Wvrm Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

We're from Greenville, SC. We play Grindcore and the band was formed from the ashes of an old Death Metal band we used to play in.

2.So far you have released 2 albums, how would you describe the musical sound that is present on both of the recordings and also how do they differ from each other?

For both we wanted to go for a raw stripped down sound. I think we achieved that with both albums with Where All Light Dies being of somewhat higher quality production wise. 

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

The lyrics are mainly cathartic. A lot of it comes from personal experience and they're all written to cope with certain things.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Wvrm'/

We just wanted something that was one word and had a certain connotation. A Worm is one of the lowest life forms on the planet, a bottom feeder. It's dirty. And that's what we wanted. The spelling is from a Magic The Gathering card. 

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

I'll just say that all the shows we've played have been the best. We try to make our performance fast and energetic. Sort of trying to invoke the spirit of the music. We just kind of do whatever comes out.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

We mainly have small runs here and there. We have a few shows coming up that are posted on our Facebook. One with Oathbreaker and Cult Leader on  July 29th, which will be really great.

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

We've talked to a label or two in the past. We're actually about to start recording a new album. We'll put it out in the ether, if a label wants to pick it up, that's great. If not, that's fine too. 

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of grindcore?

It's been great. Way more than I ever expected.

9.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

You can expect a new record later this year. Our music is only going to get faster, heavier, and more frantic. You can count on that.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Just about anything can be an influence, but some of the bands would definitely be Rotten Sound, CTTTOAFF, Converge, Nails, Nasum, and a slew of others. I can say we're listening to all those bands on a regular basis and a lot of stuff that isn't heavy at all. I love Old School Country music actually.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

It really depends. We all have things we do outside the band. We all have jobs. I personally enjoy spending time with my dogs, watching dope anime, and working out. 

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
