Following their critically acclaimed 2015 release Black Hole Gods, California doom trio Cardinal Wyrm return with their new full-length release Cast Away Souls, to be released internationally by Svart Records on October 14th. With a sound described as "dense and riff-laden" by Terrorizer and "theatrical and grandiose" by Decibel, Cardinal Wyrm's latest full-length continues the band’s hypnotic wandering through the borderlands of reality and myth. Taking further leaps with the band's style and songwriting, guitarist Nathan Verrill and vocalist/drummer Pranjal Tiwari are joined in this genre-bending release by new addition to the Cardinal Wyrm family, Leila Abdul-Rauf (Vastum, Hammers of Misfortune, ex-Amber Asylum). A gatefold and booklet of fantastical, full-color artwork by Kim Holm (Solstafir, Vreid) serves as the only map for listeners as they drift on a river of riffs towards the sonic islands of six epic, mesmeric tracks, on a journey through dimensions within and beyond.
