Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of the sci-fi focused technical death metal masters WORMED. Fresh off the heels of 2013's critically-acclaimed album 'Exodromos', 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 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.
The band issued the following statement about the new collaboration with Season of Mist: "Wormed is really proud to announce the signing with the almighty label Season of Mist, a label with some of the bands that have influenced us throughout these years! Being part of this label is a big step in our career!"
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
