Originally formed in the unrelenting heat of Corpus Christi, Texas, Wailin Storms migrated east and ended up in Durham, North Carolina. Producing a mix of doom-punk and swampy rock with elements of their prior and current surroundings culminate into a unique and volatile brew, overridden with ominous vocal elements reminiscent of bluesy masters like Howlin' Wolf and Samhain, and musically carved from the Southern American East Coast with emotive nods to Destruction Unit, Clockcleaner, Unsane, and Pussy Galore. The band’s output is incessantly passionate and harrowing in its entirety; the songs, dark and gritty, with incisive guitar slicing through heavy, churning rhythms. Lead singer Justin Storms howls convincingly amongst the cacophony, belting along as if he’s looking to recruit others to join in with him at any moment.
After two EPs — 2011’s Bone Colored Moon and 2014’s Shiver — the band began collaborating with members from various bands, including Bats & Mice, to release their debut LP, One Foot In The Flesh Grave. Wailin Storms’ deep, dark, swampy and catchy as hell new material bears seven hymns for this ongoing funeral procession of everyday life.
