Wormwitch Announce Split with Sadistic Ritual and Release Video


Wormwitch just announced a forthcoming split EP with Sadistic Ritual, out via Bloodblast Distro/Prosthetic Records and Boris Records sometime this year. They also dropped a video for their new track “Weapons Against Despair.”

The split will contain three tracks from Wormwitch, so we guess that Sadistic Ritual will probably be contributing the same number of songs, or similar.

Wormwitch Guitarist Colby Hink says:

“‘Weapons Against Despair,’ and the rest of our side of the split was recorded partially off the floor at LRS Studios in Vancouver, with (vocalist/bassist) Robin (Harris) tracking his contributions at Basement Studios in Paris, France. We’ve been really working to bring our process in a more organic and live direction, playing as much as we can in a room together and sending the mixes through quarter-inch tape before mastering. This track is indicative of the band’s direction both sonically and artistically. We want a no-frills, hardcore punk approach while still lifting heavy influence from the old masters of heavy metal—on this song most notably the earliest works of Emperor, Candlemass, and Metallica.”

Wormwitch are also hitting the road next week for a North American Spring tour that runs through April 19.
