Tomb and Doom are a death metal band from Brisbane – that is something I didn’t think I would be writing about, but it’s true, Australia has great artists in the death metal genre too and Tomb and Doom fall right into that category. While I am not the biggest fan of heavy metal, besides Pantera, Anthrax, Lamb of God and a couple of others; I thought it would be a good thing to post about Tomb of Doom.
So, in this article, I have their new song ‘Worm’ and information for their upcoming tour, which you can find out below.
Before you listen to the song below, Vocalist Luke Hegarty had a lot to say about the song itself:
The lyrics of this song are just my form of expressing anger and resentment toward the financial system and government that controls every aspect of our lives. Many young people are very, very angry about the fact that our economy has been inflated to the point where we will never be able to outright own our own homes or property because of the disparity between the average wage and the cost of housing or land. Negative gearing, which the baby boomers have implemented to line their own pockets has essentially fucked us.
All the while we’ve been raised to aspire to be rich and famous, to buy shit, to consume and ingest products and food that is fundamentally destructive to the human mind, body and spirit not to mention the environment in which we all inhabit and I’m really fucking pissed off about it.
‘Worm’ is a really heavy song – as most death metal songs are – so make sure you’ve got the volume on your phone or PC all the way up!
The band are also hitting some show dates in the near future, taking in Sydney, Brisbane and Wollongong on mini-festival lineups with some of Australia’s sickest and heaviest, including Gravemind, Alpha Wolf, The Honest Crooks and To the Grave.
