From the Promoter
"Combining elements of speed, groove and melodicism with dark themes and undertones, "Sadistic Embodiment" will leave you with sore necks and full hearts"
TALES OF THE TOMB
Every town has stories to caution or warn, every police officer has a seen a crime that keeps them awake at night, and every coroner has seen death in ways that the rest of us could never imagine. Murder, conspiracy, supernatural horror, and real-life terror are stains on the cutting room floor where Edmonton-based group Tales of The Tomb paints their canvas.
Unified by the desire to have the grotesque power of 90’s era death metal, Tales of The Tomb started as a thought that grew into an insatiable need to make extreme music. Core Skerlak and Connor Adams divided duties to guitar and vocals respectively, Bryn Herbert was sewn on to cover bass, John Thomson is the machete-swinging drummer, and finally Tre Thomas to draw out the gruesome tone as the second guitarist. Much of their inspiration is drawn from the pulp-and-grim of throwback horror comics that glorified hideous crimes and creatures, and such was the inspiration for the name; Tales of The Tomb.
The band is a three-headed vocal attack layered with grinding blast beats, injected with Cerberus-esque barks and finished with shrill and raspy vocals -- a sound straight from hell. Gore-filled lyrics leave little to the imagination as the band concocts song after malicious song. Tales of the Tomb will destroy your eardrums like a corpse is erased in an acid-filled bath.
The band has their eyes poised to victimize their audiences anywhere they can reach. Their debut album Volume One: Morphras EP is slated to be unleashed on audiences November 27, 2015. This concept album about murder was mixed and mastered by Euro-death metal master Dan Swano (ex-Bloodbath, Unisound) and is just the first of many more sonic crimes to come from Tales of The Tomb.
