WORMED is touring behind 2013's critically-acclaimed 'Exodromos' album. The Madrid-based band is currently writing for their first Season of Mist full length.
One of the most respected bands in the international death metal underground, WORMED (Phlegeton : Vocals, Migueloud : Guitar, J.Oliver: Guitar, Guillemoth : Bass, G-Calero: Drums) has earned a well-deserved reputation as an undeniably extreme and creative force. The band exploded onto the scene with their cult 2003 debut, 'Planisphaerium'. WORMED has since toured the world, playing in prominent international festivals as such as Maryland Deathfest (MDF), Neurotic Death Fest, SWR Barroselas Metalfest, Death Feast Open Air, Mountains of Death, Obscene Extreme Festival and more.
What the press is saying about WORMED:
"Weird, adventurous modern death metal had a banner year in 2013. This is my favorite example. ...genius in practice, Wormed use thrusters of pure shred to launch slam-happy brutal death metal through the techkinox wormhole and into the cosmos." - One of Stereogum's - 50 Best metal albums of 2013
"With swine-like growls and switchback riffs cutting razor-sharp corners like a Tron light cycle, WORMED's "The Nonlocality Trilemma" is engineered to bludgeon you into multidimensional submission. ...yet for all its disorientation, there's something rational about the structure of it all. Wormed goes beyond: This music is alien, unknown." - NPR
"...it’s pretty unassailable, if you’re a fan of savage blast beats, sci-fi riffing, and ultra-downtuned chugs that will make you want to punch holes in your living room floor. ...heavy and hyper-aggressive, but still extremely technical and complex, music." - Phil Freeman, Burning Ambulance.com
"Wormed's Exodromos was an album that felt captivating. It's bleak lyricism mixed with Dillinger Escape Plan soundscapes pulled together a mangled and manic experience." - Metal Injection
"[WORMED] spends much of its discography unearthing lyrical themes of astronomy, astrophysics, biology and human evolution with an extremely deep and complex analysis."- Westword
"Wormed are working feverishly to expand the genre's borders. " - Hank Shteamer, Noisey.com
Wed, Jul 16 2014: COMPLETE FAILURE
Latest release: "The Art Gospel of Aggravated Assault"
Release date: Fri, Feb 15 2013, US Tue, Feb 19 2013
Pittsburgh's COMPLETE FAILURE are streaming their Season of Mist full-length, 'The Art Gospel of Aggravated Assault' on YouTube. The album is also streaming in full via Bandcamp, where COMPLETE FAILURE are offering the track titled "Errant Social Mile Marker" as a free download.
'The Art Gospel of Aggravated Assault' is available via the Season of Mist e-shop.
Regarding the album, the band said: "'The Art Gospel of Aggravated Assault' is the god-product for us 4 of many lost relationships, arguments, lost sleep, migraines, pain, loss of life, debt, one assault, one ruined career, countless hours of driving, writing, rewriting, rewriting, fighting and shit talk over arrangements, drug addiction and rehabilitation, and about 50 hours straight of recording over the course of two and a half years at people's houses in a few different states at pretty much any affiliate band members house that had a microphone and a laptop that could run recording software of any kind. Nothing I personally have ever been a part of as a human being has ever called upon so much out of me from a standpoint of living breathing resentment and frustration for being alive and trying to "keep up" with earth around you. With every passing day to practice to show to belligerent release of sobriety between us as members of Complete Failure, it was more and more obvious that if it weren't all coming out right now then never. I don't know if the wise man ever said it but he should have. You could die tomorrow for anything, so why not kill yourself for nothing today."
COMPLETE FAILURE has toured the world playing with bands such as TODAY IS THE DAY, ANTIGAMA, MISERY INDEX, REVOCATION, RWAKE, FUCK THE FACTS, and festivals such as Maryland Death Fest, Sincerity Fest and more.
