FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago thrashers WRATH have signed with COMBAT RECORDS who will release their long awaited new abum RAGE October 5th. Produced by Chris Djuricic & WRATH, and mixed and mastered by the legendary Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Sacred Reich, Helstar), with explosive cover art created by Ipoet Poetra/Five Mlligrams and WRATH, Rage is 10 tracks of unadulterated Thrash Metal fury.
The album will be available for pre-order this Friday, 8/10 on combatmerch.com.
The incredible perseverance of WRATH is driven by the fact that the band remains wildly-relevant through 3 decades and counting. From the 1985 breakout debut FIT OF ANGER and the twisted 1987 sophomore cult favorite NOTHING TO FEAR, original vocalist Gary Golwitzer is back at the helm, and WRATH is truly 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.
The album also features a cover of the Motorhead classic “Ace of Spades”, a tribute to the late Lemmy Kilmister, featuring a guest appearance by Armored Saint/Odin/DC4 Guitarist Jeff Duncan.
