Intricate grindcore/death metal band ERNIA with two members of WORMED reveal details on new full length

WORMED220503

At Transcending Obscurity Records, we’re entering a period where grind is being celebrated and the best part about it is that all of the bands sound markedly different from each other. You have the twisted, unhinged kind of music from Morgue SupplierDefect Designer‘s wild, boisterous music which comes as no surprise considering they have two members of Diskord in their lineup, and then we have the Spanish grindcore sensation Erniawho have two members of Wormed and are playing a form of intricate, almost technical music. It will be topped off with the release of the Irish grindcore/death metal legends Abaddon Incarnate who seem to have perfected that style over the period of nearly three decades. You can listen to a couple of songs from Ernia on our channel (YouTube links are below) while the promo reaches your inbox via Haulix, just before the release goes up for preorder this Friday.

With two members of Wormed in their lineup, Spanish grindcore band Ernia have managed to perfect the sound on their sophomore album which is both refreshing and riveting. The music is just as colourful as their artwork, full of intricate bits and with every song offering something different without abandoning the core sound. There is much to delve into here and every listen only enriches your understanding of their delightfully spastic music. To that extent, it’s almost like a technical album with the difference being that their momentum remains unabated while they throw up so much at you, and being so diverse, it only ends up being an utterly fascinating experience which is extremely rare in a genre largely known for its one-dimensional cathartic expression. The songs are incredibly structured, full of unpredictable twists and turns, buildups and breakdowns, and it never seems like a chore to sit through it because everything flows remarkably well and it’s even so goddamn catchy. Indeed, Ernia have crafted a masterful album that offers so much and yet retains its spunk, vivacity and of course, the skull-splintering intensity essential for the style.
