Wretched Tongues – The Absence of Light Song Review – Metalhead Community

Today we are featuring another promising deathcore/death metal band; Wretched Tongues, from the USA. We have reviewed their super tight song; The Absence of Light, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Wretched Tongues is another promising deathcore/death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; The Absence of Light, off from their latest single with the same title, which was released in 2019. As you all know, metalcore and deathcore are the two most trending metal styles lately. I am not a big fan, to be honest. However, whenever I come across a band who makes a difference just like in this example, I don’t mind listening to it on repeat for a few days. Wretched Tongues here on Metalhead Community’s radar and we are going to take a closer look at it.

The Absence of Light is such a badass, monstrous song. The music is so tight and evil, it was an instant approval for me. Some of you might remember that I am an ambient music fan. The small touch here on this song gave it a brand new life, gave it a brand new feeling, in my opinion. The melody of the clean guitars has a game-changer role here. It connected everything and created a piece of super evil music for 3 minutes long. And it reminded me of the saying; God is in the details. 

The song itself is an absolute massacre. I fuckin loved every single thing about it. The attitude is so powerful it makes you wanna mosh wherever you are at the moment. On the other hand, elements are very well written and connected. They all carry the texture of the general vibe, which is amazing. The tension of this evil feeling never fails the listener all along the way. As you also know I listen to tons of new music every day thanks to my daily job. There are many incredible people out there writing incredible music. The Absence of Light was one of the special ones for me not because of its incredible riffs, vocals, sound quality or something, only because of its tense feeling all along the way. There are many songs with a powerful feeling overall but having the same texture from the beginning until the end is rather unique if you know what I mean.


The Absence of Light’s technical standards are a little bit controversial, to be honest. For me, I fucking loved every piece of detail on it as well as the production. But my drummer friend said the opposite which was quite surprising for me as well. When you think about it, yeah, the general sound quality is quite “unnaturally” good. This is a matter of choice and we are not here to judge. I’d listen to this song no matter what, I don’t give a rats ass. The only thing I’d rather take into account here is the live performances. Some bands and musicians might be ok playing live with a MacBook, I am not. But again, this is a matter of choice.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Wretched Tongues. Their way of thinking, the dark, evil and moody vibe in their music is 100% what I am into. It was an instant crush. The Absence of Light has earned its place in our Top Metal Songs Playlist on Spotify and on my personal playlist!
