Exodromos" is overall a very well put-together and potent death metal release. The musicianship is performed greatly, the production is also done nicely, and the songs themselves are powerfully constructed and executed. With how well the album turned out, it is recommended for fans of technical and brutal death metal. Along with that, Wormed proves to be a band that isn't to be taken very lightly. Actually they were what got me into the.
Wormed are back with an album that treats us to yet another lesson in what is violent and appealing. The price to pay is obviously a certain reiterate devotion to the stereotypes of a genre which, in its most basic form, has already expressed whatever it could manage to communicate with bands like Cryptopsy, Suffocation and, well, Wormed, to name but just a few. If the album title Exodromos ( the outward path from a Greek tomb if my high school memories serve me right) is an elegant – albeit rather brief – cornerstone in metal composition . The sci-fi themed and aptly titled Exodromos is an album whose very essence is closer to Voivod (just slow down Techkinox Wormhole and you will know what I mean) than it is to grindcore or a band like Nile, to name just a couple of names whose musical principles neighbor the apparent savageness of such a noble genre. As far as technical death metal is concerned, I seriously doubt there will be anything better than this in 2013.
Label: Willowtip – WT-115. Mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios (Helsinki) on November 2012.
Release date: March 26th, 2013.
Album (Studio full-length). Technical Death Metal, Brutal Death Metal. A music video was made for the song "Tautochrone". Jewelcase CD. Catalogue WT-115. 5). Davilian (85/100). Kildneybean (90/100).
All in all, this is probably not an album that will convert people into fans of the brutal death metal genre because it still suffers issues with variation and ecletic song structures that could put off many listeners. However, it does manage to provide a set of sounds that expand upon the usual template of the genre, and as a result it's likely to be the strongest album in the genre this year. Recommended tracks: Tautochrone Xenoverse Discharger Multivectorial Aeionization.
