Shortly after the release of their debut album, they played their first booked show at Gamrocken Festival 2019 together with bands like Hypocrisy, Asphyx, Unleashed and Vomitory.

Now, four years after their debut full length album FLESHLETTING, they are back for more with their sophomore album CARNAL HERESY, which was released on Redefining Darkness Records, February 24 2023.


"Feeling that much of modern metal is formulaic, bland, and down right boring, Wretched Fate wanted to revive the greatness and restless energy found in Death Metal of the past and combine it with something bold and new - we believe the band have achieved this.

Wretched Fate are pushing the boundaries of modern Death Metal to the brink with musical ability, pure ferocity, and a genuine honoring of all that has come before them."
