RINGWORM – return with highly anticipated 9th album ‘Seeing Through Fire’ out now + watch the new video for ‘House Of Flies’

22nd August 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

Masters of extreme metal RINGWORM have made their long-awaited return with the release of their 9th full-length album, Seeing Through Fire, out now from Nuclear Blast Records. An auditory wrecking ball of filth, chaos and reckless abandon, RINGWORM sinks their teeth into listeners with pummeling tracks like ‘Thought Crimes,’ ‘No Solace, No Quarter, No Mercy’ and the devastating track ‘House of Flies.’

Founding vocalist Human Furnace stated on the album:

We’re pretty pumped on ‘Seeing Through Fire.’ It’s a total burner. It’s a straightforward, “smash your face and leave you layin’ there wondering what you got hit with” type record. We’ve never felt the need to “re-invent our own wheel” but going into this one we tried some different things sonically, and we’re very happy with the results. Of course, it’s the intention, every time we record a new record, but we feel like the over-all sound, feel and aggression of ‘Seeing Through Fire,’ one ups many of our past records. Which, for anyone that knows our catalog, is not always an easy task. With every new record, you have to dig deeper.

In hand with the album release, RINGWORM has debuted a new video today for the crushing track ‘House of Flies.’

Commenting on the song, HF says:

‘‘House of Flies,’ speaks to lingering secrets we all keep and how they can make you feel dead inside. As they fester and multiply, eventually they will make their way to the surface, and the fly is a universal harbinger that death and decomposition that one could feel.

On the rarest of occasions, there comes along a band that latches on and annihilates your ears with such a unique combination of sounds, you find yourself dislodged from the monotony of everyday music, and rooted firmly in the terrain of admiration. Cleveland Ohio’s RINGWORM are no strangers to this concept and have been fascinating metalheads with their unorthodox melodies for over 30 years. Now recently signed to Nuclear Blast Records, the guys are preparing to unleash their 9th studio album: Seeing Through Fire.
We wanted to go with a slightly different approach and look than the previous records, it’s a new era for us,” explains vocalist and founder James Bulloch, also known as the Human Furnace. “It’s a little bit of a return to our roots, you have those moments every so often where you wanna get back to your comfort zone, but at the same time you want to expand that comfort zone.
A different level of sound quality was accomplished with Seeing Through Fire as technology allowed RINGWORM to banish any previous restrictions laid upon them during the production and recording processes. Working again with Noah Buchanan of Mercenary Studios in Cleveland, this was the first time everything, including vocals, was recorded in that same space.
With Seeing Through Fire recorded and artwork prepped, the album was packaged and ready to go when Nuclear Blast Records became aware of RINGWORM’s motivation to unleash it in 2023. “We’re fortunate to be able to work with Nuclear Blast, especially at this stage. It opens up a lot of doors for us, and a lot more people can hear what we do. We’re looking forward to working with them; it’s nice having their team, their machine, built around us.”
RINGWORM’s newest offering: Seeing Through Fire, is out now via Nuclear Blast Records.
