Simply flying under the name Worm, this black metal band is the work of a mysterious person named Fantomslaughter. Up until this point this person has released two demos with Evocation Of The Black Marsh is his debut full length record that is filled with eight tracks of murky and utterly sinister blackened metal. As a whole, Evocation Of The Black Marsh is a damning, blown out piece of soul crushing music that will have you coming back for as much filth as you possibly can handle.
After the near two minute ominous intro Altar Of Black Sludge, Worm doesn’t wait around to throw you straight into the abyss with him. Evocation Of The Black Marsh heads straight into the thick of the swamp with Winged Beast Of The Phantom Crypt that begins as a slow dirge toward your death that quickly picks up the pace providing you with a dissonant and furious sound that snaps your neck. From this track on you are treated to more of the same soul darkening and light banishing sound. Worm does a great job of mixing the tempo up throughout each track providing you with different looks and plenty of variety all throughout the entire record. More often than not you are treated to both; the trudging slower tempo as well as the skull blasting tempo that provides you with your fair share of whiplash.
With blown out riffs, hammering drums and howling vocals you are presented with one hellish and earth scorching record. This unsettling record holds you captive for forty plus minutes bombarding you with demonic and putrid tunes until you can see the light fading never to return. This foul eight track blackened abyss is something to behold as it provides you with nothing but some insane black metal for you to lose your life to.
Evocation Of The Black Marsh is a completely raw and unfiltered record that gifts you with a sound that sounds as though this record is buried in a crypt itself. Evocation Of The Black Marsh is a filthy and grime filled record brought to you by the harsh production. Worm follows in the footsteps of the black metal forefathers that came before, but only to a fault as this sound is his own. Along with the raw and unkempt production comes an atmosphere that hangs over you like poison fog, and not only that but this atmosphere is disconcerting and ominous.
Overall, Evocation Of The Black Marsh is a great black metal record. Evocation Of The Black Marsh has what you want there to be in a black metal record as it provides you with a raw and punishing sound as well as sinister atmosphere and most importantly killer songs.
