“Lord Ov Thornes” is the debut album of King Ov Wyrms, recommended for fans of Morbid Angel, Bloodbath, Enthroned, Vader, Dark Funeral
King Ov Wyrms comes from the vision of Michael Sanchez (Pain Patterns, ex-Judicator) out of Tucson, Arizona. The project was formed in 2015 when Sanchez was intrigued to explore his more aggressive side of metal. He loves the music he’s been creating with his main band Pain Patterns, but felt it was time to act on his inner urges to fulfill his desire for a purely aggressive musical venture.
The project went through various lineup changes only to be consistently held together by Sanchez, which lead him to completely write and record all of the songs as a full lineup along with the vocals. Having studied classical music and jazz to a degree while growing up, these gave him the tools to write comfortably on his own even in the concept of metal music. The end result, five years in the making is debut full length “Lord Ov Thornes”. Featuring lyrical themes encompassing the occult and a deep love for Lovecraftian horror, the record is an abusive assault of aggressive music with elements of old school death intertwined with black metal set to be unleashed on November 20th.
Band founder Sanchez adds:
“King Ov Wyrms is such a massive grim beast of Blackened Death metal that I’ve been dying to bring forth to the world for years, to finally see this project come together even if it’s just being held together by myself at this point is just beyond fulfilling. Everything about this band has been just more or less a mere rumor amongst the southwestern metal scene until now, so many people would stop me at Pain Patterns and even Judicator shows and would ask me about this “new death metal project” I’ve been working on and such, but now I can finally present it on a grand scale and not just some burner CDs like I’ve done in the past of these scraped demos.
Lord Ov Thornes is an album that to me, attempts to bridge a gap between the earliest forms of death and black to a more modern approach of metal production, almost like taking Morbid Angel’s “Formulas Fatal To The Flesh” and mashing it with Sulphur Aeons “Gateway To The Antisphere”. These brutal compositions that have been in the works for several years are finally ready to surface from their grim depths and inspire a new wave of death metallers.”
