It all began in a dark rehearsal room in 2010...The Mighty Wraith was formed.
We've had many ups and downs in our time together but the highs have always upstaged the lows.
Some of the highs that we have experienced together include:
Black Country Battle Of The Bands ( 2010 Finalists )
Supporting Dio Disciples ( Wolvehampton Slade Rooms 2011 )
First EP Recorded ( Univibe Studios 2011 )
Surface Unsigned ( 2011 Semi-Finalists )
Metal To The Masses ( 2012 Finalists )
Second Ep Recorded ( Univibe Studios 2012 )
Supporting Titan ( Roadhouse 2012 )
Supporting Diamond Head and Uli Jon Roth ( Birmingham o2 Academy 2013 )

Metal To The Masses ( 2015 offerd a slot on the Bloodstock Jäger Stage)
We've had the pleasure of working with many great promoters through the years, some of whom have worked with us from the start all the way up until now.
March 2015 took us to a key point in our history. The addition of bass player Chris Musgrove gave the band a new kick and relit the proverbial fires of Valhalla.
This year has proved to be a taxing year but a positive one in the eyes of all members. Being offered a slot at Bloodstock sets us up to get ready for the release of our 2 part album which shall be launched by the end of 2015.
As 3 time finalists to the Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses competition we can tell you with experience that the quality of bands increases every year. Every year it gets harder to even break through the opening stage and every year, as a band, we stand there amazed at the talent we are up against. That is what this competition is about - for once, a professional organisation going out and reaching towards and searching the underground looking for the talent on the same streets that first bought music to its knees.
Every year, with the Metal 2 The Masses competition, Bloodstock opens its humongous and internationally recognised arms and embraces the metal scene that is going on behind sold out arena tours. It gets out and sees the bands that bust their guts every week on stage just trying to make one more fan.
Playing the competition this year has seen us the most challenged we have ever been. The competition in its very nature forces everybody involved to up their game just to be noticed. It is this competition that will always drive the underground scene and without the support of institutions such as Bloodstock and competitions such as Metal 2 The Masses the underground metal scene will soon be destroyed.
Our music and lifestyle is in danger of being a money driven no hope show and without festivals like Bloodstock Open Air getting out there and seeing the home grown talent available, what defense do we have?
Thankyou Bloodstock for the opportunity you give to so many people with this competition. Without you, none of us would be here.
Nobody knows what the future will offer, however we can promise you a UK tour; A lot more gigs; and a 2 part album that will blow your minds.
See you soon - 'The Mighty Wraith'
