Alrihkh Can’t say I’m in love with this album, to be honest. It’s okay, I don’t mind a few of the songs, but for me there’s no standouts. The vocals are far too withdrawn & unclear for my taste. I’ll leave it at that. Took a spontaneous chance on a bargain. Favorite track: Hollergoblin.

trushuks I love how it's rock and is full with witchy vibes and sounds like 70's rock. At 1st bought just digital album although I wanted to buy it in vinyl. Fixed it now! Way too many good songs to choose just one of them, album is full of them. Favorite track: Hollergoblin.

1.
Understand the way it is I can’t feel a thing again Yesterday I wanted to die And today I feel I just might I looked up between the trees Something brought me to my knees In my hand a metal blade My greatest triumph would be made CHORUS: I thought I’d never see the light alive Sunken down to my spiritual hive Emerging from the tallest weeds Running with countless majestic steeds
2.
A simple setup Organic and lights A couple spells To grow it right One in a million Genetics of fire A metamorphosis Begins to transpire It just keeps on growing With different elements It learns to feed itself Magic makes a difference Pollution helps Is it just me Or did it move? As if it’s reaching For the moon? It just keeps on growing CHORUS: While wasting away It feeds on its own decay Leaves of dismay I think we’re its prey Flower looks like blood Still in the vein Local flora dried up Fauna drained Nothing’s safe In the day or dark Like a neverending Funeral march It just keeps on growing CHORUS

Hollergoblin 08:28
Up to the mouth of the holler no one can creep Six of seven sides are much too steep CHORUS: We’d better go We shouldn’t be here Get out Psychotropic guides peer out from dense trees Existing with or without your belief
5.
Keinehora 05:01
In case of gloating Pierce a lemon with iron nails In the gloaming, Shadow of the mind Gaze of envy forecasts negative energy To ward off evil, do the following: Precious stone between eyes Spitting thrice on your fingers Spot of dirt on your forehead Superstition or lies? CHORUS: I don’t think you should say that You never know who could hear you (x2) Obsessed with compulsion to expel the evil eye You develop a notion: Did I overdo it again? Whatever makes you hopeless, Aim for smallest modesty Imagine the danger of seeing positively You’d hate to lose it all CHORUS
6.
Praying on their knees in a temple built by bees Collecting grains of life for their holy queen Power made by patterns only they can know Kill the nonbelievers with the harvest that they sow Oh baby, when you scream Well, maybe, you’ll see what I mean Chaos magic Meta synaptic Oh baby, when you scream Well, maybe Forced into robot geometry, the apis finds its key. Secreting scents of love, the hive’s ready to break free. Chaos magic Meta synaptic Oh baby, when you scream, Well, maybe, you’ll see what I mean
7.
It seems so serene Eastern winds approaching from the scene In the midst of darkness, it seems so serene Looking up and looking out the door It seems so serene With his hands he motioned to the sky And with this a flock of birds flew by Then they nestled with the beasts of prey CHORUS: Summoning the earth and seas And the air of the breeze Is it cold? Is it me?
8.
Practicing all his moves, Hanging upside down, Sucking acorn juice From ones he found on the ground CHORUS: Since he lost his mind, he found his way – yeah His castle up above, Jagged edges that seem to loom Cursed organs sound out, Sign and seal your doom CHORUS

about

Occult New Age is Book of Wyrms at their fastest, slowest, loudest, and weirdest.

For fans of Hawkwind, Blood Ceremony, Elder, Samsara Blues Experiment, Black Angels, the Sword.

Book of Wyrms is a four-piece heavy psych band who came together over their mutual adoration of Hawkwind and ZZ Top and put out a demo in early 2015. It got some positive attention and helped them find their record label for their first two records, Twin Earth Records.

From the beginning, the band foraged strange ingredients for their sonic pot, balancing airy vocals over heavy sludge, cloaking progressive melodies in fuzz, and dropping surprise boogies under retrofuturist synths (people always ask if it's a theremin). Thankfully, people dug it: 2017's Sci-Fi/Fantasy was named one of the best debut albums on the popular website Doomcharts.

The Chicago Reader said 2019's Remythologizer "immediately establishes a welcome atmosphere: dark, doomy, and highly comforting to anyone raised on a diet of D&D, 70s heavy rock, and ditchweed." Surprisingly, with songs inhabited by characters like the Undead Pegasus, kids dig them too!

Whenever they could, the band packed into their shiny starcraft to play dive bars and doom fests from New England to Chicago to Texas, leaving a trail of freaked-out squares and demolished tacos in their wake.

Their third record, Occult New Age, is set to be released on Desert Records in May, 2021. Recording for the first time as a four-piece gave the band space to stretch out a little bit and fill the spectrum with big textures and proggy riffs, but their years playing together give them focus to keep things tight and scatter hooks among the chaos.
