Wretch  


Wretch was formed in the early 80's and has been a metal institution in their native Cleveland for years, though for many years they never officially recorded, save the odd demo and compilation appearance. It wasn't until 2006 that they finally signed to Auburn Records (apparently it is a rite of passage for every Ohio metal band to have some association with Auburn Records), releasing Reborn in 2006 followed by the album reviewed here, Make The Garden Burn, featuring various older demo tracks, live recordings, and the like. This is classic traditional American 80's-influenced metal, nothing more and nothing less. They've since released two more albums on the Pure Steel label.
