What Graceless Dawn is the forthcoming full-length from dark ethereal doom bringers Worm Ouroborous. Recorded and mixed at Oakland’s Earhammer Studios by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Pallbearer, Noothgrush), the stunning six-track offering will see its official unveiling on December 2nd, 2016 via Profound Lore Records.
Adds the band, “In many ways this album is darker and rawer than our previous two, and hope plays a smaller role. ‘(Was It) The Cruelest Thing’ is a love song to the memory of beauty when hope and light are extinguished. It’s the lie the heart manufactures in order to keep beating once all context is gone.”
WORM OUROBOROS formed in June 2007 by Lorraine Rath and Jessica Way. With both musicians already having experience within the Bay Area heavy music scene – Way was previously part of metal band World Eater and Rath being a part of the influential Amber Asylum lineup as well as being co-mastermind of The Gault – WORM OUROBOROS set out to create music which explores the lines between fragility and strength, darkness and light, harmony and discord. Drawing inspiration from many places, including metal, doom, folk, progressive, and dark ambient genres, WORM OUROBOROS creates its own space; a creeping, dark landscape full of murky dreams and emotions. The band would see the inclusion of drummer Aesop Dekker in 2010 who would replace original drummer Justin Green
