Origin: USA
Genres: Doom Metal


Wretched was one of the core members of the 90's DC doom fraternity that also featured bands such as The Obsessed, Internal Void, Revelation, and Unorthodox, a close-knit group of bands with much in common (a penchant for all things doomy, some shared membership, and several all on Hellhound Records at the time). The band has been an on-again, off-again prospect for the last decade or so. As of August 2005 they had announced they were done, but under a year later (June 2006) a new lineup (below) was back in action.
