Wormrot Premiere Three New Tracks Via A Cinematic Music Video


Singaporean grindcore band Wormrot have premiered their a trio new tracks online alongside the streaming debut of “Weeping Willow“. The below video for those songs is viewed as a cinematic trilogy of sorts (alongside the freshly premiered “Grieve” and “Voiceless Choir“) from the band’s forthcoming album “Hiss“, due out July 08th.

The group commented of “Weeping Willow“:

“‘Weeping Willow‘ tells the tale of a father who will do everything he can to protect his son, whether in this life or the next. The song introduces a new palette of sounds not often associated with grindcore, including nightmarish strings courtesy of 18-year old violinist Myra Choo, illustrating that Wormrot continue to push the boundaries of the genre with their most impressive offering to date.”

As for the video, the band’s guitarist Raysid commented:

“Combining three songs to tell a single continuous story, this trilogy portrays the unnamed protagonist’s vengeance on the corrupt cops who plotted the murder of her lover. We pay tribute to ’70s Japanese crime movies and two of Singapore’s own TV series ‘Triple 9‘ and ‘Crimewatch‘ which we grew up watching.”
