The Richmond, Virginia-based space metal and psych-doom quartet BOOK OF WYRMS release a stunning new single today, “Spirit Drifter“, from their upcoming sophomore album.
Titled ‘Remythologizer‘, the band is currently at work recording the album, once again for Twin Earth Records, and a Summer 2019 release date is projected. Until then, the here and now “Spirit Drifter” reveals incredible growth in BOOK OF WYRMS’s overall songwriting. The song’s start begins with some solid doom-style riffs, but things quickly enter a more fuzz enriched, groove-oriented delivery of morphing tempos and intensities. A detour into some synth accompanied passages of cosmic jamming offset the track, as a vintage-contemporary rock feel in the music is righteous.
BOOK OF WYRMS‘ Sarah Moore Lindsey (vocals and synthesizer), Chris DeHaven (drums and percussion), Jay “Jake” Lindsey (bass and synthesizer), and guitarists Kyle Lewis and Ben Coudriet, give irrefutable evidence to support why they are rapidly rising through the ranks of the heavy rock underground.
