U.S. black metal act Wormreich has announced that live guitarist Thorgrin has been added permanent to the fold.
Founder/guitarist Vulk stated: “Wormreich wishes to announce that beginning this week, Thorgrin (ex-Blood Stained Dusk, ex-Chaos Inception) will be joining Vulk and Wyvern on guitar. Thorgrin has taken to the stage with us live in the past, and will now be taking a position as a permanent member. Our lineup is now complete.”
Wormreich was formed in 2009 by guitarist/vocalist Vulk and joined by current and former members of Blood Stained Dusk, Ancient (Nor), and Hallows Eve, and despite tragedy and death, Wormreich has returned to unleash Satan’s will upon the Earth. Wormreich is an established touring band, currently signed to Moribund Records, which has a reputation for putting on air-tight and intense live performances, gaining them great respect and admiration within the extreme metal underground. Currently Wormreich is working on the next full-length album, to be emtitled “Vril: Elixir of Death and the Void”.
On the upcoming album Vulk reveals: “As of now, we are currently in the process of writing and recording our next full-length album, to be titled ‘Vril: Elixir of Death and the Void.’ We will also be putting out three split releases through various labels this year: a split 12? LP with Florida’s legendary Kult ov Azazel, a split 7? with Texas black/death titans Hod, and a split CD with North Carolina’s Vesterian and two other artists yet to be announced. More details will be released in due time. We also wish to announce that our first full-length album, 2011’s ‘Edictvm DCLXVI,’ will be reissued sometime this year through Black Plague Records.”
