Some pretty savage blackened death metal here. Lord ov Thornes is one of those albums that starts at full speed and doesn't slow down much, if at all. Take 51 minutes of that and call me in the morning. The vocals are a mix of death growls and black screeches (the latter reminding me a bit of Cradle of Filth, without actually sounding like that—fear not). The screeches sometimes sound out of place, but the growls sound hollow and evil as hell and give a massive dark kick to the already punishing vibe of the music. This stuff sounds like fast, heavy and brutal Scandinavian bands such as Marduk, Dark Funeral and Setherial if they were to have a baby with Floridian death metal, and it's damn well done. The thunderous drums just pin you down to the floor with sheer speed and heaviness, the guitars are blazingly fast and there are a few surprising bits that make you take notice. If you're at all a fan of very fast and heavy black and death metal and have been looking for a new band that does it well, King of Wyrms just delivered the goods for you.
