Psychedelic doom metallers Book of Wyrms have just released a new song, “Speedball Sorcerer.” The track, which has just been premiered by The Obelisk, is taken from Book of Wyrms’ upcoming third LP. ‘Occult New Age’ is out on May 7 2021 and is the band’s first album to be released on Desert Records.
Crammed with classic heavy riffs, prog rock synths, ethereal vocals, and a foreboding organ part, “Speedball Sorcerer” recalls 70s hard rock bands like Black Sabbath and Deep Purple as well as stoner and doom groups such as Orange Goblin and Kyuss.
The band commented: “We are stoked to let everyone hear the fuzzed out boogie of ‘Speedball Sorcerer’! This features our friend LJ Rafalko on organ and is about bees. Hope y’all dig.”

Formed in 2014, Book of Wyrms came together to forage strange ingredients for their sonic pot, balancing airy vocals over heavy sludge, cloaking progressive melodies in fuzz, and dropping surprise boogies under retrofuturist synths (people always ask if it’s a theremin). Thankfully, people dug it: 2017’s Sci-Fi/Fantasy was named one of the best debut albums on the popular website Doomcharts.
The upcoming Book of Wyrms album, ‘Occult New Age,’ will be released in various formats including vinyl, CD and digital on May 7 2021 and can be preordered here: https://bookofwyrms.bandcamp.com/
