Wormhog – Yellow Sea
Self released – 2020
Rock, Prog, Metal, Stoner, Proto
Rated: ****

Today the origin of the universe is explained by proposing a big bang, a single event that instantly brought into being all the matter from which everything and everyone are made. The ancient Greeks had a different idea. They said that it all started not with a bang, but with chaos. Was chaos a god? A divine being? A simple state of nothingness? Whatever it was, I don’t know, I wasn’t there. I was there however for another kind of big bang! For they burst forth from that ancient democracy called Greece and took the December Doom Charts by storm. We’re talking about four-piece Wormhog and their first self-released full-sized album Yellow Sea. Recalling the early metal years with ease and infusing it all with loads of proggy elements and a majestic groove; the eight tracks on Yellow Sea use the fuzz to melt form into their compositions filled with hardrock and stoner riffs; swirling melodies and churning guitar lines. Rich, varied and with megalithic grace the tracks all fuse together to become this one entangled feeling of: ‘this is as good as it gets’. And like all ancient Greek heroes they will have known, in their bones for the past five years as they were working on this album that it was destined for greatness. Wormhog is the new star in the heavy cosmos...
