TALES OF THE TOMB Shares Guitar Playthrough 'The Nightmare Hall' Off Conspiracy EP “Volume Two: Mendacium”

 Edmonton death metal duo Tales of The Tomb have been a two-man wrecking crew for a while now with Trez Thomas (Guitar and Vocals) and Corey Skerlak (Guitar and Vocals), but earlier this month they announced they have become a trio with the addition of bassist Jonnii Guns. Over the last few months, the band has been unleashing guitar and bass playthrough videos in support of their latest EP “Volume Two: Mendicium” unleashed this past September.

Today, the band reveals their next duo guitar playthrough for the track "The Nightmare Hall", which can be viewed via its premiere on TechnicalMusicReview HERE.

Guitarist Tres Thomas comments:

"'The Nightmare Hall' is one of the most technical songs we have written as of yet. It’s so amazing to finally release the playthrough for this song to showcase the merciless riffs in this duo playthrough. The video also features every guitar that was on the album, and more!"

Tales of The Tomb's latest EP “Volume Two: Mendicium” is a collection of narratives surrounding government cover-ups, national lies, and the heinous crimes committed amongst the shadows. It's also a vicious bite of grinding blast beats, technical shredding accompanied by venomous guttural lows. It was mixed and mastered by Cryptopsy guitarist and head engineer/owner at The Grid Studios Christian Donaldson along with featuring artwork by Tony Midi of Tonymidi Artworks.

The EP is available on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music.

Unified by the desire to have the grotesque power of 90’s era death and murder metal, Tales of The Tomb started as a thought that grew into an insatiable need to make extreme music.  Tales Of The Tomb was created in October 2013 from founder Corey Skerlak (guitar, vocals) out of inspiration from the original murder metal band Macabre.

Much of their inspiration is drawn from the hideous crimes and conspiracies of the world. Retelling stories of the dark hidden secrets and victims from such crimes. This was the inspiration for the name Tales of The Tomb.

"Overall, I recommend this album to death metal fans of all varieties. It is a fun album with a lot of great riffs. Also, I highly recommend reading the lyrics and learning about the conspiracy theories behind the songs." - Metal Temple

"Volume Two: Mendacium is six songs of punishing metal fit for listeners with the heaviest of taste. Whether you’re spending time carving pumpkins or watching slasher movies this Halloween season, be sure to make room on your playlist for Tales of the Tomb." - Surviving The Golden Age

" Their new, independently released EP is heavy as ice and laced up with razor-sharp production. Volume Two: Mendacium is a non-stop frosty riff fest, delivered on a moose-poutine platter of awesome production thanks to the Canucks over at The Grid. Slapshot your wallets & pick up this death metal gem." - TrveNorth Reviews

"The need to head bang is strong with this one, and it made for an excellent addition to my Death Metal library." - New-Transcendence

"All in all, Tales of the Tomb's latest installment is a rather subtle tale that is more akin to a destructive musical journey through morbid lyrical themes and passages." - Metal Trenches
