In The Wake Ov Sòl
4 June 2021
Marked first and foremost by their causticity, Worm Shepherd has a resolute affinity for all things oppressive and atmospheric. Packed within their ten tracks are a blend of relentless black metal unearthly howls of pain against a backdrop of tech-death and slam interludes, haunting symphonic elements, incendiary blasts and primal growls that could summon the dead from the gates of Hades. It’s a potent and bold mix.
Song after song is embroiled in a tumultuous battle between dark and light, blazing an incendiary trail that never wavers from their relentless hell-on-earth approach to create Worm Shepherd‘s dark and hard-hitting aural landscape.
From the outset Worm Shepherd align themselves with the heavy hitters of the genre, with guest spots on the album including Alex Koehler of Chelsea Grin, David Simonich of Signs of the Swarm and Adam Mercer of A Wake in Providence.
Thematically the album explores a collection of suicide scenarios and reasoning with the aim of highlight this incredibly difficult but increasingly important issue within the music community, with the hope of letting people know that they are not alone in these thoughts.
Currently Worm Shepherd are working on finalising their follow up album with plans to enter the studio in mid-2021. They are excited at the prospect of shows and tours on the horizon as the world begins to emerge from the current pandemic gripping the globe.
