Florida's Worm have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for more of a blackened funeral doom/death metal style and this is a review of their 2022 ep "Bluenothing" which will b e released in October by 20 Buck Spin.
Ritualistic bells and water sounds start off the ep along with some clean playing a few seconds later before going into a heavier funeral doom metal direction. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style and most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Vocals are a mixture of black metal screams and death emtal growls while the atmospheric side of the music shows an influence of Disembowelment. Synths are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the music at times along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard.
Whispered vocals can also be heard briefly along with some clear vocals also being utilized on one of the songs as well as one track also introducing acoustic guitars onto the recording and when tremolo picking is utilized on the closing track they alos give the music more of a raw feleing. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Darkness and the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Worm and if you are a fan of blackened funeral doom metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bluenothing" and "Shadowside Kingdom". 8 out of 10.
