King Ov Wyrms comes from Tucson, Arizona and with them, brings a wave of old school death metal, intertwined with black metal, an abusive assault of aggressive music exemplified in the new album “Lord Ov Thornes” arriving on November 20, 2020.
The latest single off this upcoming release is “Lechery”, the first song that Michael Sanchez wrote under the moniker King Ov Wyrms. Sanchez cites his inspiration that comes through in the upcoming offering:
“I’ve always been a big fan of old school death metal and black metal, the pure intensity and the power it holds has always grabbed my interest. A lot of influence I drew while writing this material came from the music I listened to as a teenager which was a lot of 80s thrash metal and death metal, the satanic and brooding content of black metal, and even a bit of tech-death simply because of just how overwhelming it could be at times.”
In a spell of writing, Sanchez was unsuccessful in finding a vocalist to fulfill the vision for the album, and this is the first time his vocals have been recorded. The result is a non- stop assault on the senses, no-frills, just a pure old school death metal onslaught.
The lyrical contents for the single changed about three times before Sanchez ended up deciding on just exploring the gluttonous side of sin and ultimately lechery.
Recommended for fans of Enthroned, Vader, and Dark Funeral, King Ov Wyrms will no doubt intrigue metal fans around the world with this debut.

King Ov Wyrms is homage to classic death and black metal acts of the late ’80s/early ’90s with a touch of modern aggression.
Formed in Tucson, AZ. King came from the want of a more aggressive act when the main band of Michael Sanchez, Pain Patterns, started taking its roots in early 2015. He loved the music he was creating but felt that the band couldn’t fulfill his desire for a purely aggressive musical venture.
The project went through many different lineup changes only to be consistently held together by Sanchez. Having studied classical music and jazz to a degree while growing up, it gave him the tools to write comfortably on his own even in the concept of metal music. He starts out with a basic riff or a small melody line off of a piano and just adds on and on until it manifests into some sort of abomination of sound.
In early 2020 upon Sanchez’s departure from the power metal act Judicator, he decided to pull King out of hiatus but only as a solo effort to produce a full-length album. Over the span of several months, Sanchez was able to completely record all of the songs previously written for King as a full lineup, this time all the music was performed and written solely by him.
King Ov Wyrms will release its debut album “Lord Ov Thornes” on November 20th, 2020, and it will feature lyrical themes encompassing the occult, and a deep love for Lovecraftian horror.
