Dark Essence Records have today revealed a new single from “Thin The Veil”, the upcoming sixth full-length album from Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemers T.O.M.B, along with a video to accompany the track, which is titled “Pestilence”.
The video for “Pestilence” by the Ukranian underground visual video artist 028HATE, is directed by James P. Gannon, and can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/HIhfl_raDlE
The single itself, which features MAYHEM’s legendary drummer Hellhammer, along with Norwegian musician Andy Winter, from the band WINDS, on bass, can be streamed or downloaded at the following:
Formed in 1998 and drawing their initial inspiration from bands such as ABRUPTUM, HAVOHEJ, SAMAEL and SUNNO))), T.O.M.B’s lineup of No-One, B. Zimimay, Tyler B and Samantha Viola have skilfully crafted their own avant-garde style, which is characterised by an eclectic mix of Ambient, Doom, Industrial, Noise and traditional Black Metal.
Dealing with subject matters such as death, paranormal activity and occult practicesn T.O.M.B have used their trademark sound, which is both horrific, and, at the same time, hypnotically spell-binding, to devastating effect on “Thin The Veil”, demonstrating why the band is considered to be one of the top innovators of modern day Black Metal.
“Thin The Veil” is mastered by Tore Stjerna of the Necromorbus Studios in Sweden and features collaborations with musicians such the afore-mentioned Hellhammer on drums and Andy Winter on bass, as well as Craig Smilowski (Ex-IMMOLATION) and Duncan McLaren of VENOM WOLF, along with spoken necromancy spells recited by Maurice De Jong (“Mories” of GNAW THEIR TONGUES).
