Wormlight are a band from Sweden that plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Bloodfields" which will be re-issued in December of 2016 by Black Lion Productions.
A very heavy sound starts off the ep along with some blast beats, death metal growls and black metal screams a few seconds later and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic Swedish style and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the faster sections of the songs bring in single note tremolo picking which also gives the music more of a raw feeling and synths are also added onto a couple of songs while the main focus remains more on a heavier and melodic style and on one of the tracks melodic chants can be heard in the background.
Wormlight plays a style of black metal that is very aggressive and melodic in the Swedish tradition, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark themes with a touch of Nordic Mythology.
In my opinion Wormlight are a very great sounding fast, aggressive and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pitch Black Hatred" and "The Bloodfields". 8 out of 10.
