The new album is faster, heavier, meaner and a lot more pissed off than their previous releases. Absolute Power has a perfect blend of speed metal and thrash metal with a punk attitude. The album is nine originals and a Misfits cover that results in 28 minutes of no bullshit speed and thrash.
The band recently tapped Indy Metal Vault to launch the exclusive premiere of album track “Devil’s Hour” Check it out now at this location.

“At times the band bring to mind blackened thrash kingpins Midnight while at other points I could swear I was hearing Power Trip. It’s good as hell, folks. Get out your bullet belt and click play.”
“Like the spectral entity that Northern Indiana trio shares its namesake with, Wraith has come back meaner than ever.”
“Damn, an infectious nature such as this doesn’t happen too often. Instantly yanks one from the “I wonder what this album offers” state to “Holy balls, I need room to move!” For those who need a description, think speed metal with a dash of thrash sans frilly bits, which rarely let’s up!” (94/100)
“For the many of you, like myself who are fans of Hellripper, Bastardizer, Midnight, Bewitcher etc, this release is an essential and WRAITH should be joining the ranks of these bands.” (8.5/10)
“For the punk goers, there’s still plenty of that lingering within, and anyone into black/speed/thrash/punk is encouraged to seek this out!”
“…the band has cleverly crafted together elements of punk, touches of speed metal, blasts of Motörhead, dashes of Venom and Bulldozer, sprigs of Teutonic precision, doses of black metal etc.”
“Wraith are a very great sounding mixture of black, thrash, speed metal and punk. You should check out this band.”
Absolute Power was written and recorded by WRAITH, and mixed and mastered by CJ Rayson. Guitar solos on “Meaningless Planet,” “The Curse” and “War of Aggression” performed by Jason Schultz.
