Wormed black metal side project Wrong releasing a new album (stream it)

by Doug Moore

Wrong, doing…uh…?

The Spanish technical death metal band Wormed released one of my favorite metal albums of 2013 in their wackadoo sophomore effort Exodromos. When I came across Wrong — a black metal side project featuring Wormed burp/squealer Phlegeton — I jumped at the chance to check out their sophomore album, the rather ESL-sounding Pessimistic Outcomes.

The album comes out on April 22 via Xtreem Music, and we just premiered a full stream of it over at Invisible Oranges today. Like Wormed, Wrong tend towards the theatrical, but that’s pretty much where the similarities end; Wrong play a restrained and decidedly morose version of BM that has little in common with Wormed’s off-the-wall insanity. From our IO writeup:

Phlegeton’s delivery in Wormed boils down to an array of squeals, burps, and chirps — it works great over technical death metal, but is almost singularly ill-suited to mopey black metal. He’s a talented vocalist and I expected him to modify his delivery, but perhaps not this much. The guttural component of his voice is almost completely absent here, replaced by a thoroughly effects-bathed range of washy sighs and shrieks that’s heavily reminiscent of Wrest’s delivery on the last couple of Leviathan records. His work here is a novel match for this otherwise conservative strain of black metal, and the album benefits considerably from it.
