Tombstalker Signs With Shadow Kingdom Records

Shadow Kingdom Records dug through the wastelands of Kentucky to find and sign, Tombstalker. The label comments:

“Established in 2008 these champions of chaos have been harnessing their unique blend of black and death metal fury and are prepared to conquer all in their path. At its core lies a foundation of dark and venomous death metal in the vein of the early 90s Swedish pioneers, further injected with a heavy dose of Bolt Thrower that crushes like tank treads over fragile bones! They also have elements of evil thrash metal such as (early) Sepultura, dark melodic sense of Dissection or Necrophobic, and lastly nods to early 80s UK and Scandinavian hardcore. When it all comes to together it makes for one disgusting beast of a band!

“Their debut full-length album ‘Black Crusades’ is set to devastate the underground with its filth ridden, hammer crushing anthems of chaos. An unholy union of extreme metal accomplished without detracting from any one school this album makes for a refreshing take on classic sounds. Above all Tombstalker represents the warrior spirit and evolution through conflict! There is only WAR!”

The album’s track listing is:

1. Forlorn Recollections
2. Chaos Undivided
3. Blood Thirster
4. Fate Weaver
5. Black Crusades
6. Soul Eater
7. Plague Father
8. Chaos Enthroned
