Dark Black Metal Awaits With KING OV WYRMS’ Single “To March From Darkness”

The mournful melodies of Tucson, AZ’s King Of Wyrms return once again in a second album “The Womb Ov Borealis” coming out later this year. Back in 2020, their debut album “Lord Ov Thornes” was met with excellent reception for those who enjoy black and death metal, and this new album promises to be just as ferocious and dark as its predecessor while taking a divergent turn into the depths of their creativity. The second single “To March From Darkness'”, aims to introduce listeners to their new form, still the same duo studio project as before, but with fewer genre restrictions and without influences from outside sources, along with a bass guest Derrek Page. Vocalist/guitarist Michael Oneirous Sanchez explains their evolution:

“This single is a prime example of what we have done to evolve from our previous approach and sound that was found in Lord Ov Thornes. The contributions from both Ricky and Derrek really made this track a dominant force off of the album featuring some insane bass work and of course Ricky’s signature “no holds barred” drumming which really let me open up more as a guitarist and vocalist compared to previous efforts. Needless to say, the evolution leading to new members involved with this project really shows in the songwriting and how far we have come for this project.”

Oneirous goes on to say that his lyrics are inspired by numerous sources. A big fan of literature in many ways from fantasy to religious texts, to horror, etc. Anything and almost everything will be a good read for him. A lot of this album in particular circles around occult studies and his inspiration drawn from Lovecraftian lore.

Relentless and experimental, King Ov Wyrms continues to push the boundaries of black and death metal with “To March From Darkness”. Overall, this new album “The Womb Ov Borealis" is a massive step forward, and they have taken on a more diverse writing style and approach to the material. It is recommended for anyone looking for new music to sink their teeth into, as well as fans of Vader, Morbid Angel, and Dark Funeral.
