WORMS OF THE BIRTH was conceived in 2011 by sole member Chris Shaver as a platform to release reworked MORBID DARKNESS material from the 1989-1991 era. In autumn 2011, 3 brand new singles (Harlequin Birth, Squirming Beneath Your Skin, Dawn Of The Parasite) were released which took on a new quasi-gore concept. An EP (Worms Of The Birth) was also released which included reworked MORBID DARKNESS songs from 1989-1990 and 2 cover songs. A follow up to the EP was in the works sporadically between 2012 and 2013, said to be a reworked collection of MORBID DARKNESS songs which originally were to be that bands first 1990 demo (The Mourning After - unfinished). Because WORMS OF THE BIRTH became part of the merger known as VHOD, the release was cancelled.
The VHOD merger ceased in early 2017 (VHOD would continue now as a seperate project from those involved in the merger) and WORMS OF THE BIRTH was again relaunched. WOTB released The Mourning After in May 2017 and a new full-length, (G)Hosts in June 2017. It is currently unknown whether future activity will continue.
