Today death metal’s favorite space travelers WORMED bring you “Stellar Depopulation,” courtesy of Invisible Oranges. The latest track premiere comes in celebration of the band’s forthcoming studio outing, Exodromos. Recorded at Sadman Studios in Madrid, Spain and mastered by Mika Jussila (Amorphis, Impaled Nazarene, Children of Bodom, Nightwish etc.) at the infamous Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland, Exodromos will be unleashed upon the masses on March 26, 2013 via Willowtip Records. Notes Invisible Oranges of the offering: “WORMED is playing cutting-edge technical death metal now, complete with actual dynamics and guitar work that is both adventurously noisy and adventurously melodic – a rare combination.”
Commended for its “astronomically high mindfuck factor” by Decibel Magazine, the 10-track Exodromos serves as the prequel to Planisphaerium (originally released in 2003 in Japan then remastered last year by Willowtip), which centers itself around futuristic science concepts and chaotic visions of the last human left in the cosmos. Elaborates the band of the latest single: “Into an extremely dense black hole, trillions of stars are dragged. The gravitational forces degenerate the matter in the re-collapse of the universe. ‘Stellar Depopulation’ is an analysis of a computer, a warning, and at the same time, the vision of the end of known era of cosmos through the eyes of a bio-technological brain.”
Heed the warning at THIS LOCATION.
Sophisticated, sharp and meticulously calculated, with Exodromos WORMED hurls a maniacal ambush of concentrated brutality and deep space delirium. Made of dissonant yet dynamic hyper-technical guitar traveling at breakneck speeds, the record offers up some of the band’s most technical and plainly obliterating material to date. For Exodromos preorders, got to THIS LOCATION.
“…a ridiculously brutal album that also manages to be mind-blowingly unique. WORMED have crafted some of the most alien yet memorable riffs ever, and strung them together to create a stellar album full of masterful songs. Exodromos is clearly one of the best extreme metal releases of the past few years, and a must-listen.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
