“Draw Blood” is taken from WRATH‘s long awaited new album titled Rage, in stores October 5th via COMBAT/EMP.
Produced by Chris Djuricic & WRATH and mixed and mastered by the legendary Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Sacred Reich, Helstar), Rage is 10 tracks of unadulterated thrash metal fury for those who remember the good old days.
The incredible perseverance of WRATH is driven by the fact that the band remains wildly relevant over 3 decades after their inception! From their 1985 breakout debut Fit Of Anger to 1987’s sophomore cult favourite Nothing To Fear, thrash fans have sought out their twisted take on thrash to sate their thirst for such violence. With WRATH’s original vocalist Gary Golwitzer back at the helm, WRATH are truly back and firing on all cylinders!
Originally written as the follow up to 1990’s Insane Society, some tracks from Rage originated as far back as 1989. With a fresh approach – and a new record deal with David Ellefson and Thom Hazaert’s revived COMBAT RECORDS – the rock-solid lineup of Golwitzer on vocals, bassist Gary Modica, the dual-guitar attack of Scott Nyquist and Rob Noon, and powerhouse drummer Jake Fromkin, dove head first into RAGE with a renewed sense of power, angst, and purpose!
Says COMBAT’s Thom Hazaert, “When me and David (Ellefson) relaunched COMBAT, our goal was to faithfully bridge the past, present, and future of thrash and underground metal. And WRATH, to me, was always one of the unsung heroes of the genre, putting out indisputable classics like NOTHING TO FEAR, and FIT OF ANGER, that are still so highly regarded by fans. So it made perfect sense when the opportunity came to add them to the COMBAT roster, especially with the reunited lineup with Gary back in the fold. RAGE is an amazing record that I think fans, new and old, will talk about for years to come.”
