Interviews: King Of Wyrms

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Black Metal band King Of Wyrms from the USA. Check out this band and follow them on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you plan it or come out just like that?

Oneirous: It wasn’t originally planned however we knew what direction we wanted to go. We knew we wanted something aggressive, something that would catch your attention with the name alone that would make someone look twice. We had two options we pitched for the name at first, Lord Ov Thornes and King Ov Worms. We went with the latter option due to the slanderous terminology towards Jesus Christ but we altered the spelling slightly to be more visually appealing.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Oneirous: Black metal and Death metal are both very close to me, I grew up immersed in both of them and I knew that’s what I wanted to do once I picked up my instrument. I didn’t want to limit our music however by just sticking to the merely “trve” Black metal aesthetics or the purely intense often predictable Death metal route so I worked for my hands at blending the two together largely inspired by the evolution of some of those classic Black metal bands adopting Death metal characteristics like Belphegor and Necrophobic.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Oneirous: Yes, myself and Ricky were both a part of two older bands in the Tucson metal scene. I was in the Prog Death band Pain Patterns and Ricky was in the Tech Deathcore group Evasion. Most of the time our groups were filling out bills together almost to the point where it was hard to find a show we both weren’t going to be at which led to a brotherly bond between us and sharing a studio together. Over time I got more interested in recording audio and I helped Evasion do pre-production for some of the albums they worked on which let me work one-on-one with Ricky, that was when I knew it would be a blessing to work with him and his talents.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Oneirous: My favorite group might be a bit of a curveball for fans but I think some of my vocal styles might be a dead giveaway but my favorite band is Opeth, regardless of what phase they are going through it's all been top-tier for me.

Ricky: Goatwhore

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Oneirous: There’s not really one source of inspiration for us, I think we just have an overflowing collective creative conscience. I’ll be reading books and just brewing ideas in my mind or Ricky will be at home running practice sessions on his kit letting me know of song structures he wants to experiment with.

6. Where was your last gig?

Well, King Ov Wyrms is merely a studio project at the moment, we are looking to recruit two members to help us create a full-performing lineup which is still a work in progress.

7. Where would you like to act?

Oneirous: In regards to performing, I think our foreign European audience is starting to be a lot more apparent than here at home in the States. If we had the capabilities it would be an honor to go overseas and perform for our fans.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Oneirous: I think it's safe to say we would wanna open up for some of our idols like Goatwhore, Cannibal Corpse, and Vader which would be a staked bill!

9. Whom not?

Oneirous: I wouldn’t think we would push away any opportunity to perform with anyone off of name alone, there would have to be some serious public issues for someone to push us away respectfully.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Oneirous: I definitely still have stage fright to this day, it doesn’t really ever go away but you learn to manage it. For myself, a big thing was understanding how hard it really is to see off of a lit-up metal stage so it breaks a lot of the eye contact for myself which makes it a lot more bearable except for the first couple rows of people. That or maybe I need to get my eyes checked again haha

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Ricky: Early in my drumming, I took a lot of inspiration from the Black Dahlia murder mostly Shannon Lucas, and Nicholas Barker especially his performance on Dimmu Borgir's Death cult Armageddon. Zac Simmons of Goatwhore, Derek Roddy, Paul Mazerkowiz prob spelled that wrong.

Oneirous: Like I said before I am a big Opeth fan so it’s always made me attempt to bring in other genres into my music. Ihsahn, Steven Wilson, Vader, Agalloch, Belphegor, and 1349 have also been very inspiring artists I’m my music development.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

Ricky: In a previous band, I was in I had a fan contact our singer through our band camp site for a pair of my socks and underwear that I had worn during a show, and believe me I sweat a lot when I play live you don't want those! 

13. What do you think of your fans?

Oneirous: The few I’ve met in person have been very kind and super supportive, but the larger portion that I’ve talked to through the internet is just the utmost genuinely kind people and it really makes me feel like the work we do is worth it just knowing there are people out there that appreciate what we do. 

14. What do you think of our site?

Ricky: Your website is great it looks like you support a lot of underground unknown bands which really helps a lot of bands and music creators get their material out and get fans to come and check out our interviews and websites. 

15. Something to add?

Oneirous: Thank you to our friends and fans for the support, thank you guys for having us be a part of this interview, and of course everyone involved behind the scenes with making our new album “The Womb Ov Borealis”

Ricky: Don't sweat the petty stuff but pet the sweaty stuff!
