Finnish Avant-garde metal band WYRMWOODS released a new single, “Year of Dearth.” The track is taken from the band’s upcoming fourth album, “No Sun Nor Moon,” which is set to be released on November 4th, 2022, by Inverse Records.
The band’s sole member Nuurag-Vaarn comments:
“Wyrmwoods’ fourth album, ‘No Sun Nor Moon,’ is a continuation of the last album’s progressive avant-garde metal in a more focused and polished package of nine tracks. There are plenty of the familiar ambient and progressive rock influences heard on the album, which can be heard for example with some mixed meter time signatures and more use of the saxophone in the tracks. There’s still plenty of room for more straight-forward and intense black metal parts on the album as well. The production is cleaner and less chaotic when comparing to the previous releases. There are also more death metal influences heard this time, most so on the single release ‘Year of Dearth,’ for example the vocals are now primarily low growls.”
