Singapore’s renowned grindcore outfit Wormrot have released a new video for their new single “Voiceless Choir”, taken from their upcoming album ‘Hiss’. “Voiceless Choir” slithers its way through multiple metal landscapes, further painting a picture of the boundary-pushing approach that Wormrot have taken to ‘Hiss’.
Guitarist Rasyid Juraimi, who composed the track and wrote the lyrics in partnership with vocalist Arif Rot, says: “Voiceless Choir” is our most dynamic song on the album, combining different styles and subgenres back-to-back. It’s one of the earliest songs we wrote, but it was only completed near the end of the whole writing process. It’s a song about betrayal, revenge and the satisfaction of ending the life of the one you trusted most.”
The new video reveals fearsome new performance footage of the band and combines it with an abridged version of the momentously cinematic ‘Revenge Trilogy’ video (which also featured the tracks “Grieve” and “Weeping Willow”). The ‘Revenge Trilogy’ was Wormrot’s first-ever narrative-style video, which took inspiration from Singapore’s favorite crime shows such as Triple 9 and Crimewatch, as well as paying tribute to Asian cinema cult classics like Female Prisoner Scorpion.
With new sounds and fresh textures, Wormrot are set to shake up the world of metal when ‘Hiss’ releases on 8 July.
Featuring stunningly detailed artwork from Jon Chan, ‘Hiss’ is due to be released on July 8th and is one of this year’s must-have titles for all fans of extreme music. Pre-order the album now on signed CD, limited edition vinyl and cassette tape here.
