“…ripping New Mexico death metal…” — Decibel Magazine
Santa Fe, New Mexico-based death metal faction STREET TOMBS today unveil their latest single, “Devour.” Now playing at Decibel Magazine, the brutal new hymn comes off the band’s Reclusive Decay debut, set for release via Carbonized Records February 17th!
Elaborates guitarist/vocalist Damian Jacoby of the track’s theme, “In ‘Devour,’ humans are convinced by a deceptive leader to consume human flesh as a sacred rite of passage to gain eternal life. Blindly submitting, the village is plunged into darkness as vile sickness riddles their bodies. Death is a respite, the false promise of eternal life long forgotten.”
Stream STREET TOMBS’ “Devour” at THIS LOCATION.
Reclusive Decay was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Augustine Ortiz at The Decibel Foundry with additional recording by Galen Baudhuin, cover art by Todd White, additional interior artwork by Lucas B, and logo by Ben Brodsky.
Reclusive Decay will be released on CD, LP, cassette, and digitally. Find preorders at The Carbonized webshop HERE or Bandcamp HERE where first single, “Rising Torment” can be streamed.
Formed in 2017, STREET TOMBS was forged in the flames of the legendary underground venue, The Cave, where the band hosted numerous shows for the DIY punk/metal community of Santa Fe and surrounding cities. The collective has released three demos since 2018. Combining the death metal grit of early Sepultura and Bolt Thrower with the rabid D-Beat/street punk of Discharge and G.B.H., Reclusive Decay presents a unified vision for all that is dark, heavy, and fast. As death and disease rage through our modern world, STREET TOMBS rip the abyss of suffering.
