New Metal Review: Wretchedpain - The Great ReAwakening (ft. Mark Hunter)

     This is not the first time I have written about Wretchedpain and it certainly will not be the last time you hear about them, with the bands release of their killer new track, The Great ReAwakening. The track is four minutes of brutal groovy death metal, featuring none other than ex-Chimaira front man Mark Hunter sharing the microphone with Joey Glacken on vocals. The track starts with a deliciously heavy groove followed by a blast from Hunter, reminding me a lot of the Impossibility of Reason days (which is a very good thing). The instrumentals throughout the track are also top notch. The guitar work is flawless; providing a brutally heavy, yet impossibly groovy framework for the song to build off. Furthering along the brutality was the awesomely executed drumming throughout the track. If this wasn't already enough I also absolutely loved the lyrics throughout the song, drawing on themes of generational laziness, apathy, and enlightenment or lack there of. Check out the song below and make sure to check the band out if you like what you hear!

 - I was already excited to hear new material from Wretchedpain, but combined with the added bonus of Mark Hunter on the track; you got yourself a volatile and lethal combination. Any attempt to not like this song is "FEEBLE AT BEST" (and if you didn't get that reference listen to the goddamn song).
My Verdict
\m/\m/\m/\m/\m/ out of \m/\m/\m/\m/\m/
5/5 - Pure Canadian Metal at its finest!
