It changes your perspective on some things

Things about death metal mostly
were you at there at MDF3? When they slowed down that breakdown nearly like Corrupted's pace? they didn't do it on this one but still you hit the spot with your statement. that and the amazing riff on Planisphærium.
I was not at all sold on Wormed until I was there for that, then I was like ohhh ffffffffffffwhat was I thinking

That was a good MDF, mens

No, I think we're complaining about monotonous, predictable, one-trick pony vocals that take away more than they add.

Now, getting excited about super technical death metal with shitty vocals in 2011 -- there's something to be smug about.

Love this band. Did anything ever surface after that EP they dropped a year or so ago?

they have this video of the drummer playing new songs for the album




I haven't heard a thing about how far along they are though


SPOILERSPOILER_SHOW
I think that singer sounds more like the Predator than anyone else who does those vocals

How is this more brutal or different than Cryptopsy? I've never listened to Wormed before but from the few clips I just heard the riffs and drumming are totally in the same vein. I'll refrain from going on about the vocal style, I've never liked that type of vocal and still don't...

There's nuance whether or not you care to admit it... and even though this might just be studio trickery, this moment is special:

An instrumental version of this band would work fine for me. I don't think some dude shouting in a heartfelt way would serve the music. It's not like the vocals are overpowering in the mix, right? I'm totally cool stopping talking about this whenever... or am I?

there are loads more meter/tempo variations going on here

no guitar solos or "showy" guitar work in general

and if you don't get a very different overall aesthetic vibe from the two bands then I don't know what to tell you

all that is just how it's different from Cryptopsy (and from a lot of death metal) - I don't give a fuck if they're the brutallest band in the universe or anything... the thing you quoted me about the brutality was just a joke comment in response to copstache claiming he couldn't "see" the brutality

Man, I like the music a lot. There aren't many techy/rhythm-slaughtering bands that manage to maintain the kind of momentum Wormed does. I just have the same problem with them that I have with Inquisition and had with Demilich: clearly a ton of work has gone into making the music as unique and heavy as possible, but there doesn't seem to be any thought at all put into the vocals. The more I listen to any of those bands the less of an issue it becomes, but I still think it's stupid.

Regarding an instrumental version of this working, I have my doubts. People say that all the time about bands like this, but I think if you took out the vox on something like Wormed you'd be left with something even harder to relate to than it already is. The vox do add a bit of humanity to it. Maybe it's supposed to sound like an alien's clogged asshole, but it's always going to be some dude. But I really think the reason a lot of these bands get vocalists is because the average metalhead isn't interested in buying an instrumental dm record.

I'm with Lon on the Cryptopsy thing. "Geodesic Dome" is basically None So Vile played in three and a half minutes.

I do not see the Cryptopsy thing at alllll

They're both fast and play death metal, so there's that

Maybe if like you mean a less shitty latter-day Cryptopsy? Even so

Nah, you guys are just bonkers

OK, I won't argue at you any more about this one - once you put them in the same bin with Demilich I completely see where you're coming from. And that's cool. Even though I can love Vader's Litany with that techno bass drum, I know Mikehamster will never, ever get past it... and I won't argue at him either.

If we're going to be comparing to things, I think WORMED is most accurately a ridiculously primal version of Spawn of Possession... the guitar work is id'd out and so are the vocals. It clicks for me. And yeah if SoP had ultra-guttural inhaled spacepigfart vox it would be stupid. It's not like they're universally good vocals - I just like them a lot in context.

Overwrought compositions contrasted with sub-caveman textures, then finished off with extra-musical elements about inhuman science topics from the smallest to largest scales? Can't resist.

Like I said earlier I'm just basing my opinion on the two clips I heard here.
The song Undeciphering The Inquantificability has parts that sound totally like Cryptopsy circa And Then You'll Beg. Tunnel of Ions not so much...

for comparison...

but i like Demilich's vocals!

ok, not really but they're semi-appropriate for the music
