In a surprise to no one, we here at Wormwood have spoken to some dark and nasty characters over the years. But this time we've really pushed things to the limit. I snagged an interview with Chicago's most misanthropic band, the nefarious LORD MANTIS! These dudes started out with bad intentions and have managed to get progressively more brutal with each release. That brings us to their newest "Death Mask", which boasts a cover that has offended even many death metal fans. How does a band get to be this negative? I ask guitarist KEN SORCERON all about it...if you've got guts enough for the answers, read them HERE!

It's always a happy occasion when we get to welcome a new member of the Wormcrew (especially since many seem unable to take this place for long) and this week I'd like to introduce you to MR. THERON MOORE, who does a great review of the new CORROSION OF CONFORMITY release which you can read below. This dude is a horror loving metal fiend like the rest of us and has a new novel "The Kill Sisters" on the way, so you know he fits right in. For now, at least...

And now let's jump right into the fetid swamp that is the Wormwood Torture Chamber...
