The Fucking Wrath

Season of Evil

Goodfellow Records

Yep, you can definitely tell that the members of the Fucking Wrath all worked in record stores. They approach their sturdy, spiky, flailing metal thunder with a collector’s voraciousness and excitement; they realize there’re so many different ways to be fucking heavy. Why not try the lot? I remember at various points listening to Season Of Evil thinking, wow, this tune sounds like crossover, cool this one’s all doomy and groovy, holy shit, dig that thrashing madness, pure rock action; hey man you got your Metallica in my Discharge. The red-eyed musical schizophrenia on display is akin to outfits like Superjoint Ritual, Prong and Haunted. But they pound away with the unmitigated glee of a young Motorhead (there’s even three of ’em). And yet, sometimes the performances seem almost tentative, as if they haven’t transcended the sum of their influences — another inherent problem of being a music fan, you have so much history to play with — and with a name like the Fucking Wrath you HAVE to come out at all times with guns blazing.That said, the gents of the Fucking Wrath know their shit. And what else they know is how to name a fucking band! This is one logo that deserves to be scratched on school folder and (lower) arms by bored teenagers all across the country.
