Biography

Lord Worm (real name Dan Greening) is the original singer of the Canadian death metal band Cryptopsy. He joined the band in 1988 when they were known as Necrosis, but left in 1997 to work as an ESL teacher for adults. He picked his own replacement in the form of Mike DiSalvo. In 2003, he rejoined the band, and left again in 2007 due to health issues (though the band claims they kicked him out). He claims he got his nickname in the late eighties when he befriended a magician. According to Lord Worm they would spend their time smoking snake ribs.

Lord Worm is renowned for his stage act, during which he eats worms that he usually digs up himself before the show, and for his exceptional vocal gusto, such as on the song “Open Face Surgery” in which he prolongs a scream for approximately twenty-eight seconds straight. His lyrics have also received much recognition; while they tend to follow themes typical of death metal, they are of a high level verbally, showing creative use of vocabulary and a talent for making lines rhyme. However, his vocals have proved to be among the most difficult to decipher of all singers employing the death grunt style. This is likely due to the lack of verse structure of most Cryptopsy songs.

    "I'm pretty sure Worm would be smacking the shit out of Flo if he saw what he turned Cryptopsy into with the latest album." *Lord Worm goes to a Cryptopsy show, he is appalled by what the band has become. He enters backstage, angrily approaches Flo, grabs his hair and punches him in the face saying* "FLO! WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED?! I TURN MY BACK FOR A YEAR AND THIS IS WHAT YOU LET IT BECOME?!"
