Worsen - 2014 - Blood

Worsen is a black metal band from Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. Blood is their debut EP. Worsen is a part of the AC//13 Collective and shares members with Young and in the Way, Ayr and Votnut. Worsen play a desolate, frozen brand of black metal as exemplified on Collect Their Skulls, Leave Their Bones, only occasionally allowing some melody to sneak in on Open Vein. Mortal Sin is a more typical straight forward black metal song, all shrieking and whirling spikes and closer and title track Blood wears you down underneath frigid, hypnotic riffs. If you like black metal, Worsen's Blood will serve well.
