Wormwood are one of the leading bands on the Swedish metal scene and their newest offering Arkivet is out now.
The band follows up on the highly acclaimed Nattarvet, which had the band soaring to the national charts and nominated for several awards. Their third offering, Arkivet, follows on the heels of this success and is a conceptually themed album about humanity’s destructive force, the inability to adapt to our nature and our inevitable and well-deserved death. Alongside the album release, a cinematic music video was created. “The Archive” follows the desperation after an unprecedented catastrophe in Sweden. The first vinyl versions include a novel written by author Mikael Strömberg (in Swedish and English) and depicts this tragic incident and the aftermath. The vinyl edition comes as a double album in a beautifully embossed gatefold cover, and etched side 4 with the Plague Star emblem. The album was mixed and mastered the renowned pop/dance producer Jonathan Ojeda.
