"Gomorrah's new album is going to rip the death metal scene apart! Technical, punishing with enough groove and melody to keep any listener captivated! Look out for their new album coming out in early 2016!" comments label founder / owner Grant Truesdell.

GOMORRAH, formed in the Okanagan valley of British Columbia originally as a black metal outfit in 2006 has now grown into an assaulting brutal groove and technical death metal band ready to unleash their boundary-pushing extreme sound in their upcoming, yet to be titled, second full-length in 2016 on Canadian label Test Your Metal Records to follow their 2013 ‘Perception’ LP and 2011 EP ‘Rome’.
“We have stepped up the quality of everything: the pre production process, the writing, structuring, lyrics, individual performances, mix and master have been improved. The combination of all those improvements translates to a major difference between our previous recordings and the single "A Disaster's Nightmare" as well as this forthcoming full-length. Improvement, through effort and time.” Comments guitarist Bowen Matheson.
Their name is best associated for its historical reference to the city of sinners as stated in the Book of Genesis, the Qur'an and Hadith, the Torah, and the New Testament, in which Gomorrah was destroyed by a higher power and lay in ruins. The band mimics the feeling of claustrophobic animosity one could imagine in the city leading up to its destruction through their punishing guitar, high-speed drumming, and guttural vocals while creating dark, irking soundscapes. The lyrics are inspired by the instrumentals and lyrically provide a gateway into each individual story being portrayed.
Coming from various musical backgrounds, members Bowen Matheson (Father’s Lung, Frozen Soil), Connor Bartley (Creative Bloodline), and Jeff Bryan (Atre Este, I, Atrocity, and Superhero Bestfriend) have taken their past experiences ranging from jazz to metal, to coalesces into a signature brand of aggressive metal.

About Test Your Metal Records:
Test Your Metal Records stands to leave a positive impact and everlasting dynasty within the Canadian Rock and Metal music scene. First and foremost TYM was founded to ensure the continued creation of music, art and culture! To employ as many people doing what they love, and to ultimately assist the worldwide music scene thrive in any way. TYM Records helps get the art, product and live show into the hands and ears of the fans.
To build a corporation and family that will help people reach their true potential and fuel their passion. Starting off with a talented roster of bands, promoting and constantly innovating new music for the record label. Manufacturing and promoting their new albums and sending them out on tour across the globe. My vision is to revolutionize the music industry by giving the music to the fans for a monthly membership fee. Having a multitude of perks set up through the Loyalty membership, and a multitude of external companies providing incentives and cross promotion. I aspire to make a service that people from all walks of life can enjoy and benefit from. 20% of net profit of the label will be deposited into a fund for the ‘TYM Academy of the Arts’. Which will be a Non-Profit music and arts academy I hope to open within the next 3-5 years.
Like any good long lasting relationship, the things I value in business are also the things I value in life. Passion, Love, Honesty, Compassion, Teamwork and most of all FUN, FREEDOM and INTERDEPENDENCE. I started TYM Records because I want to help bands push to the next level while keeping control within their hands and to help them make a living from it!!! To always have fun and work as a family to build a career together. On top of the normal royalties baid to the artists and with the implementation of the Loyalty club I plan on paying out 24% of all net profits from the loyalty club to the bands on the roster on the last day of each month. So theoretically we will be able to watch the label grow to the point where every band on the label can solely focus on their craft and not have to worry about the bills! I aspire to be a leading example of Honesty, Fairness, Dedication and Transparency within this company. I have made it my new mission in life to help as many people as possible and I believe through TYM Records we can achieve that!
