SPIN009 WORMWOOD “STARVATION” CD
WORMWOOD originated in Lawrence, Kansas back in 1997. 10 years and a move to Seattle later â€œStarvationâ€, is WORMWOOD’s second and final full length. Building on the foundations laid out on 2000â€™s debut LP â€œRequiescatâ€, â€œStarvationâ€ is a swirling vortex of psychedelic panic, doom crusted metal and sombre minor key prog mania. Imagine â€œSouls At Zeroâ€ era Neurosis with the apocalypse turned inward, or Tarantula Hawk and Crash Worship on a black doom metal bender. Not surprisingly Billy Andersonâ€™s (Neurosis, Swans, Sleep) production signature graces â€œStarvationâ€, highlighting the double bass guitar technicality and sample-laden paranoia. WORMWOODâ€™s â€œStarvationâ€ is an album that must be digested over the course of multiple listens to fully comprehend everything going on in its vast, insular 70 minute-plus mental web.
