EP Review: WORMLIGHT Bloodfields

Black Lion Productions
Wormlight is a 5-piece, Swedish melodic, black metal project based in UmeĆ„, Sweden. “Bloodfields” is their second 2016 EP release after “An Ancient Enemy”. A brief, melodic, instrumental introduction commences this release- preparing for the aural onslaught that is Wormlight. Harsh, brutal screams combined with distorted riffs and a technical yet melodic black metal feel are a consistent musical aspect throughout. A consistently musically tight approach combined with well-constructed lyrics ensure another aspect to be appreciated within this release. A dramatic and melodic feel utilized consistently amplifies the more technical aspects of Wormlight- ensuring a brutal, uncompromising and attention-grabbing approach to be admired. Continual shift of cadence and pitch allow the diversity of Wormlight to be appreciated while still remaining consistent to their relentlessly brutal sound. Incredibly tight and polished- the melodic aspects are balanced flawlessly with the brutal, aggressive attitude within this release. Melodic and brutal with a distinct, old-school black metal approach. -Sarah McKellar
