Wormwood are a band from Boston, Massachusetts that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Mooncurse" which will be released in October by Translation Loss Records.
Atmospheric soundscapes along some synths start off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic doom metal direction which also mixes in the heaviness of sludge while the vocals are angry sounding screams along with clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic fashion while the music also mixes in a great amount of stoner rock elements along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording. most of the tracks are log and epic in length and synths also return on some of the later tracks and a later song also adds in a small amount of clean guitars and psychedelic touches.
Wormwood plays a musical style that mixes stoner, sludge and doom metal together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Wormwood are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Undesirables" "Parasitic Twin" and "Passage Of Fire". 8 out of 10. .
