THE STUNNING NEW WRAITHS EP RELEASED IN JULY
Highly rated Northern Hell Metal crew ‘Wraiths’ release their blistering new EP ‘Hollow’ through all national stores on Monday 14th July.
Forged and fertilized in the putrid cesspool that is Middlesbrough, Wraiths have emerged from a swampy pit of sadness and despair, wielding their self described ‘Hell Metal’ to portray the darkest imaginings of the human conscience. With influences oozing from The Acacia Strain to Black Sabbath, and for fans of heavy, relentless and torturous riffs, they have spawned a unique and hellish sound echoing the dying shriek of a banshee.
Wraiths were conceived in 2012 by friends Daniel Charlton (Guitar), Rick Baker (Drums), Rae Robinson (Vocals) and Dale Husband (Bass) who wanted to chisel out a sound that ripped apart the standard formulae of deathcore, yet remained true to the band’s influences and beliefs. The North East riff-slingers have certainly fulfilled their manifesto. When the four piece hit the road, it wasn’t long before they had a cluster of successful shows under their belts, as well as sharing stages with Demoraliser, Brutality Will Prevail, Madball, End Reign, Iced Out, Pay No Respect, Odessa and Destroyer BC. Wraiths are now set to span their reach even further with European touring penned for the remainder of the year.
Word is now starting to spread like wildfire about the northern riff beasts; Metal Hammer Magazine lifted a track from their previous EP for their February 2014 issue and the band will soon be lighting up TV screens with their explosive new video single ‘Gravelord’. This summer also sees the nationwide release of the quartet’s new EP entitled ‘Hollow’. With five ferocious slabs of inventive deathcore, from the viciously snarling riffery of the opener ‘Godslayer’ that hammers deep into your cranium, to the throbbing and earth shattering assault of ‘Malignation’ and the earnest brutality and pounding groove of their new single ’Gravelord’, the EP is a hell of a ride. ‘Devoured’ continues to take the record to deeper depths with its cutting riff attack and full frontal vocal battering of closer ‘Belial’, confirming the band’s place as a true new force to be reckoned with on the deathcore scene.
