New York/New Jersey metal collective TOMBS is now premiering a faithful and brutalizing cover of Motörhead’s iconic song, “Killed by Death.” In true Motörhead fashion, bassist Drew Murphy takes the vocal lead on this one, channeling the gruff rock ‘n’ roll spirit of Lemmy Kilmister with perfect precision. The song features guest guitarist Dan Higgins of HAMMERFIGHT, who performs with Murphy in New Jersey’s premier Motörhead tribute band, ENGINEHEAD. The song and accompanying visualizer can be found at the official Season of Mist Youtube here:

In addition, Murphy created the single artwork in which he reimagines Snaggletooth for this tribute that is now available as a special merch design which can be found at the official TOMBS Bandcamp here:

The single is the latest from TOMBS‘ upcoming ‘Ex-Oblivion’ digital EP, for which the final single will be made available on July 13. All songs will be available via Bandcamp, YouTube, and across all streaming services while a vinyl counterpart will be announced at a later date.

‘Ex-Oblivion’ can be pre-saved across all digital platforms here:
