The release of the upcoming Wormwood album was delayed. Due to the spring’s problems in the Suez Canal and Covid-19, Wormwood unfortunately had to announce that the ‘Arkivet’ release was postponed. But today their new album ‘Arkivet’ will be released finally.
Wormwood released a video for ‘The Gentle Touch of Humanity’.
The video is 16+ only, so you might have to take some actions to verify that.
They have released a video for ‘The Archive’.
The plot in the music video is based on the book “The Archive” by the Swedish author Mikael Strömberg. A book which comes in a 32 page 12” booklet with the first edition of the vinyl versions of Wormwood’s upcoming album “Arkivet”. The book depicts what happens in the music video and what happens afterwards.
The Swedish black metal band was forced to change the name of their upcoming album to “Arkivet” after a letter of demand from Fonus. The funeral home threatens with financial measures if this is not changed as they have rights to the name and claim that there may be confusion and infringe on their service. Wormwood themselves knew about the service but were not aware that they were not allowed to use the term. The band clarifies:
– They claimed that it would create confusion and infringe on their service. After legal correspondence between both parties, we decided simply to avoid problems and change the name of the album to “Arkivet”. As a band, of course we think this is incredibly ridiculous, but what can we do? We are an underground band and cannot afford to quarrel with lawyers for days on end.
