Tombs - Savage Gold 2-LP (Black vinyl)


Overall it’s a great metal album with the post-punk influence generating some interesting ideas and melody. While somewhat akin to Deafheaven with their infectious melodies, this is a much more metal oriented release, and it’s filled with a great heavy atmosphere, originality and downright genius riffs from start to end. It might not be a typical black metal headbanger, rather this is one for close listening, as it’s a very clever album. It’s so well put together, and with each song flowing seamlessly into the next, it’s hard to believe it’s nearly a full hour in length, with diverse and interesting song writing, this is going to go down well with those who want something a bit different in their black metal. Just dispense with those awful clean vocals next time!
