    It's a caustic dose of trashcore and punk that's light on melody, but loaded with riffs. [No. 103, p.59]

    Their relentless attack is deadly serious. [Jan 2014, p.104]

    Oozing Wound frontman Zack Weil has an unhinged screech reminiscent of Destruction's Schmier, symbolising the group's mastery of a kind of primitive thrash with no goal greater than the release of energy. [Nov 2013, p.52]

    Thankfully, the songs are varied and powerful enough to sustain the album, and their balls-to-the-wall approach is both refreshing and entertaining.

    There is a kind of metallic je ne sais quoi that elevates Oozing Wound above your average grinding maniacs with a smirk-inducing moniker. [Nov-Dec 2013, p.100]

    While it's no Manifest Decimation, Retrash is still one of the year's most notable mutations of thrash, and Oozing Wound show a lot of promise to get even weirder.

    As it is, Retrash is a bracing and exhilarating blast of monster guitar riffs and enough speed and aggression to make the geezers in Metallica jealous.

    Oozing Wound is plain, taut, dumb thrash metal, which is to say, it’s firm, and aggressive, and heavy on logic and structure.

    Uncomplicated, doing precisely what it says on the tin, Retrash might not be an album of the year contender or a game-changer; but for pure unadulterated fun Oozing Wound are pretty hard to beat.
