Sci-fi technical death metal masters WORMED have released two new tracks taken from their highly anticipated, forthcoming album ‘Krighsu’. The tracks titled “The Singularitarianism” and “Eukaryotic Hex Swarm” are streaming now at Revolver.
Regarding the new tracks, WORMED comments:
“Knowing that intergalactic exploration wouldn’t be possible without transcending into frightening Artificial Intelligence, they tried to avoid the disappearance of the last human link, desperately executing a powerful virus. Its purpose: the destruction of robots. However, they didn’t realize the serious mistake they made.
The virus had an unexpected mutation, and millions of nanomachines scattered without control, building copies of themselves using all matter and energy available in the galaxy.”
Recorded at Sadman studios in Madrid, ‘Krighsu’ will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on March 25. The album is available across several CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-shop. The band previously streamed the track “Pseudo Horizon”here.

What the press is saying about WORMED:
“Weird, adventurous modern death metal had a banner year in 2013. This is my favorite example. …genius in practice, Wormed use thrusters of pure shred to launch slam-happy brutal death metal through the techkinox wormhole and into the cosmos.” –One of Stereogum’s – 50 Best metal albums of 2013
“With swine-like growls and switchback riffs cutting razor-sharp corners like a Tron light cycle, WORMED’s “The Nonlocality Trilemma” is engineered to bludgeon you into multidimensional submission. …yet for all its disorientation, there’s something rational about the structure of it all. Wormed goes beyond: This music is alien, unknown.” – NPR
“…it’s pretty unassailable, if you’re a fan of savage blast beats, sci-fi riffing, and ultra-downtuned chugs that will make you want to punch holes in your living room floor. …heavy and hyper-aggressive, but still extremely technical and complex, music.” – Phil Freeman, Burning Ambulance.com
“Wormed’s Exodromos was an album that felt captivating. It’s bleak lyricism mixed with Dillinger Escape Plan soundscapes pulled together a mangled and manic experience.” – Metal Injection
“[WORMED] spends much of its discography unearthing lyrical themes of astronomy, astrophysics, biology and human evolution with an extremely deep and complex analysis.”– Westword
“Wormed are working feverishly to expand the genre’s borders. ” – Hank Shteamer, Noisey.com
