Every day, blows by in a world of corrupt addiction …

The extreme busyness of Bindrune has done much to stymie the flow of Worm Gear words to you, our dear readers, but though we must necessarily divert after-day-job attentions elsewhere time to time, we shall always return to the discussion of the extreme sounds that motivate us all. That said, let us skip past any rambling long preamble and get right to the reviews. Please post your playlists, and also let us know what experiences you’ve been up to in the past month of our absence!

  1. Welcome back Gents…

    Battleroar – Blood of Legends
    Desecresy – Chasmic Transcendence
    Ironsword – Overlords of Chaos
    Integrity – Humanity is the Devil

    Marty – A Flame to the Ground Beneath or Awakening the World? I know awhile back Mr. Zahler said he preferred A Flame…but although I find it an amazing release, I probably still prefer the debut if I had to pick.

  2. Greetings to all!

    Summer falls to Autumn weeping … and my daily pursuits
    follow suit. Fall always encourages me to get ‘serious’.
    A time when older generations bent to the necessity of
    shoring up for the coming winter. I still do it. It is
    in my blood. It feels real. Nothing smells sweeter than
    the woodsmoke rising from the timber you chopped yourself.
    I have been harvesting, and preparing for the coming hunt.
    I have finished forging a new hunting knife, and look
    forward to testing it against my grandfather’s trusty
    blade this coming season.
    Fishing season now, so that means plenty of filleting and
    drying. Apples by the bushel. Plenty of drying, canning,
    and homemade hard CIDER!!!

    Now to the life’s blood that fuels these seasonal endeavors:

    The stand-off, until 3:05 when the gauntlet drops. The
    enemy is triumphantly sliced to shreds at 4:06. Nice song
    from their most recent split.

    Old School Finland
    I’ve been eating this for breakfast.
    The opening scream, and at 1:34 hearkens to the likes of
    Silenius and his maniacal invocations in years past.

    Johnny Touch – Inner City Wolves
    I really appreciate that the vocalist doesn’t sound
    ridiculous or try to do ‘too much’ … as is often the
    case with this style, in my opinion. He knows what he can
    do, and simply compliments the energetic riffing without
    trying to be a showman.

    Totale Vernichtung – Ritualmordlegenden
    Austrian madmen offer an even-keel dose of teutonic might.

    Other albums over the last day or so:
    Horrendous – Ecdysis
    Diskord – Oscillations
    Falls of Rauros – Believe In No Coming Shore
    Cardinal’s Folly – Our Cult Continues

    Agreed, Cirkus-Lizard, that Desecresy album is a winner.

    To everyone else …
    I know you are out there, lurking … share your
    playlists, and shower us with personal gems. Hail to all

  3. Rytkonen and others,

    That Johnny Touch sounds cool and I ordered Horrendous, whose first lp was strong.

    A couple of things…
    I just finished week 2 (of 4) of shooting my movie—

    and my new book, Mean Business on North Ganson Street came out.

    Manilla Road Open the Gates
    TNT Knights of the new Thunder
    Vomitous Empires of Great Enslavement
    Jackie Mclean Destination Out
    Soils of Fate Thin the Herd
    Y & T Mean Streak
    Abominable Putridity both albums
    Manowar Lord of Steel
    Journey Look into the Future (perhaps the #1 best drum performance of the 1970s, back when Journey was a proggy jam band and had the master, Aynsley Dunbar)

  4. Thank you for the playlist, Unaerth. The three with embedded videos were all new to me and hit me very well.

    Also third the Desecresy mention.

  5. You are welcome, Ray. I am glad to have been able to help out a bit. That is always what is so great about people sharing their playlists, there is bound to be something new or interesting to experience. It has been a little quiet around here over the last few months, but no worries, the Worm Lords are simply off terrorizing other areas of the underground. Feel free to check back and/or contribute whenever you find the time. Your contributions are appreciated. What have you been spinning lately … towards the end of the year? What rings true?

  6. Not sure any one lurking around here any more, but Happy New Year to all. Any chance for a few top 10 lists from the Worm?

  7. Indeed there is! Hope to have something up late next week, for my own choices anyway. Bindrune/Eihwaz business has taken precedence, but I’ve been itching to get my own list up ..

  8. not a top 10 but a recent playlist:
    Autopsy – Tourniquets…
    Darkthrone – Soulside Journey
    Desecresy – Chasmic Transcendence
    Emptiness – Nothing But the Whole
    Rage Nucleaire – Black Storm of Violence
    Rienaus – Aamutahdelle
    Vader – Tibi Et Igni
    Witchblood – Hail to Lyderhorn

  9. Thanks for the playlist, Roy. Emptiness seems to be getting mentioned a lot. I have yet to check it out. I am also unfamiliar with the Rage Nucleaire, so we’ll see.
    That Rienaus album has been on regular rotation for me as well. I have always had a major soft spot for Finnish bm.
    If you haven’t already, check out the stuff that has been released by Sielunvihollinen.
    Others I have been spinning lately:
    Ruumisvaunut – Kuollut
    Mortify – The Way of All Flesh
    Skapt av Skog – ST
    Have to run for now, so no time for links at the moment.

  10. So is the site dead? If the folks are raptured in label biz, i say kill it, don’t let it linger.

  11. I enjoyed the playlist again, Unaerth, Mortify and Ruumisvaunut in particular. Nothing else too exciting and new here lately:
    Asphyx – The Rack
    Marduk – Frontschwein

  12. Yeah, that Ruumisvaunut always hit the spot for me. Thanks again, Roy, for mentioning Emptiness, it caused me to finally check them out. Oblivion is rather solid, and I look forward to giving their newest some attention too. I must admit that I have never been a huge Marduk fan, even back in the day. However, I was always drawn to the awesome bass work of B War … especially on Heaven Shall Burn …
    I guess, when it came to Sweden, I was more enthralled with Algaion, Sorhin, Arckanum, Ophthalamia, etc … rather than Marduk, Dark Funeral, and so on, that got a lot of attention.
    A few things I have been spinning and enjoying lately:

    Vultur – Ogu Liau
    Sardinian crazies … put together a nice album. I really like their energy; and the great bass presence/playing keeps the full-tilt style powerful and interesting.

    Wschod – Oddalenie
    Unique band, imo. What a great stomper at 1:08

    Also check the debut from Abyssgale – Hegemon
    No wheels reinvented, but the conviction draws me to it. There is something ‘extra’ to the vocals that is quite to my liking, and I think they elevate the material for me.

    I have also been revisiting Vokodlok and their Unchain the Wolf release. I spun it a LOT years ago when I picked it up initially. Even to this day, it simply resonates with me … love it! Romanian werewolves!

    I’ve been listening to a lot of other sub-genres too (mainly doom and epic heavy), but will leave that for another round.
    Hails to all of you still out there!

  13. Just when I think it’s time to visit the almighty Worm again, see what’s going on in these far corners of the underworld, I find you’re all in hibernation? Wassup dear sirs?

  14. Sorry for the long quietude … we will be back in force next week!

  15. Sure we’ve been dormant here, but still lot’s of material to read in our absence. We’re back. Patience.
