Wormphlegm : In an Excruciating Way Infested with Vermin and Violated by Executioners Who Practise Incendiarism..

Straight from the deepest pits of hell, out of the gaping jaws of Lucifer himself, crawls a wretched duo of doomsters prepared to wreak havoc and anguish upon the unsuspecting underground... enter - Wormphlegm! With their 1-track demo, these guys from Finland have created one of the most extreme pieces of raw, über-grim Funeral Doom ever.

Throughout their claustrophobic, angst-ridden composition, Wormphlegm manage to conjure an impressive and convincing image of authentic agony. The tormented Black Metal-ish screams belong to the most extreme vocal performances a human being can possibly deliver – like shrill rasps of damnation they form a phantasmagoric cacophony with their guttural growled counterpart. Slow, monotone and of course crushing guitar work nourishes the atmosphere of impending doom and imminent torture. Ritualistic, almost trancelike, minimalistic drumming as well as occasional serene, near-melodic guitar parts only enhance the nightmare.

Wormphlegm draw the listener into an inevitable world of unknown horror and sheer inhuman pain. They drag you straight to the mountains of madness and leave your bloody, crushed body out for the vultures to feast upon. Fans of extreme Funeral Doom, Khanate, Burning Witch, yes even Grief should dare to take a peek at the secluded, otherwordly soundscapes of Wormphlegm. This demo tape seems to be a sacrifice to dark, forgotten and long dead gods, a slow stripping of flesh, a white hot needle right into your eyeball – true Torture Doom which flays the spirit and, strangely, leaves you craving for more...
