News: Wormwitch Announce Split EP With Sadistic Ritual; Share New Video/Single, ‘Weapons Against Despair’

Canadian extreme metal legends Wormwitch have announced their upcoming split EP with Atlanta black thrashers Sadistic Ritual. The EP will be released by Boris Records around the end of this year. As an offering before the release, Wormwitch unveil their new single with a black and white video, “Weapons Against Despair.”

Guitarist Colby Hink talks about the split:

“‘Weapons Against Despair,’ and the rest of our side of the split was recorded partially off the floor at LRS Studios in Vancouver, with (vocalist/bassist) Robin (Harris) tracking his contributions at Basement Studios in Paris, France. We’ve been really working to bring our process in a more organic and live direction, playing as much as we can in a room together and sending the mixes through 1/4” tape before mastering.

“This track is indicative of the band’s direction both sonically and artistically. We want a no-frills, hardcore punk approach while still lifting heavy influence from the old masters of heavy metal—on this song most notably the earliest works of Emperor, Candlemass, and Metallica.”

Bloodblast Distro/Prosthetic Records will release the split digitally, and Boris Records will release it on CD and 12-inch. Preorder and other details will arrive soon. Wormwitch are already on the road for their three-week North American spring tour, which started on March 30 and will end on April 19. Wormwitch will be supporting on a few shows.
