Wretch

Reborn (Auburn)

by

Twenty years after Wretch was a force on the Cleveland metal scene, the reunited band has recorded a second album. These leather-clad longhairs are familiar faces: Drummer Jeff Curenton's credits include 13 Faces and Seven Witches. Bassist Dennis Hayes plays in Beyond Fear. Guitarist Nick Giannakos is Breaker's axe man. He and Dave Hayes team for some barely proficient dual shredding in "Cry for the Young," but jell better in thunderous numbers like "Life," when the riffing is slow and steady over Colin Watson's midrange Viking war cries.
