Spanish technical death metal masters WORMED will be releasing their new EP, ‘Metaportal,’ on July 19.
In conjunction with the EP announcement, the band have unveiled “Remote Void,” the sci-fi themed first single from the offering.
WORMED comment on the track: “Entering the Metaportal. A nano technological war has been unleashed in the void to defeat the last sower of human life, Krighsu. In a desperate attempt to help a galactic system in danger, Krighsu must access the vast Metaportal, what he doesn’t know yet is the reason for its existence.”
Space – the final frontier. Yet, when WORMED reach out into the void, the result sounds far more like a dark space opera inhabited by bizarre aliens, genetically and technically evolved meta-humans struggling for power and survival in galactic empires.
Now, the nano-technological war has been unleashed in the void to defeat the last sower of human life, Krighsu.
Odd-time signatures, avalanches of breaks and complex rhythmical as well as melodic patterns will excite every aficionado of extreme technicality, while growls down-tuned strings and double-bass assaults will more than satisfy extreme metal connoisseurs.
While being outstandingly skilled musicians, WORMED are avoiding any self-indulgent show of prowess for its own sake.
Instead the five-piece from Madrid clearly lays its emphasis on creating atmospheric songs, which develop and grow along the underlying story.
