Blackened thrash trio WRAITH set to unleash Absolute Power
U.S. blackened thrash trio WRAITH have announced their forthcoming new album, Absolute Power. The wounds left by the 2018 full-length debut – Heed The Warning – still fresh, WRAITH is back with another deadly assault.
The new album is faster, heavier, meaner and a lot more pissed off than their previous releases. Absolute Power has a perfect blend of speed metal and thrash metal with a punk attitude. The album is nine originals and a Misfits cover that results in 28 minutes of no bullshit speed and thrash.
The band has tapped Indy Metal Vault to launch the exclusive premiere of album track “Devil’s Hour” Check it out now at this location.
WRAITH will release Absolute Power on August 16.

“…the band has cleverly crafted together elements of punk, touches of speed metal, blasts of Motörhead, dashes of Venom and Bulldozer, sprigs of Teutonic precision, doses of black metal etc.” – Metal Forces Magazine
