So, I haven't heard another album from this band (though that's most definitely my newest top priority, to be followed up on post-haste), but if this is simply "in-line" with their prior albums (as I've recently read), then this is, by far, one of the best metal outfits currently blessing us with their pure songwriting skill and musicianship. (Thank Jason Suecof, as well, for mixing/producing another killer album; has he ever produced an album that wasn't absolutely awesome?) I must, of course, give respect to Jose (Sirius 40, of course), for introducing me to this hidden gem (just as he's done so many times before); this justifies the price of Sirius single-handedly (even for those of us who don't listen to pop, country, or smooth jazz...). I won't serve up a track-by-track breakdown because, quite simply, every track on the album is worthwhile (see: no filler; the primary hallmark, for me, of a great "album"); suffice it to say that if you enjoy brutal death metal (let's not further sub-classify this, please...), you will most certainly not want to pass this one up. If it's topped by anything else in 2014, I'll genuinely be surprised. Highly recommended!

Edit: in my opinion, Cannibal far surpasses the band's previous efforts, though some of that is definitely attributable to its far superior production quality...

Aside from its goregrind-esque name and title (I know, I know: It seems like Chris Barnes should be calling and asking for his monikers back), Wretched are actually far from being another Cannibal Corpse or Carcass rip-off. Their sound, as exemplified perfectly on the group's fourth effort, 2014's "Cannibal," actually shares more in common with technical death metal a la The Faceless, Origin, Spawn Of Possession, and Dying Fetus. And the vocals, which typically alternate between low growls and high shrieks/screams, are more Black Dahlia Murder than anything else. But Wretched's biggest influence actually comes from another band: Necrophagist. In fact, if one closes their eyes, they might actually think that "Cannibal" is the long-lost follow up to that German quintet's sophomoric effort, 2004's "Epitaph."

And like Necrophagist, Wretched also share the same attribute of falling into the trap that far-too-many tech death bands fall into: Possessing a sound that is lacking (and one might even argue devoid of) live energy, and one that is has musicianship that is too mechanical, and thus often borders on sounding nearly robotic. Nevertheless, the record is loaded to the brim with the good stuff: Brutal vocals, strong bass lines, and drumming that is typically quite insane, and impeccably tight and precise. But it is, of course, the guitar work that dominates the maelstrom, here, as Joel Moore and Steven Fundelburk spew out a zillion great riffs and technically-dazzling leads. And their solos might be only occasional, but when they are included, they are always quite ripping.

Opener "Gold Above Me" is half curiously slow and plodding instrumental, and half blisteringly fast with slamming blast beats and brutally low death metal growling.

Listed and talked about by Jose Mangin on XM Liquid Metal Channel 40 (with a 40) as one of the heaviiest CD's ever recorded (but I have heard that from ohers too in talking of thier albums.) - The song they played from this one was just awesome and I cranked the volume up when the bass drums kicked in (I was driving a rental car with super bass in it and was floored.)

Good album but I liked their others better. Too much focus on vocals for me; Otherwise I really enjoyed it!
