Wretch is the first full-length album by American heavy metal band Kyuss. It was released in September 1991, on Dali Records. Previously billed as Sons of Kyuss, the band shortened their name prior to the release of this album. The album is notable for its distinctive sound, though this is not necessarily a positive; its production has been criticized and the album has been described as a poor representation of the band's sound.
