New York-based experimental metal act Tombs have always teetered right on the edge of weird, and hopefully their forthcoming record Savage Gold tips them closer in that direction. Our first taste of Savage Gold in ‘Edge of Darkness’ boded quite well for the record, and the followup jab with ‘Deathtripper‘ has landed Savage Gold on my most anticipated records for the coming months.
‘Deathtripper‘ is streaming exclusively over at The Onion’s AV Club, and it’s a dynamic track full of psychedelic stargazing and creeping industrial churning. The group’s blackened sludge leanings bare fangs during the song’s climax, an exclamation on the brooding drudge that came before it.
Savage Gold will be out June 10th through Relapse Records. Pre-orders can be purchased at this location.
