The next abomination to possess the stage was Pennsylvania’s mysterious spellbounders T.O.M.B. (Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemy). Considered a black noise project, T.O.M.B. far exceeds the parameters of a typical band and is more of a ready-made dark performing art. Working with field recordings from cemeteries, abandoned insane asylums, crematories, morgues and other rotting places of a hollow and torturous past, T.O.M.B. brings something unique and terrifying to the stage. Fans watched in confusion and disarray as the autonomous and gloomy harvesters of sound began to mesmerize them with non-conventional metal instruments, conducting a series of spells and rituals such as “Jaw Bones”, “Birth”, “Ram Horn” and “Summoning.”

T.O.M.B. continued entrancing and terrifying the audience, with the smoke from incense rising up through a pile of various skulls within a wall of disorienting rabid sound. The blood letting rituals had begun. Incinerating their set T.O.M.B. cast the last spell “Ram Skull Sacrifice.” Many non-conventional items were used to create sound during the show such as the amplifying scraping of horns, jawbones, and a hand-held scythe across a tombstone to create disorienting and haunting sounds. This unique approach to metallurgy is an unusual and rare subgenre of black metal and made for a very interesting experience, to say the least.
