Since its formation in 2015 in Baltimore, MD, Wormhole has been spearheading the tech slam movement, introducing strong melodies, technical prowess, and virtuosity to hard-hitting brutal death metal. In October 2015, guitarists Sanil Kumar and Sanjay Kumar were joined by vocalists Duncan Bentley of Vulvodynia and Calum Forrest of Engorging the Autopsy, and one year later the band released their aptly-titled debut album Genesis on Lacerated Enemy Records.
With influences drawn from Necrophagist, Abominable Putridity, and Beyond Creation, the band has been described as “monumental” and“monstrous,” with “ferocious slams” that “bludgeon listeners senseless.” In July 2017, they were joined by drummer Matt Tillett, and in December, Wormhole made their incendiary live debut. In 2018, Wormhole partnered with Vulvodynia on a tour of Europe and Cognitive in Canada.
In 2019 joined the infamous yearly Tech Trek tour with death metal giants Archspire, Inferi, and Virvum to bring their special brand of technical death metal to the States. Now featuring seasoned bassist Basil Chiasson and the enthralling Ansh Goswami of NoiSays on vocals, and with a live line-up secured and a new album, Wormhole is bridging the gap between brutality and virtuosity and pushing the boundaries of what a death metal band can be.
