History[edit]

Foundation (2008–2012)[edit]

Necrowretch was formed in 2008 by guitarist Vlad with "the impure intention to play sadistic-gravecracking-possessed death metal".[6] Vlad was joined by drummer Blastphemator and recorded their first demo "Rising from Purulence" after 3 rehearsals. Bassist Amphycion joined after seeing them play a gig, making the band a trio and then going on to record their second demo "Necrollections" in 2010. Their first EP, "Putrefactive Infestation" was released in 2011 on 12" vinyl containing 4 tracks. They then released a compilation; "Ripping Souls of Sinners", followed by a second EP; "Now You're in Hell", released on 7" vinyl consisting of 2 tracks and featuring a cover of Death's "Zombie Ritual". Blastphemator later left the band later in 2011 due to a "total lack of motivation".[7]
