TOMBS - Edge of Darkness Official Track

Biography

Formed in 2007 as a collaboration between Mike Hill (Anodyne), Dominic Seita (Speedloader), and Justin Ennis (the Heuristic), Brooklyn, New York-based, experimental metal outfit Tombs blends bleak, post-rock minimalism with the ferocious attack of sludge and classic black metal. The group's dark proto-industrial sounds were first put to wax that year in the form of a two-song EP simply ... Read more in Amazon's Tombs Store

Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

A stunning tour-de-force of an album from a uniquely heavy band.

Product Description

Brooklyn's TOMBS deliver a stunning tour-de-force with their Relapse Records debut 'Winter Hours'. The trio tread a unique musical path that draws equally from several disparate music worlds. The austere and appropriately-titled album is a somber, sobering affair that brings together hypnotic psychedelic harmonies, lush and introspective sonic textures, and a relentless intensity found in the most blackened metal to stunning effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars My thoughts on Tombs Winterhours July 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
As of this writing, this CD sits at #121,812 in Music and there exists not a single review, signals that Tombs' latest album is in danger of falling into the dreaded "hidden gem" category that music elitists love (due to feelings of exclusivity and possession) and bands hate (due to lack of dollars for which to fund their art). While the lack of sales doesn't surprise me, the lack of word of mouth here does. I can't be the only person on the planet who has feelings strong enough to warrant a word or two about this excellent album.

Let me put it simply: If you like bands like Isis, Neurosis or High on Fire, I can't imagine you wouldn't enjoy getting your senses pummeled by this talented trio from Brooklyn. These guys put out a wickedly huge sound, a sonic maelstrom of foreboding and melancholy that doesn't get bogged down in experimental passages or drone, but constantly moves forward in tight song structures. While the vocals (abrasive but fitting), guitars and bass (monolithic but melodic) are all excellent, the drums are a special high point for technical skill and cavernous sound.

Epic without epic length, this disc rewards repeated spins. Highly recommended!

Noisy, hard, smart, everything you could want in a rock band. Some metal cliches notwithstanding, this is a great album by a band that you have to see live to fully appreciate. So buy it, and then go see them play. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leaves me hungry for more. January 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
With so much faceless metal on the market, it seems difficult to find bands intelligent enough to spiritually succeed their predecessors, instead of going down the safer "spot the influence by the riffs" path that might be more gratifying at first but wears itself thin after a few listens. Tombs are a trio of guys from Brooklyn who play what's now been coined as "blackened" death metal, which I've come to understand means being able to take what a lot of those underground black metal dudes aim for and beat them at their own game by having great musicianship and writing comprehensible songs.

Not one of these ten songs feels a second too long, each one founded on build and release moments of tension and changing rhythms that twist and turn and bring true pathos to the guitar work and vocals. This album could actually afford to be longer. As it stands, it's a work that makes me excited to hear what's next for this band and how they plan to develop their sound.
