From the first track Vermin to the final track Here and Beyond, Conquest Icon provides you with a furious, ripping, flesh shredding and neck snapping brand of death metal that you will not come out alive from once all is said and done.
Empire of the Worm is a true steamroller of death. Never does this release falter or cease as it storms forth with malevolence violence aiming to shred you limb from limb. From the drop of the first note you become under siege by a gritty and bloodied death machine.

Each of the ten offerings that rumble forth from the abyss are just as flesh tearing and life draining as the last making this entire release as deadly as you would imagine.
Gnarled and flesh gnashing, Empire of the Worm barrels forth terrorizing you at every single second of the way. There is no reprieve here from the tried and true onslaught of pure death metal.

Forever unrepentant and punishing, Empire of the Worm tramples over everyone and everything in its path leaving nothing but wreckage and mangled corpses in its wake.
Ever terrorizing and blood spilling, Empire of the Worm is a true death metal record through and through.

Conquest Icon offers up pure, grisly, malignant and unfiltered death metal that leaves your head hanging on by just a thread once the final track has concluded. Overall, Empire of the Worm is an excellent release, one that will stand among the best death metal releases this year.
