Wormed Posts “Computronium Pulsar Nanarchy” Music Video

The sci-fi technical death metal masters from Wormed have released a new video for the track “Computronium Pulsar Nanarchy.”

Regarding the video, Wormed comments: “Before this apocalyptic scenario took place, in the other arm of the galaxy, the Conektnity project foresaw it, activating the Neomorph Protocol, commonly called ‘The awakening of the one hundred Chryms.’ A cyborg army, saved for an event that would threat human existence. These powerful Chryms were designed to establish life in a safe planetary system. All woke up, all but one, Krighsu.”

Wormed Posts Two New Songs From “Krighsu” Album

The sci-fi technical death metal band Wormed just released two new tracks from forthcoming album “Krighsu.” The tracks, titled “The Singularitarianism” and “Eukaryotic Hex Swarm,” are available below.

Regarding the new tracks, Wormed comments: “Knowing that intergalactic exploration wouldn’t be possible without transcending into frightening Artificial Intelligence, they tried to avoid the disappearance of the last human link, desperately executing a powerful virus.

“Its purpose: the destruction of robots. However, they didn’t realize the serious mistake they made. The virus had an unexpected mutation, and millions of nanomachines scattered without control, building copies of themselves using all matter and energy available in the galaxy.”

Recorded at Sadman studios in Madrid, “Krighsu” will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on March 25th.
