THE TOMB OF NICK CAGE
New Orleans Based paranormal Horror Rock. The truth will be exposed. Old world horror for the new world order.
We are an engaging and theatrical Horror Rock / New Wave, Metal and Deathrock band from New Orleans! Inspired by the mysterious Tomb of Nicolas Cage that now sits in historic St. Louis #1, we began to wonder if there were secrets behind this mysterious pyramid, and began to speculate on its strange origin. This led us down a path we never expected - filled with conspiracy theories, horror and secret societies as old as time itself. Started by Melissa (Kym Trailz) as a musical scoring project for a local short horror film, the band grew quickly into a fully realized concept.
In our short years together, we have begun travelling the convention and dark music festival circuit (The International Cryptozoology Conference 2018, Nola Time Fest, Creepy Fest, Pensacon, Nosferatu Festival and Convergence XXII -where we held court over the worlds first live band GOTHIC karaoke- to just name a few.) we have been noticed by media outlets both locally and overseas, performed a secret, elite show and ritual with the almighty Chewbaccus marching krewe.
Our stage show and concept are one of a kind. Combining post-punk, punk, new wave and even metal elements, we hope to present a new sound to the horror community. In the short time since our inception we have released a four song E.P. and a second split EP with Jason and the Kreugers celebrating “The Howling” franchise. We released a full-length album entitled “The Pharaoh of New Orleans” on July 04, 2017 and are looking forward to releasing our new album "Cryptids and Creatures" on December 5th 2019. We are beginning to book tour dates for 2020, filming short episodes about our fight against the supernatural and have released a brand new video for our songs, “THEY LIVE!” and "R'lyeh"
Finally, we are very pleased to introduce the newest members of our team, Guitarist Taylor Suarez and Drummer Edward Joubert. Taylor and Sean toured Cuba with a horror metal act in 2012 for the annual Brutal Fest and Edward is an accomplished veteran of the music scene in New Orleans and is a very welcome addition as one of the most knowledgeable encyclopedias of horror fandom and conspiracy we have ever met. Joining with Vocalist Melissa Crory (AKA Kym Trailz), Bassist Sean Mooney, and Guitarist Aaron Maguire we have a project that is as varied as it is driven. We can’t wait to share and grow with the horror community. You will be seeing lots of us in the future!

What People are saying about The Tomb of Nick Cage:
"If you’re into immediate spooky punk with a 1980s horror film backdrop, these guys (and gal) are for you. I believe they’re going to be energizing crowds for a long time. New Orleans, you’ve been warned! The Tomb of Nick Cage is real, and it’s awesome." - Landon Murray, Where Y'at Magazine
"Tomb of Nick Cage conserves the goth mainstream’s standards, recalling Skeletal Family and Xmal Deutschland, as well as Alice Cooper, the various vehicles of Glenn Danzig and ‘80s Ramones. Pulling ToNC’s work even further toward the latter is their upfront dedication to the motifs of horror B-movies." - Ben Miotke, Antigravity Magazine
"This sh*t is EXCITING, know what I mean? It's legit, clever, and all sorts of ugly/beautiful" - DJ SEXX ED - NEW ORLEANS
"The Tomb Of Nick Cage have come barreling out of New Orleans with a sound that is different from most bands in the genre right now, and if nothing else, deserve respect for sticking to their guns with the sound. The fact that it all works just adds to the greatness they are throwing out there, and I definitely recommend giving them a shot if you’re looking for something a little different, but also is distinctly horror punk." -Kyle Scharf - Deadhouse Horror
"Tomb Of Nick Cage is kinda doin’ their own thing, meshing horror, punk, goth and metal and having a good friggin’ time while doing it." - Bobby Bergeron - Paranoize 'Zine
I want to go surfing, but I'm afraid to get in the water." - Facebook user
