Canadian black metal outfit WORMWITCH is proud to present their second standalone single of the year, “Exhumed From Flaming Stars.” A brooding black metal dirge with a driving punk edge, the track is now playing courtesy of Metal Injection.
Notes vocalist/bassist Robin Harris of the track, “‘Exhumed From Flaming Stars’ is an homage to the legacy of J.R.R. Tolkien, namely the tragic tale of Turin Turambar and the fell sword Gurthang, the Iron of Doom…”
Adds guitarist Colby Hink, “This song was the fourth of four tracks recorded this past Summer; the other three have yet to surface. We’ve furthered our foray into live recording, hoping to capture the energy of a live performance on our recordings as much as possible.”
Writes Metal Injection, “If you’re unfamiliar with the tales of Túrin Turambar, or you’re just in the mood for some crunchy black metal, then the new WORMWITCH single ‘Exhumed From Flaming Stars’ is for you! It also helps that WORMWITCH crafts some particularly potent black metal, and missing out on it is to deprive oneself.”

WORMWITCH began in the year 2015 amongst the rainswept wilderness of coastal British Columbia. Formed from the ashes of several local hardcore punk and metal bands, the new entity set out to combine a relentless blackened death assault with the ferocity and attitude of crust punk and vintage rock and roll. They released their first demo, The Long Defeat in 2015 and shortly thereafter signed with Prosthetic Records, under which they released Strike Mortal Soil (2017), Heaven That Dwells Within (2019), and Wolf Hex (2021). During that time the band toured with the likes of The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Necrot, Uada, Bat, Midnight, and many others, earning themselves a dedicated cult following and international critical praise.
In 2022, WORMWITCH began to independently release a string of singles and embark upon several tours of North America, honing their craft and continuing their tried and true tradition of devilish speed, searing melody, and diabolical intensity.
