MetalBite Review by Adam M on 1/3/2017
Wormed go for a fast and visceral approach with Krighsu. There is a sense that the band wants to be as chaotic as possible and that is audible throughout the entirety of this disc. The speed of the music makes for an up and down recording. There are moments that are exciting and those that seem like they are simply excessive in nature.

The music is somewhat unfocused and performed with a dial on the speed at all times. This makes for an all over the place sort of approach to song-writing. While itís not as messy as early Origin, the style is not as cohesive as other death metal albums this year. One needs to look no further to the likes of Mithrasí On Strange Loops or even Obscuraís Akroasis for tighter sounding recordings. Even though those records seem tight enough, there are even more focused death metal recordings around, so this music here needs to converge to a more cohesive whole. There are still a number of good ideas, but they seem to be scattered all over the place and not consistent. The result is an album that has plenty of potential, but mostly sticks to an all the place approach that is very mediocre overall. Compared to the best death metal of the likes of Death, Carcass and others, it just doesnít measure up. Still, with the death metal offerings being slightly haphazard this year, there is room for this album to be placed among the others. It does have enough strong ideas and riffs on occasion to have a mild impact.

The music is generally played at a very frenzied level and when these moments connect, they run past at a very fast pace. Krighsu is a mildly enjoyable death metal recording that could easily use more focus.
