Back in a greyish 2014, a new band emerged from a vision.
Guitarist Rydsheim and bass player Borka (both ex-Åskfödd) joined forces with the drummer Johtun. After setting down the main foundation of ideas for the band they recruited the singer Nine (Withershin) who had the ferociousness they were looking for. Guitarist Nox (Withershin, ex-Pray for Locust) later completed the lineup of WORMWOOD.
Together they proceeded to forge a unique sound that evolved into a mix of atmospheric and grim black metal with ancient Scandinavian melodies.
In 2015 WORMWOOD released the EP: “The Void – Stories From the Whispering Well”
A frantic year of gigs and a tour to promote the aforementioned EP went by. The time had come for WORMWOOD to finalize and record their full-length album.
With the skilled Sverker Widgren of Wing Studios at the wheel of production, the grand opus was completed and named: “Ghostlands – Wounds From a Bleeding Earth”
An album inspired by the unrelenting Scandinavian north, the vast and mystical space and old folk tales. An ethereal cascade perfectly blended together to form a unique soundscape.
Alongside working on the album WORMWOOD, together with director/editor Isak Skagerström (Sound & Vision Studio), released a highly successful music video: “Godless Serenade”
The video itself was inspired by man's inner trials and tribulations.
In the fall of 2016 WORMWOOD signed a deal with the Dutch label: Non Serviam Records.
Now is the time of WORMWOOD. “We are the wounds from a bleeding earth”
