Children of Wrath is a symphonic melodic blackened death metal project formed by Luke Dinan out of Phoenix, Arizona in the United States. The project began in 2016 and has recorded two albums - No Flesh Spared and Supernatural Dimensions - both coming out through Nosral Recordings.
Children of Wrath began in 2016 as a project of Luke Dinan, formerly of the pop rock band, The Future Calling, which exerted more Depeche Mode and Tears for Fears influence. Dinan, shifting from the pop genre drastically, formed Children of Wrath and diving headlong into a symphonic melodic death metal project. With the name derived from Ephesians 2:3, the project continued onwards and began to record his debut.
On June 13, 2017, the project released their debut, No Flesh Spared. The album was well very well received, receiving very positive reviews. On July 26, it was announced that the project, alongside Symphony of Heaven, had signed to Nosral Recordings. The label would re-release No Flesh Spared with new artwork on August 24, 2017.
Shortly thereafter, the project released a preview of the next album, The First 10 Minutes. The same announcement revealed the title was Supernatural Dimensions. In January 2018, the project recorded a score for a Star Wars fan film. The track was released through The Bearded Dragon Productions. On August 3, 2018, the band released Supernatural Dimensions through Nosral.
Taking influences from bands like Whitecross, who performed power metal and hard rock, all the way to Six Feet Deep, who performed hardcore punk and sludge metal, Children of Wrath has attempted to incorporate elements from several different genres of music, describing his style Blackened Symphonic Melodic Holy Death metal.
