Vancouver based Wormwitch have announced May 12 as the release date for their debut full length Strike Mortal Soil via Prosthetic Records and today we are pleased to bring you an exclusive premiere of one of the new tracks from the album, “Even the Sun Will Die”. It’s a must hear from a highly anticipated album so be sure to take a listen for yourself after the jump.
“Even The Sun Will Die” may prove to be one of the slower tracks on the upcoming album, but rest assured it still provides plenty of grit. The lurching, methodical cadence runs headfirst into jagged tremolo riffs and bloodcurdling screams. On the whole, however, the album is ten tracks of black metal and rock n roll savagery that strikes fast, leaves a mark and gets out quick. This should come as no surprise since the band’s members came from the hardcore band called Dead Hand, also based in Vancouver. Hardcore and d-beat definitely play a role in the album’s foundations but the scathing and cold black metal heard on the band’s debut EP The Long Defeat and then again on the single Coffin Birth forms the primary piece of the sound spectrum here.
Strike Mortal Soil was recorded with Curtis Buckoll at Rain City Recorders. Wormwitch will be on tour in June and July with Numenorean for what should be an unstoppable tour. Check them out if they swing through your city. Also, don’t forget to pick up your copy of Strike Mortal Soil on May 12 via Prosthetic Records.
