Wormlight are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album :Wrath Of The Wilds' which will be released in April by Black Lion Records.
Heavy yet melodic riffing starts off the album along with some black metal screams and death metal growls a few seconds later while the faster sections of t he songs also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to t hem and there are also a few tracks that are very long and epic in length as well as the music being very heavily rooted in the mid 90's Swedish style and on one of the tracks acoustic guitars, keyboards and spoken word parts are also introduced on the recording briefly and when melodic chants are utilized on a later track they give the music more of a ritualistic feeling.
Wormlight creates another recording that remains true to the raw and melodic black metal style from their previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Wormlight and if you are a fan of raw and melodic black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE Reptillian King" "On Tattered Wings" and "Feast Pf The Mountain Kin". 8 out of 10.
