SPIRITWORLD drop new track, ‘Moonlit Torture’, ready for Bloodstock!

SPIRITWORLD rides again. Leaving a trail of blood and dust, Stu Folsom and his gang from somewhere south of heaven, return with a new single and video, Moonlit Torture. Featuring vocals from Integrity mastermind, Dwid Hellion, Moonlit Torture is SPIRITWORLD’s first new song since their acclaimed Pagan Rhythms debut collection and a hint of what’s to come as the band saddles up for their first time on Europe’s soon-to-be blood-soaked soil.

Discussing the new single, Folsom informs:

“Moonlit Torture was produced by Sam Pura (The Story So Far, Basement) with Thomas Pridgen (Mars Volta, Residente) on drums and features guest vocals from Dwid Hellion (Integrity, Psywarfare). Integrity’s ‘Humanity is the Devil’ was the first record I ever bought from a hardcore band when it came out. To say that album shaped my life and taste in extreme music would be an understatement! Hearing Dwid howl over top of my riffs is possibly the coolest shit ever!”

Says Dwid on his contribution to Moonlit Torture:

“Keep your eye on SPIRITWORLD because the apocalypse is about to be fully unleashed! I feel honored to have been invited up to testify on their pulverizing new sermon, Moonlit Torture. Unleash the fiend within!”


SPIRITWORLD emerged in 2017 as a musical outlet for Folsom’s love of punk, outlaw country and metal. SPIRITWORLD’s earliest efforts took a decidedly outlaw roots punk bent. Yet, it was with the full-metal direction taken on the initially self-released Pagan Rhythms, (re-released in 2021 through SPIRITWORLD’s new label home, Century Media) that won the band international acclaim. Daniel P. Carter, BBC 1 DJ and curator of The Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, as well as the likes of Exodus/Slayer guitarist Gary Holt and former Sepultura/current Soulfly leader Max Cavalera sang the album’s praises on their social media, discovering the band on word-of-mouth alone.
