Niagara vocalist Joey Glacken has fused a solid cast of seasoned metal heads into his current project: wretchedpain. Initially conceived nearly a decade ago, wretchedpain pools its heavy talent from lead guitarist Sam Bean of Mithras, The Senseless, and formerly The Berzerker, drummer Kevin Talley of Daath, and formerly Chimaira, Misery Index and Dying Fetus, and bass player Dan Mackie of MDM and Defence Mechanism. The debut album "Congregation" was mixed and mastered by veteran Chris "Zeuss" Harris, producer of Hatebreed, Chimaira, Whitechapel, and Shadows Fall. Melding elements of death metal, tech metal, and grind with a heavy groove, sets wretchedpain apart from others. The band is true to its music, refuses to be ignored and is set to bring their brutal metal to the world.

In 2010 Wretchedpain unleashed it’s debut album upon the world and recruited a talented line-up to carry forward with an intense live show that has destroyed everything in it’s past. In late 2010 Cale Costello and Matt Grabon came onboard on drums and bass respectively( Both formerly of Niagara Falls based tech/death metal band Bathed in Blood). As well, they recently welcomed Aaron Guthridge on lead guitar whose shredding abilities are unmatched.

Having shared the stage with such acts as Napalm Death, The Last Felony and Threat Signal in 2011, Wretchedpain set forth on world domination and have conquered all in their path.

In 2012, Wretchedpain began writing their sophmore effort and will is currently working with Jean-Francois Dagenais of Kataklysm on the mixing and mastering. Throughout the writing process, Wretchedpain played many high profile shows and festivals alongside such national acts as Beneath the Massacre, Baptized in Blood, Revocation and A Life Once Lost and currently has opening slots for bands such as the Faceless and Cryptopsy.
In 2013 Wretchedpain Released A new EP The Hell You Seek, Played shows alongside bands such as Fear Factory, Kittie and Suffocation and ended the year with a two week tour of Europe.
