Blackened speed metal entity WORMWITCH will unleash their eponymous fourth studio album on July 26, 2024 via Profound Lore Records! The Canadian horde sets out to combine a melodic blackened death assault with the ferocity and attitude of crust punk and classic rock and roll, jettisoning the burdens of ceremony and pomp that dominate the genre today. To celebrate this revelation, WORMWITCH is now unveiling the first single from the offering, "The Helm And The Bow", which features guest vocals from KVELERTAK's Erlend Hjelvik. The track is now streaming BELOW.

WORMWITCH comments, "We've been looking forward to today... we finally get to start stringing out these new tracks. This one is one of my favourite's from the album, and I'm not just saying that. I won't tell you what it's about because real ones will know. We got some vocal contributions from our buddy Erlend who absolutely nailed it, can't thank him enough for lending us his voice."

The cover artwork for WORMWITCH's eponymous record was created by Abomination Hammer and can be found below along with the tracklist.

Tracklisting:

  • "Fugitive Serpent"
  • "Envenomed"
  • "The Helm And The Bow"
  • "Inner War"
  • "Godmaegen"
  • "Salamander"
  • "Wormsblood Necromancy"
  • "Bright And Poisonous"
  • "Draconick Sorcerous Canadian Witchknights"
Like black wings from an obsidian sky, WORMWITCH descended from the darkness in 2015, somewhere upon the rain-soaked woodlands of coastal British Columbia. Animated from the bones of several local punk and metal bands, the new entity set out to combine a melodic blackened death assault with the ferocity and attitude of crust punk and classic rock and roll, jettisoning the burdens of ceremony and pomp that dominate the genre today.

WORMWITCH released their first demo, The Long Defeat in 2015, and shortly after signed to Prosthetic Records, under whom they released Strike Mortal Soil (2017), Heaven That Dwells Within (2019), and Wolf Hex (2021). During that time the band toured with the likes of The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Midnight, Necrot, Uada, Bewitcher, and many others, earning themselves a dedicated cult following and international critical praise. In 2022, WORMWITCH struck out to independently release a string of singles and embark upon several tours of North America. After a busy festival season, 2024 saw the release of a six-song split with Atlanta black-thrashers Sadistic Ritual.

Now, with blades meticulously honed and tempered under the light of a feral Canadian moon, WORMWITCH emerges once more to offer their fourth full length record. Simply self-titled, Wormwitch is a statement of a band coming into it's own - a revelrous celebration of devilish speed, searing melody and diabolical intensity.
