New York/New Jersey metal collective TOMBS is now unleashing the RKGD audio remix of the song “Sombre Ruin,” which originally appeared on 2020’s full-length, ‘Under Sullen Skies.’ The updated version, “Sombre Ruins Nothing Remains,” was remixed by Alap Momin a.k.a. Oktopus and can be heard at THIS LOCATION.
TOMBS mastermind Mike Hill comments on the collaboration, “For years I have admired the work of my good friend Alap Momin a.k.a. Oktopus so it was really cool to unleash him on a remix. He chose the song and I agreed; the fairly abstract nature of the original track was wide open territory for a really cool, sinister interpretation.”
The single is the latest from TOMBS‘ upcoming ‘Ex-Oblivion’ digital EP, for which the final single will be made available on July 13. All songs will be available via Bandcamp, YouTube, and across all streaming services while a vinyl counterpart will be announced at a later date.
TOMBS will be hitting the road in North America next month in support of ORIGIN along with label-mates ABYSMAL DAWN. The full itinerary and ticket links can be found below!
The EP follows up TOMBS‘ 2020 full-length, ‘Under Sullen Skies,’ which was released in November of 2020. The record has been named one of the best metal releases of 2020 by Metal Insider, Decibel Magazine, The Pit, Riff Magazine, Chicago Music Guide’s Global Music Podcast, and others while drummer Justin Spaeth has been dubbed one of the best drummers of 2020 by Sick Drummer Magazine.
The cover artwork for ‘Ex Oblivion’ was created by Mike Goncalves.
