THEM MARTYRS: Wretched: EP

A technical, tight, metallic hardcore album without a lyric sheet. What’s that all about? I was super stoked halfway through the first track, then they got “melodic.” Not “they,” just the vocals, and just for some random parts. But still… on every song. Seriously, if it wasn’t for that, this would be super rad and hold its own with outfits such as Ruiner or The Bled. Wait, I take that back, I have no idea what the fuck this guy is even saying. That still matters, right?
