Tombs Savage Gold on Limited Edition 2LP w/ D-Side Etching + Download Card
Tombs’ third album Savage Gold is the most anticipated underground metal album of 2014. The band’s sophomore LP Path Of Totality unanimously topped 2011 end of the year metal lists (everyone from Decibel to Pitchfork to NPR, and more, dubbed it their top album of that year). Savage Gold focuses the awesome strength of Tombs’ previous works into one brilliantly dark post-punk and extreme black-metal masterpiece.
Recorded and produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore), 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. Renowned tattooist Thomas Hooper who is responsible for the band's previous album covers created the stunning artwork.
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.
