What started out as 3 guys in a bedroom, programming on a beaten old computer with a battered guitar and broken amp, has evolved into an 8 legged, electronic hardcore monster known as Tooms.
Influenced by Jungle, Breakcore, Hard Style and Gabba, and raised from a ridiculously early age on hardcore, metal and a decades worth of writing and performing the latter, Tooms create a sound which fits somewhere between a moshpit and a sweaty rave.
On February 15th 2013 Tooms released their debut EP Disgraceland on legendary New York hardcore label Industrial Strength Records. The track scored 5/5 in Fabryka Industrial Rock magazine describing it as "an in-your-face answer to the current mainstream metal" and the EP features remixes from; Lenny Dee, Lowroller, Grr and Dirty Fingers Licked (TrackItDown featured hardcore track on release).
This is a crossover band fast emerging from its origins of assimilation and, It won’t come as any surprise to find that whilst these guys have their ear to the harmony of the music, their eye is on the dysfunctional world outside. Politics, life and all that stuff wrote large, they’ve dragged the serious side of metal into this brand new fusion.
