California extreme metal band THE FUCKING WRATH has wrapped work on its new album Valley of the Serpent's Soul which will see a September 27 release via NYC's Tee Pee Records. Recorded at Satellite Recording Studios in Ventura, CA and mastered by Tim Harkins (Black Sabbath, Alice in Chains, Ozzy Osbourne), Valley of the Serpent's Soul is an incendiary, heavy-hitting high-powered assault that burns with a merciless, unrestrained ferocity. Trend-eschewing and uncompromising, the album is the definitive musical expression of survival of the fittest!
"Valley of the Serpent's Soul"
"With "Valley of The Serpents Soul" we are out to smash your eardrums with an audio assault of blood, riffs, and gear." said the group when asked for comment. "Longer, harder and heavier, our aim is to dish out punishing riffs and blazing solos that would make Tony Iommi proud!"
"Driving home and listening to the album after we had completed it, I suddenly heard a loud bang!" said vocalist / guitarist Craig Kasamis. "My right tire had blown out and my car proceeded to do a 360 on the freeway, but with God-like reflexes and a few crafty maneuvers I manage to skid to a halt in the slow lane. A few deeply terrified breaths later I realized that, this album literally could kill you."

Delivering a sound-assault that mixes blistering distortion, nihilistic rage, scorching metallic power and fire-breathing vocals mixed with dangerously high levels of intensity, THE FUCKING WRATH do not mess around. TFW formed in 2005, recorded its first album Season of Evil the week of 06.06.06 and embarked on two nationwide DIY tours alongside Tragedy, Blue Cheer and High on Fire, gaining an army of enthusiasts with each and every live performance. THE FUCKING WRATH, whose sound has been described as "an amalgamation of groups such as Discharge, Black Flag, The Melvins and "Kill 'Em All"-era Metallica" issued the critically lauded Terra Fire EP in October 2010 and averages close to 150 shows per year with no sign of slowing down.
THE FUCKING WRATH features Craig Kasamis (guitar / vocals), John Crerar (drums), Nick Minasain (bass) and Brent Woodward (guitar).
