Cardinal Wyrm

With a sound described as “dense and riff-laden” by Terrorizer and “theatrical and grandiose” by Decibel, Cardinal Wyrm is a trio from the San Francisco Bay Area that wanders through the borderlands of reality and myth. Rooted in doom metal but taking further leaps with style and songwriting, guitarist Nathan Verrill, vocalist/drummer Pranjal Tiwari and bassist / multi-instrumentalist Leila Abdul-Rauf (Vastum, Hammers of Misfortune, ex-Amber Asylum) create a uniquely epic sound that is both soaring yet introverted and desperate, journeying through dimensions within and beyond.
