Boneworm – Boneworm

Boneworm – Boneworm
Self released – 2012
Doom, Metal, Sludge, Rock
Rated: ****

At one point during that unholy lost weekend in Reno we had to hitch a ride to the far side of town. Not because we needed to go there; but because we had to get out of the inner circle fast. For reasons best left unspoken. We had the good fortune or bad luck to be picked up by two freaks in a Camaro. So we felt right at home and nobody complained when we barked out the window and opened dangerous looking phials with weird viscose swirly stuff inside. Rest assured; the rest of the ride turned into a hazy rollercoaster full of bizarre adventures and encounters. But I won’t bore you with all the details and instead thrill you with something that might not even have anything to do with that mad weekend full of terror. This three-piece outfit from Portland, Oregon, goes by the name of Boneworm and is one hell of a creepy crawler. On their first self-titled album they produce three tracks that move in a steady march around a black bubbling cauldron. The procession is slow and steady and never speeds up or falters and only shows slight changes and progression. It’s refreshing to hear a band that refuses to go for the quick kill and just patiently devours you whole…
