Wretched has entered the studio to record the band's third full-length album, "Son of Perdition." The forthcoming effort is set for a March 27th release and will be produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, He Is Legend, For Today) at The Basement Studio in Winston Salem, North Carolina.

Last year, Wretched solidified its line-up with the addition of industry-veterans Adam Cody (Glass Casket) and Andrew Grevey (Loculus) taking the positions of vocalist and bassist, respectively. "Son of Perdition" marks the first official appearances by Cody and Grevey since their inception into Wretched.

The band took "a huge step forward, musically," confirms guitarist and one of the two founding members Steven Funderbunk on the new record. Funderbunk goes on to say, "Lyrically, the fans can expect an apocalyptic-type theme that portrays a very personal experience. This record will include some of our darkest and most mature material written to date."

"Son of Perdition" also exposes a "more melodic approach to the Wretched sound," says Funderbunk, "A lot of the drums are harmonically matched with a lot of the guitar riffs. We also used a lot of cool chords we haven't used in the past. It's far more rhythmic and grooves more than our previous records."
