Toìmaruìm, which translates from Icelandic to "empty space," exists as a sonic vessel used to explore the mental void left by extreme emotional pain.

Formed in 2017, the progressive black metal duo from Atlanta, Georgia tackles topics such as depression, anxiety, loss, and worthlessness over songs inspired equally by atmospheric black metal and technical death metal: melancholy, tremolo picked chords, aggressive pedal-point riffs and shred solos galore glide over precise and dynamic drumming, and are further accentuated by fretless bass, tasteful orchestrations, and a wide variety of vocal styles.

With the release of their debut EP "Wounds Ever Expanding" in 2020, Toìmaruìm began to generate a buzz online: the 17-minute release, which featured art by Mariusz Lewandowski and mixing/mastering by Colin Marston, garnered praise for its effective fusion of atmospheric black metal and technical death metal, being called "all at once tense, moving, and beautiful, and a must-listen for fans of technical music and melodic black metal" by Toilet ov Hell, as well as "so effortlessly unique on this two track release that it's hard to resist their complex charm" by Heavy Blog is Heavy.
