Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (6 Votes)

Tales of the Tomb are a Death Metal band from Canada that are obsessed with what they call Murder Metal, which is basically '90s-style Death Metal about serial killers and urban legends in the vein of Macabre and...actually, that's about it. Thankfully, unlike Macabre's more recent efforts, this EP isn't a complete waste of time to listen to. What you get is chunky, thugging riffs and guttural growls accompanied by sound clips including testimony from serial killers ("The Nightmare Hall"), 9/11 reports ("Nine Eleven"), and the show American Dad ("The Sinful Messiah"... I swear I'm not making that up), all put together to make an album that acts like the '90s U.S. Death Metal sound is the center of the known universe. There's nothing particularly new or serious-minded on here, but it's fun while it's on.
