Full EP Premiere: Tombs – ‘Monarchy of Shadows’

With 4 staggering and critically acclaimed albums to their name, not to mention 13 solid years of hard grinding time put in as one of the heaviest bands in the world, Tombs have always existed in a realm entirely their own. On their new EP Monarchy of Shadows, the Brooklyn black metal ragers hit with a more compelling wallop than they’ve ever delivered before. Blending black metal, gothic metal, sludge, and anything else Mike Hill and co. can twist into something at once colossal and lithe, Monarchy of Shadows will level fans, critics and the completely ignorant alike.

“The new EP reflects a lifetime of dedication to creating extreme music,” says Tombs’ guitarist and vocalist Mike Hill. “I believe the entire range of intense emotions are represented on this record.”
