"It's an honour for us to announce our cooperation with Wormwood! Must
say I was completely blown away as I first heard the preview for "Ghostlands" the
bands debut full length album, this was probably the best folk black metal I
heard in years! Impressively strong and epic black metal themes, addictive
melodic folk and atmospheric elements make this album become a work of pure
metal art! Wormwood are the new blood that runs over Swedish heathen
lands, a rising
power with a prosperous future ahead!"
Wormwood comments on this news:" As we want to spread our music
and name all across the world it only seems fitting to join the spearhead in the
front line with NeKronos Promotion. We are sure that we can grow ever
bigger as a band with this eminent help.

In 2014 when Rydsheim, Jothun and Borka wanted to create
Rydsheim and Borka was in a band together called ÅSKFÖDD
which had gathered notoriety in the folk scene around Stockholm, Sweden.
Jothun had been in various bands before but nothing which caught his
interest. The trio started to play black'n roll but lacked a vocalist and a
steady second guitarist. After a few months Nine (WITHERSHIN) and Nox
(WITHERSHIN, PRAY FOR LOCUST, RIKET) joined and the journey began to take
Together they formed the band WORMWOOD and released their debut EP in 2015,
The Void – Stories From the Whispering Well.
A record where they mixed folk, black and rock'n roll. Lyrics based on old
Scandinavian folk tales.
With a sense of unfulfillment they began to reshape their sound. After a
toilsome year of live performances and creating new music, all of the songs
where done and the next step was to record it.
Sverker Widgren (DEMONICAL, DIABOLICAL) was the first choice, so
WORMWOOD entered Wing Studios to record Ghostlands – Wounds From a
Bleeding Earth (release date in spring 2017). The final product was an
ethereal mix of genres, black metal, folk, rock. All this was combined in an
The album was recorded and WORMWOOD released their music video,
Godless Serenade, which was shot up in the high north of Sweden, far above
the arctic circle. Some of the shot was also done outside of Stockholm, where
the director Isak Skagerström lives. The music video was a success and
the hunt for a label ensued. After a while, a perfect home was found;
Records. They had the perfect vision for WORMWOOD. Fruitful years
are surely to come.
2017 will be the year of WORMWOOD. Be a part of this monumental journey.
We have such sights to show the world.
