Simple things first – where are you guys from?
From the deepest depths of the Black Country, West Midlands, UK.
How did you meet?
During a blood moon whilst sacrificing virgins in the name of Satan.
How long have you been playing as a band?
The band was conceived years ago through nights of horror films, booze and hot wings but we had our first practice in August 2018.
Before you get sick of being asked… where does the band name come from?
We are two men playing in a doom band. Tumanduumband.
What are your influences?
Satan. 70s/80s sleazy horror. The occult.
Describe your music. What makes you unique?
We provide a simple yet crushingly heavy sound. Infectious riffs and grooves that help build this dark, mesmerising atmosphere. We do not have any vocals but provide obscure sound clips that help us inject some Satanic flavour.
What’s your live show like? How many shows have you played?
Our stage show is growing over time. Goat and wolf masks with blackened out eyes, skulls, inverted crucifixes etc. We have some special plans for some of our upcoming shows. We want our shows to be live riff-tuals. An immersive, consuming, infernal experience.
So far we have played a handful of dates but more and more are flooding in.
What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?
In other bands that we have been in we have spat “blood” onto unsuspecting crowds, had fights break out during sets, broken teeth etc.
What kit do you use / guitars do you play / etc.?
Coffins, bin lids and the four strings of the Apocalypse.
What, if anything, are you plugging/promoting at the moment?
We currently have a 4 track self-titled demo on Bandcamp and have a number of shows booked.
What are your plans for 2019?
To spread our filthy, doom-laden riff-tual across this dying planet.
If you were second on a three-band bill, which band would you love to be supporting and which band would you choose to open for you? A chance to plug someone you’ve toured with, or a mate’s band we’ve not heard of before!
We would love to support Electric Wizard and have our old grind band Vicious Bastard play first. A band that never truly died and will rear its ugly head again one day.
