Tales Of The Tomb Releasing Debut EP

Canadian death metal band Tales Of The Tomb will release debut EP "Volume One: Morpras" on November 27, 2015. Tales Of The Tomb 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. Drummer John Thomson comments:

"Out of the gates we have just under a year have played over a half dozen shows and recorded our debut 3-song EP entitled 'Morpras.' The name is old English for 'secret killing of a person, unlawful killing.' The EP is a compilation of serial killer themed music not celebrating but elaborating on the heinous crimes committed by infamous murderers. It is old school death metal with its blending of melody and groove, gives 'Morpras' its unique sound.

"The first track 'Snowtown' will ease you into this murderous journey with a heavy groove and plenty of vocals. 'Pig Farmer,' the 2nd song on the EP is as fast and brutal as the slaying of Robert Pickton; the song is also accompanied with our lyrical video which will be available on Youtube. 'Dr. Death' also makes an appearance as the final track, a chilling slower tempo song that depicts the heinous crimes of Harold Shipman."

This concept album about murder was recorded by Greg Wright at Hillbilly Wizard Sound Studio, and mixed/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. More...
