THEM MARTYRS: Wretched: 12” EP

Pummeling, crusty hardcore from Ireland that treads so hard through the dirt that you’re not even phased by the occasional Tool-esque vocals. They achieve a range of diverse sounds all within the genre they’re playing. Atmospheric soundscapes become apocalyptic ruins in seconds. It’s all packaged in album art that’s pleasantly confusing and totally unlabeled for maximum brutality. This is your winter cider soundtrack.
