Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Metal heads. Recorded during the cold British winter of 2010 at London's Orgone Studios and produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano, The Wretch sees the band pushing its trademark blend of skull-crushing riffs and pounding rhythms to new heights and marks a return to the slower all-out doom tempos of the group's early albums combined with "true doom metal" lyrical themes

1. Bastards Born
2. The Scovrge Ov Drvnkenness
3. To The Rack With Them
4. Day of Farewell
5. Castle of the Devil
6. Coven of Cain

This is a great album. I think they label it Doom, but it could also fall under the Stoner Rock moniker. Yet really it's neither, or both.

BIG, THICK bass, and great guitar solos that remind me of early Metallica; not in style, only in that they come to the front of the music, stand alone, and rip, but still meld into the song structure. And the rhythms are groovy; Clutch groovy, though it's not jam rock. The drummer has almost a jazz-funk style, yet it is very much 'metal'

Frankly, I really can't put my finger on it. Everything sounds familiar, but it comes across as entirely unique. Even the vocals- the singer doesn't have a stellar voice, nor entirely unique style, but he uses it tastefully. So many singers either overdo it, or underdo it, rather than know what they have and how to best utilize it.

And maybe that's it- this album is well written, plays to the strengths of all contributors. And it's heavy as... Amazon made me delete that last word.

The more I listen to it, the more I think this may be one of the best modern metal albums I've stumbled across in a long time.

One of the best (if not THE best) doom metal releases of 2011 is also one of the most retro sounding (the other one being the sorry Pentagram release). TGoS ditch their trademark Conan themes to get more personal and fire up the angst. The new introspective lyrics go hand in hand with the band's style in this album: a plodding, crushingly heavy sound, repetitive, mesmerizing songs and Simon's Wino infused voice (his best ever to my ears) round up a fantastic record. They even get to show some humor Scovrge of Drvnkedness).

Bottom line: if you're at least a little bit interested in doom metal, you MUST give "The Wretch" a spin.

This is my first Gates of Slumber album. Previous efforts look potentially interesting but I never made the plunge. For this album, however, I fully agree with the other reviewers--among the best Doom album of 2011 (would be the best if Electric Wizard hadn't released Black Masses). The parallels to Wino-era Saint Vitus are obvious. Overall, this is a perfectly crafted album in terms of songwriting, musicianship, tempo, sound, and mood. Great guitar-bass balance. The vocalist is excellent. Its been a long time that one album has come to dominate my listening.
