RockmusicRaider - Wormlight - Nightmother - Album Cover

Why is it that we always like to return to known values? Some of it is – I guess – the doubtful comfort of familiarity. Soundscapes that come with a set of rulez that were painted in hellish runes on blackened walls eons ago.

Visions of burning churches, sweaty halls filled with screaming fans that are egged on by hairy beasts with corpse paint on their faces. With rasped messages howled at them in often intelligible growls. All of that comes with that whiff of the unknown, hints of the underworld suddenly visible … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider - Wormlight - Wrath of the Wilds - Album Cover Let’s descend into the pit once again, shall we? And burn a little very black ink on that bloodied altar that eagerly awaits its next ritual.

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Wormlight - Bloodfields - Album CoverDo you feel anger today? And I don’t mean some weak frustration. I mean white-hot, seething anger?

Well, I do.

Then what better thing than to find a lava-drenched chunk of Melodic Black Metal to soothe it. Fight fire with fire in a sense, the kind of anger management every metal head can buy into wholeheartedly, right? And I found just the right medication in the 2016 re-release of Bloodfields, the 2nd EP of the Swedish Black Metal outfit Wormlight.

And why on earth are we featuring a re-release from last year? [...] Click to raid more!
