Rounding Up Recent Releases From Wormhole Death Records.

A number of their bands have been covered here on Metal Saves in the past but you may not be too familiar with the name, but Wormhole Death Records are one of the underground's most hard-working and growing labels. They enjoyed a good year in 2019 and 2020 shows no signs of them letting up, if anything they are continuing to forge their path ahead with renewed vigor, adding exceptional new talent to their roster at a steady pace, who all, in turn, produce releases of equal quality.

A personal favorite from the label was May's release from The Outliers, the band's fourth record, Dissipating Eternity. An incredibly heavy, murky, and unyielding album from a severely underrated band who harness chaos and high energy and uses that to create their sound. Dissipating Eternity is a clear statement of intent from the band, having cut their teeth on the live circuit and sharing the stage with some absolutely huge names it's time for the wider scene to stand up and take notice and this is the album they are using to do just that. Filled with chunky riffs, blast beats, bone-jarring breakdowns and shredded vocal cords. The Outliers want your attention and you should damn well give it to them.

Dissipating Eternity is available now digitally

Sentencia are a bit of an underground death metal legend. Formed in Caracas, Venezuela back in 1988 with their first demo surfacing in 1991. By the time 1993 came around the band released their second demo called simply Silence using songs recorded the year before, the demo worked to encompass their bands sound and work up unto that point.

The second demo contained a track well known and much loved by the local scene, titled Racism popular for its unorthodox blending with Afro and Caribbean sounds.

By 1994, Sentencia released their third demo, recorded live, and evolved into a split demo with fellow death metallers, Extremaunción.

A fourth demo (yes fourth!) released in 1995 simply called Tape 95. Later that year, the band released their first self titled full length before suddenly splitting up in 1996.

They lived on as a cult underground band in their native Venezuelan metal culture but 25 years later they have returned via Wormhole Death to deliver their second studio album called Solve et Coagula.

Fourteen tracks of intense, old school death metal reminiscent of early Sepultura mixed with Decide, Solve et Coagula delivers quite the gut punch and has been widely met with excitement not only by those who remember the bands fleeting first run but by those who have heard the name but never, until now, had the chance to experience new music from them.

A band from that recently impressed here on Metal Saves, Shatter Brain (check our review here) have released a hilarious quarantine video for their track Lorem Ipsum which you can see for yourself below.

Lastly, to cap off this round-up, Bleed Someone Dry have released a lyric video for their track Mephistophelian taken from their album Unorthodox which is out now via Wormholedeath/The Orchard.

The band commented on the track stating, "The new single 'Mephistophelian' from our latest album Unorthodox deals with the profound sense of inadequacy in a role that the human being unceasingly seeks to find a place in the world. The individual is always committed to giving a rational sense to its existence, to trying to define its decisions and choices in a general context, in a world in which the individual will inevitably have to interact with."

So that's just a little taste of what Wormhole Death has to offer, if you like what you heard, be sure to check out all the bands above and send some love their way during these tough times. You can find out more about the label at their official site, where you can download a sampler.
