Tombs - Seance

Todays we are going to take a journey into the realms of extremity.

From the Brooklyn based progressive metal band TOMBS. Formed in 2007 by singer / guitarist Mike Hill (Anodyne, Versoma) in Brooklyn, NY,

TOMBS blends a wide array of influences including Black Metal and dark industrial music. The band went through a number of line-up changes with Hill the only remaining original member. Former members included Domenic Seita (Storm of Light) and Carson Daniel James. The band’s prior Relapse output included a self-titled EP and a split 12-inch with like-minded, Germanic darkness weavers Planks. Both records were release on Hill’s now-defunct label Black Box Recordings. The band’s first two Relapse releases, 2009's “Winter Hours” and 2011's “Path of Totality” both received massive reception from the press with the latter being featured prominently on many critic’s year end metal lists including Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, NPR and MetalSucks. The crowning achievement was securing the 2011 album of the year for Decibel Magazine.

“Savage Gold” the band’s third album on relapse continues TOMBS journey into the realms of extremity. The lineup includes long-time drummer and co-writer Andrew Hernandez as well as new members bassist Ben Brand (Woe) and guitarist Garett Bussanick (Flourishing). This time around, the band has teamed up with reknowned producer Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOATWHORE, HATE ETERNAL) to record the band's most extreme release to date.

The album focuses the awesome strength of TOMBS previous works into one brilliantly dark post-punk and extreme black-metal masterpiece. "Savage Gold" both expands upon the moody post-punk foundations that Tombs’ prior albums explored while also bringing out the band’s most traditionally metal moments yet. Once every few years a record comes along that sets a new benchmark for what can be done in heavy music. This is that moment and this is that record.

Todays tune "Seance" taken from the bands 3:rd album "Savage Gold", enjoy!
