Bubbling up from the oozing sewers of Toronto like a bizarre insectoid of mutant genotype, Tomb Mold reanimates with their second album, Manor Of Infinite Forms. Constructing monumental towers of obscure shape, jarring yet coherent, the band's compositions evoke a distorted world where all manner of oddity and peculiarity are permitted. Songs move in strange ways, recklessly contorting into cohesion until suddenly they're proceeding with a force and purpose in perfect synchronicity to the universe that contains them. Disharmoniously melding the pulverizing heaviness of Finnish death metal with a never overbearing technicality, Tomb Mold careen through alien landscapes with formidable singularity. Tracked in Toronto, it then landed in the hands of Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Pissgrave, Code Orange) to achieve its organically huge mix. A remarkable puzzle of an album, Manor Of Infinite Forms constitutes a creative high point for 2018 death metal releases.
