Following the 2015 album “Black Hole Gods,” California doom trio Cardinal Wyrm returns with new full-length release “Cast Away Souls,” to be released internationally by Svart Records on October 14th.
With a sound described as “dense and riff-laden” by Terrorizer and “theatrical and grandiose” by Decibel, Cardinal Wyrm’s latest full-length continues the band’s hypnotic wandering through the borderlands of reality and myth.
Taking further leaps with the style and songwriting, guitarist Nathan Verrill and vocalist/drummer Pranjal Tiwari are joined in this genre-bending release by new addition to the Cardinal Wyrm family Leila Abdul-Rauf (Vastum, Hammers of Misfortune, ex-Amber Asylum).
A gatefold and booklet of fantastical, full-color artwork by Kim Holm (Solstafir, Vreid) serves as the only map for listeners as they drift on a river of riffs.
