Staff review by

It seems as though the Northern Europeans have developed a strange taste for popping a few acid tabs before getting their kvlt and corpse paint on as of late. The UK's A Forest Of Stars, the likes of Finns Oranssi Pazuzu, Candy Cane, and Verge… and now we have a one man contribution to this growing (although still minor) psychedelic trend within black metal: Iceland's Wormlust, the creative vision of one H.V. Lyngdal (keep your panties on boys and girls, that's H.V. Lyngdal, not H.P. Lovecraft).

28.01.2013 The debut of Iceland's one-man black metal outfit isn't released on record until the Spring, but it can be streamed already via his bandcamp page. An amalgam of sprawling, cavernous avant-garde black metal and gloomy, spooky dark ambient, this is the first stellar release of the genre in 2013 and any fans of Mories' work (particularly De Magia Veterum and Cloak Of Altering) will surely find themselves at home with Wormlust.
