Chant your song on northern glory…

It seems like a long week has passed for all of us in the Worm hole… don’t even ask Jim how buying a house is going, but through it all we have pulled it together for a good round of reviews AND a track premier from the new Arckanum will be airing next week.

Jim and I are proud to announce that we have added a new writer to the fold! We would like to introduce you to the talented Jake Moran. He is a fellow dweller of Northern Michigan, a friend of ours and into a lot of the same musics. For a deeper glimpse into where Jake is coming from, check out his blog Boreal Isle for his passionate critiquing style and obvious love for the metal world that we all inhabit. He’s a great guy and a perfect fit in moving forward with Worm Gear. We are thrilled to have him with us and we’re sure that you’ll all grow to appreciate his literary prose. He arrives at the Worm bunker this week with reviews for Battle Dagorath and Cardinal’s Folly…

So we grow in strength and in numbers, and are eager to strike back next week. Hopefully the Satan and Arckanum interviews will be arriving soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this weeks stream of thought and our exclusive stream of “Hatarnir” from Arckanum’s excellent 8th album, Fenris Kindir.

  1. Welcome Jake! Great to see another reviewer onboard. I was getting sick of these two yokes already, wink wink….I’ll be anxious to see your take on things. I like the Engram choice there my friend! Excellent album.

    Me listening to:

    Kingdom – Morbid Priest Supreme Blasphemy (the shit!)
    Hell United – Aura Damage
    PSY – Gentleman (tehehe)
    Canis Dirus – Anden Om Norr
    Coffins – Advance New Album Demo
    Ghoul – We Came of the Dead!!
    Nocte Obducta – Umbriel (this my friends is an amazing new very avant garde piece of Dark Progessive Black Metal. Imagine mixing the first Arcturus 7″ with Pink Floyd and add in a touch of Steve Wilson and Emperor. Trust me, it works!
    Portal – Seepia
    Surgeon – Fjords
    Owl – Owl
    De Lirium’s Order – Veniversum (i don’t like progressive and or tech death, but this has to be the most fun and well written one I have ever heard. I keep listening to it over and over)
    Verminous – Impious Sacrilege (new one is out and waiting!)
    Eagle Twin – The Unkindness of Crows (best guitar/bass sound ever!)
    Immolation – Unholy Cult
    Terra Tenebrosa – The Purging (get this album!!!!! )
    Time Ghoul – Vinlyl Demo release on Dark Descent (wwooowwww!)

  2. Welcome aboard Jake! I’m with you on An Empty Bliss Beyond This World, haunting stuff…

    Toxik – World Circus
    Toxik – Think This
    Sacred Reich – Ignorance
    Sadus – Illusions
    Sadus – Swallowed in Black
    Sadus – A Vision of Misery
    Coroner – Punishment for Decadence
    Flotsam & Jetsam – Doomsday for the Deceiver
    Flotsam & Jetsam – No Place for Disgrace

    Exodus – Pleasures of the Flesh
    Forbidden – Twisted into Form
    Angel Witch – Angel Witch

    Quite a lot of 80’s classics on the menu, good to still have these oldies around. \m/

  3. What a list! Obviously we shared the same brain in the ’80s, my friend. Not a bad album on here!!

  4. Hahaha I’m afraid in the 80’s my brain was even more juvenile than yours my friend; I’m 35 and so I was just a tad too late to really witness these classics first hand… My first major metal experience was Dynamo Open Air ’93 (on my 16th birthday!) and shortly after that Morbid Angel’s Covenant tour with Grave and Dismember. From there I went downhill (to hell!) fast…
    A friend of mine in those days introduced me to 80’s NWOBHM, thrash, early Priest, Metal Church, Sanctuary, the classics… He was a bit older than me and likely HE shared your brain in the 80’s!
    I love those albums with a passion though. Wish that I had been there back then with tight jeans, basketball sneakers and a fat moustache! As the the great Wino once sang: Born Too Late…

    Oh man… Two more words for you: Speed Kills! (III, up next on the turntable) \m/
