Insectile death metal outfit, Boreworm (ex-The Yellow Sign, ex-The Contortionist), have premiered the first single from their forthcoming Entomophobia EP. Tilted “Vile Husk”, the new track unleashes pummeling, rhythmically-jarring, venomous angular riffage, and virtuosic solo work across three minutes of mayhem. Listen to the track below.
Boreworm unleash cosmic horror on their sophomore EP, Entomophobia. Engineered and mixed by guitarist Mike Bielenda and mastered at The Pop Machine in Indianapolis by Wes Heaton, Entomophobia unleashes four tracks of blistering technicality and malevolent atmosphere that solidifies Boreworm’s place as one of extreme metal’s new acts to watch. The group effortlessly blends technical death metal virtuosity with disemboweling sludge and progressive splendour on this new, death-dealing release. Mike Bielenda’s (ex-The Yellow Sign) guitar playing conjures nightmarish, discordant riffs that intertwine with each other in serptentine fashions. Cody McCoy (?erná,Anagnorisis contributor) and Sam Fraser round out an impressive rhythm section with tumultuous percussion and subterranean bass lines. At the heart of this madness is vocalist Dave Hoffman (ex-The Contortionist), whose vile ululations propel the music further into dark territory. Guests include Rivers of Nihil’s Brody Uttley, who provides a solo on the EPs title track. Entomophobia is sure to win the hearts of fans of forward-thinking death metal everywhere.
Entomophobia will be released independently on November 19th through Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify and all other platforms worldwide. Digital pre-orders can be placed here and CD pre-order bundles can be found at this location.
Formed in 2013 by former The Yellow Sign bassist turned guitarist Michael Bielenda and Inspired by a grand, arching science fiction mythos and the oppressive atmosphere of cosmic horror, Boreworm paints an aggressive yet hauntingly melodic musical soundscape. The band weaves a concept album storyline through a modern death metal exoskeleton and since it’s inception has been growing and expanding on a fanbase of loyal listeners with self produced music releases and videos and, more recently with their inclusion as the only unsigned band to be a part of the seminal metal festival Summer Slaughter blazed a path of devastating live performances across the country in 2014. Persevering through strife and member changes the band holds strong to its unique apocalyptic vision and welcomed former The Contortionist vocalist and frontman David Hoffman earlier in the year. The band returns for the follow up to The Black Path EP with Entomophobia, showcasing their eclectic style and furious metallic delivery.
