Today’s reveal of a new video and single taken  from “Thin The Veil”, the upcoming sixth full-length album  from Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemers T.O.M.B , shows that Dark Essence Records are off to a flying start in 2020.

The video for the single “Decapitation of the Gods”, by Carl Eek Torgersen of Necrolust Productions, gives the listener a glimpse into the brutal, blasphemous savagery present throughout the new album,  and highlights T.O.M.B.’s next phase of collaborative work with MAYHEM’s legendary drummer Hellhammer, along with Norwegian musician Andy Winter, from the band WINDS, on bass.

The video for “Decapitation of the Gods” can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/1-I6JlHgsSI

Mastered by Tore Stjerna of the Necromorbus Studios in Sweden, and with artwork by the underground occult artist Paul Barton, “Thin The Veil”  is set for release on the 24th January, in CD and Vinyl editions, and is now available to pre-order from the following:

Over the twenty plus years of their existence T.O.M.B have skilfully crafted their own avant-garde style, which is characterised by an eclectic mix of Ambient, Doom, Industrial, Noise and traditional Black Metal.  It is a style that has earned the band a well-deserved place as one of the top innovators of modern day Black Metal.

Drawing their initial inspiration from bands such as ABRUPTUM, HAVOHEJ, SAMAEL and SUNNO))), musicians No-One, B. Zimimay, Tyler B and Samantha Viola formed T.O.M.B in 1998, and they have, since then,  gone on to release  numerous LPs, EPs, compilations and splits.  Releases imbued with T.O.M.B’s trademark sound that  is both horrific, and, at the same time, hypnotically spell-binding,  and which deals with subject matters such as death, paranormal activity and occult practices.

Dark Essence Records have inked a deal with Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemers T.O.M.B, and are set to release “Thin The Veil”, the latest album from the US band on a date as yet to be confirmed.

Drawing their initial inspiration from bands such as ABRUPTUM, HAVOHEJ, SAMAEL and SUNNO))), musicians No-One, B. Zimimay, Tyler B and Samantha Viola formed T.O.M.B in 1998, and they have, since then,  gone on to release  numerous LPs, EPs, compilations and splits.  Releases imbued with T.O.M.B’s trademark sound that  is both horrific, and, at the same time, hypnotically spell-binding,  and which deal with subject matters such as death, paranormal activity and occult practices.

Over the twenty plus years of their existence T.O.M.B have skilfully crafted their own avant-garde style, which is characterised by an eclectic mix of Ambient, Doom, Industrial, Noise and traditional Black Metal.  It is a style that has earned the band a well-deserved place as one of the top innovators of modern day Black Metal.

Commenting on their collaboration with Dark Essence Records, T.O.M.B had this to say:

It is with great admiration and honor we announce our addition to the Dark Essence artist roster.  Our latest album “Thin The Veil” marks another milestone of continuous progression for T.O.M.B. and we look forward to the release being represented under the banner of Norway’s most extreme, cutting edge record label in black metal!

Whilst not yet wanting to reveal too many details of the upcoming release, both band and label have, however, offered a tantalising glimpse into “Thin The Veil”, which will feature MAYHEM’s Hellhammer  on drums, alongside collaborations with musicians such as  Craig Smilowski  (Ex-IMMOLATION),  Andy Winter of WINDS, Duncan McLaren of VENOM WOLF, and with spoken necromancy spells recited by Maurice De Jong (“Mories” of GNAW THEIR TONGUES).   All in all fans can expect “T.O.M.B’s unique harsh atmospheric death-industrial style to be combined with a relentless, fierce and primitive form of musicianship reminiscent of the old glory days of 2nd Wave Black Metal”
