Nomasta, a 3-piece forged in the fires of the Leeds underground, deftly infuse doom-laden thrash with bursts of elephantine riffs and dancing time signatures. Since forming in 2015, they’ve complimented their ferocious live shows with a debut single, ‘The Book Burners’, and merchandise through alternative clothing label Pyre Climber.
13 years of invaluable gigging experience in the UK DIY scene, alongside the likes of Cult of Luna, Oceansize, Godseed and Sylosis, has attributed to a band which, only in its infancy, can already perform on a level akin to that of their peers.
Nomasta’s writing force, previously behind disbanded UK noise rockers Canaya (feat. Members of Dragged Into Sunlight, Evisorax and Krokodil) firmly cemented their profile in Metal Hammer, Kerrang, Rock Sound and Terrorizer magazine after receiving glowing reviews of the Canaya’s debut and follow up EPs Alignment of Dying Planets (2010) and Sealed Within the Walls (2014) whilst gaining the support and air play of Radio 1 DJ Daniel P Carter.
Over one year in the making House of the Tiger King is a true reflection of a dedication, and an unbridled passion for crafting music that any metal head could understand, love and raise a fist to.
There is a fantastic range of merchandise available for fans by West Yorkshire’s very own Steve Myles, the graphic designer behind ethical alternative clothing label Pyre Climber who is a long term collaborator involved with the band.
House of the Tiger King will be released on November 3rd. Watch the premiere of the video for ‘Dawnbreaker’ below.
