One of Richmond, Virginia’s best underground Psych Stoner Rock bands Book Of Wyrms return with their new single Storm Warning. The song allows Book Of Wyrms to explore the world of the 1970’s Psych/Space Rock scene with the wild reckless and hedonistic abandonment of the 1980’s Heavy Metal scene but keeping with their Stoner Rock roots.

The vocals from Sarah are bewitching and rebellious as ever with a darker presence around them compared to previous Book Of Wyrms releases. The grooves are more rooted within the flashier aspects of the 80’s Hard Rock/Heavy Metal arena with the band showcasing with an impressive array of classic guitar solos that leaves the Psych Rock sound that the band are known for becoming more restrained in places. However, everything works as it should with Space Rock sounds moving into heavier areas of Psych Stoner Rock that remain constantly forceful within the background.

Storm Warning shows a new sense of maturity to Book Of Wyrms and if this is the new creative direction where the band is heading then the band’s next full length record could be quite an exciting prospect indeed.

However, allow Book Of Wyrms entertain the sheer hell out of you with this excellent track that ranks as one of their best songs to date.

Words by Steve Howe
