With the re-release of the critically acclaimed Ghostlands, WORMWOOD presents it in a newly refined artwork made by Mario Polzin. "Because we have changed the logo a while back we felt it would be dishonest to have the old one on this vinyl. So taken inspiration from the old art work and the new aesthetic of Nattarvet, this improved version of Ghostlands was made".
Some reviews of the album:
"This epic folk masterpiece is powered with such positive energy that easily bewitches you within such graceful haunting themes, one after the other! This is an extreme metal musical experience of which you need to be part to witness such timeless splendour!"
"Ghostlands: Wounds from a Bleeding Earth is an entire black metal record store in one album that masterfully caters for all niches within the sub-genre. This is not background music; this is an album that demands attention from the second it starts to the second it ends"
"Ghostlands moves with a ghostly smoothness that ebbs, flows, rises and falls with a mixture of beauty and malice that only impresses. Sweden continues to provide the backdrop to great metal. Long may it continue."
Ghostlands - Wounds From a Bleeding Earth
An esoteric journey through the wild landscapes of Scandinavia were the future and the past blends into an engrossing tale of life and death
01 Gjallarhornet
An instrumental song about the harbinger of death
02. The Universe is Dying
This is a homage to one of the greatest writers ever lived, Isaav Asimov. The song is about the end of time, the complete evaporation of the universe.
03. Under Hennes Vingslag (beneath the flapping of her wings)
In Her wake she leaves a trail of death and destruction. Who is she? A mysterious entity who punishes mankind.
04. Godless Serenade
A reminder of that we won't need any gods to appreciate nature. This is the godless north and we heed to nature. No man-made myths and lies.
05. Oceans
Leaving your home soil is never easy, but coming back to a changed landscape is much more difficult.
06. Silverdimmas Återsken - The silver fogs reflection
An enchanting and beautiful journey through a mist-draped lake and a beautiful sirens voice (Alexandra "Lalla" Moqvist)
07. Tidh ok Ödhe - Time and fate
Sung in old Swedish from the 1500-hundreds. A song about the tribulations of being alive and dead.
08. Beneath Raves and Bones
We are never forgotten for our bones will rest in timeless soil until we are unearthed by our offsprings.
09. The Windmill
The end of times is soon coming as we follow this man who lives alone in the land sanctuary of mankind, a windmill, as he watched the world end and people around him dying.
10. What We Lost in the Mist
Everyone is searching for something even though we don't know what it is. A misery-ridden song about the fragility of life.
11. The Boneless One
A frantic mantra to invoke something impossible to describe. An entity born from our fault and flesh.
12. To Worship
The final song is a song for the love and veneration we have for Scandinavia. It is not about to worship gods but to hold our nature to the highest standard and how we will one day die and become with the stars again.
BIOGRAPHY - Ghostlands:
WORMWOOD was forged in 2014 when a small group of friends decided to create something different. It started off as a Black'n'Roll band but something was missing. Shortly after its inception Nine joined the band along with J.Engström. With new fuel to the wintry machine they embarked on a journey through uncharted territories.
Their first release, The Void - Stories From the Whispering Well was a hit in the underground scene in Stockholm 2015, but it left them unsatisfied, so they went back to the drawing board after an European Tour.
...and so GHOSTLANDS was born. With newly found inspiration, WORMWOOD wanted to try something different. Leaving the raw rock'n roll black metal behind and focusing on something more atmospheric, yet still harsh and vicious. With 12 songs which differentiate a lot from eachother, there is a song for everyone here. From raw black metal (What We Lost in the Mist) to folky tones (Tidh ock Ödhe). GHOSTLANDS leaves no rocks unturned as they explore a plethora of emotions!
The Void: Stories from the Whispering Well (EP 2015)
Ghostlands: Wounds from a Bleeding Earth (Full-length 2017)
