Wormlord, the formidable force in the world of old school death metal, is thrilled to announce the debut release of their long-awaited debut album, "Open Wounds." The album is already available digitally since March 12th, 2023, with physical CD copies available for fans to grab until the end of the year.
"Open Wounds" is a relentless sonic onslaught that harkens back to the golden age of death metal. With powerful riffs, fast-paced drumming, and shivering vocals, Wormlord has crafted an album that pays homage to the genre's roots while adding some extra flavours to the boundaries of what old school death metal can be. Archetypes of Bloodbath, Carcass, Entombed and Dismember can be heard behind the sound wall.
The album features eight tracks that are in the essence of brutality, with each song delivering a relentless barrage of crushing buzzsaw guitars, bone-rattling bass, and unrelenting percussion. From the ferocious title track opener to the haunting melodies of "Larvae Carnival," "Open Wounds" takes listeners back to late 80s with a blackened death metal twist. Wormlord's dedication to preserving the essence of old school death metal is evident in every aspect of "Open Wounds."
The band's tight musicianship and unwavering commitment to their craft shine through, making this debut album a must-listen for fans of the genre. "We've poured our hearts and souls into 'Open Wounds,' and we couldn't be more excited to share it with the world," says drummer Olli, who is also man behind the whole recording process from recording to mastering, as the album is fully created with inhouse expertise.
"This album is a testament to our passion for old school death metal, and we hope it resonates with our fans as much as it does with us." To celebrate the surprisingly high attention of "Open Wounds," Wormlord will bring physical formats during 2023. "Open Wounds" is already available on all major digital music platforms since March 12th, 2023, and physical CD copies can soon be purchased via CD distributors, directly messaging from the band's Instagram @wormlord_official or via Bandcamp https://wormlord.bandcamp.com/
