Wretched Soul are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of black, death, thrash, and heavy metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Ghost World" which was released by UKEM Records.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with some traditional metal style clean singing and you can also hear elements of speed metal in the bands musical style and the vocals also mix power and thrash metal together and after awhile death metal growls are added into certain sections of the recording.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are very melodic and also gives the music more of an old school edge and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and traces of black metal can be heard in some of the screams and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the faster riffing also uses a decent amount of tremolo picking and as the album progresses a brief use of acoustic guitars can be heard.
Wretched Soul plays a musical style that mixes black, death, thrash and traditional metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Literature, Death, and Wretchedness themes.
In my opinion Wretched Soul are a very great sounding mixture of black, death, thrash, and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Necromancer" "The Great Destroyer" and "The Ghost Road". 8 out of 10.
