Sci-fi technical death metal group Wormed has entered Sadman studios in Madrid to begin record a forthcoming 3rd studio album, and first for Season of Mist.
Pictures of the ongoing recording process are available at the official Wormed Facebook page here. Regarding the upcoming album, the band comments:
"The material we are recording for the new album can be described as an epic and supermassive attack of nanomachines, molecular blast beats in warp drive, riffing algorithms from the pulsar and non-organic voices from galaxy's central black hole, closing the trilogy. A prequel that reveals the events leading up to Krighsu's mission.
"Prepare your brain structures for one of the most extreme acoustic pressures ever written by Wormed. Will your human neurons withstand the pressure?"
Solace Of Requiem has issued the following brief announcement about hitting the road in Europe this Winter:
"We are delighted to announce we will be hitting Europe this winter supporting Ulcerate and Wormed! We will be promoting our new CD 'Casting Ruin' which is out on the 29th August. Get ready for some carnage!"

Wormed will be joined by California's Condemned, Japan's Infernal Revulsion, and New Jersey's Cognitive. More...

Track three, “Vortex Mitosis,” is a remix based on the original song “Voxel Mitosis” and was recorded and mixed by Wormed vocalist Phlegeton in January 2012. Track four, “Tunnel Of Ions,” (live) was recorded at Mountains Of Death in Switzerland in 2011 an remastered by DP Rey at Delta314 Sound Studio.
Wormed is a quirky band, in that all of its songs are themed with astrophysics and some themes of metaphysics and possible quantum physics. They even call their band members cosmonauts. Wormed will be appearing at that three day gala Extremefest during July 5th-7th, with more details over on the event page. Below is an upload of the studio version of "Tunnel of Ions," whose live remix is featured on the reissue.

Fatigue had definitely begun to set in by Day Four. Through the beer belly, muscle ache (everyone’s hotel was up the hill), blown-out senses, and heat I thought could only happen in the south, I persevered though badly worn. The venue was getting pretty rough also. Everyone was tired, but still partying hard. Inside it was sticky and stinky like it had not been before. But that didn’t stop anyone from enjoying the rest of the great lineup on the last day of the mighty MDF.
Bright and early in the afternoon (although it seemed like night in the main room), hometown boys Visceral Disgorge began the festivities. They brought to mind the early works of death metal. Trauma and gore galore, this band encompassed the snarl inhaled low growls, din-destroying high tuned snare, gallop picking guitar done by Eric.
Bad acid Trip’s singer Dirk Rogers opening question to us was, “Is everyone drunk?,” and by just the sight of the crowd through the hours it was obvious that we all were. Crazed rock riffage and grindcore led this band to a energetic frenzy. Dirk was like Ian Curtis and Johnny Rotten; a twisted love child onstage. This band had true dynamic ranging from guttural blasts to hardcore breakdowns to strange, psychotic circus dementia. More...
The Maryland Deathfest organizers report that "Sonar will be re-opening before MDF, and technically they already have."
As previously reported, the venue of the Maryland Deathfest was up in the air when Baltimore's Sonar nightclub failed to renew their liquor license and closed its doors.
The organizers futher commented: "These last couple of days have been incredibly confusing and stressful, but we are currently back to the regularly scheduled program. And don't worry, beyond plan B is a plan C, because that's how we roll. See you in a couple of weeks."
As such, the set times that were previously announced should now hold.
Here's the updated flier: More...
