Wretch Inks Deal With Pure Steel Records

Wretch, a long-time member of Cleveland's metal underground, has signed a world-wide recording contract with Germany's Pure Steel Records.

Wretch previously released two albums with Cleveland's Auburn Records, gaining a toehold in the European metal scene with first album "Reborn" in 2006, and furthering their overseas notoriety by penning "Make this Garden Burn" in 2007, the theme song of Germany's Headbangers Open Air Festival. But it was the band's recently self-released EP "Rise to Power," featuring new front man Ron Emig, that helped secure the contract with Pure Steel.

"We are extremely excited to be able to take advantage of this opportunity." Said Nick Giannakos, Wretch guitarist and longest-running member. "Wretch has been associated with Bill Peters and his Auburn Records label since the 80s, and we will always be appreciative of the doors he has opened up for us, but signing with Pure Steel is a smart business move for Wretch and will allow a much wider distribution of our music."
