Cedric Feschotte TOMBS steps up a notch with this release. Compositions are rich, melodic, visceral. Execution is both precise and liberal. Production is impeccable. Will place high on many end-year lists, including mine. Favorite track: Edge of Darkness.

Matti Easily best extreme Metal Album in 2014 so far (OK - together with Agalloch's "The Serpent and the Sphere" :-)). Perfect dark atmosphere, killer tracks, superb musicianship. Just listen to "Edge of Darkness", "Ashes" and "Legacy" in a row and you'll probably hit the "Buy now" Button - trust me. Favorite track: Edge of Darkness.

Scott Curtis This will make a lot of top ten lists at the end of the year... it gets better with each listen. Tombs has matured, the songwriting is at a different level now, and I loved "Path...". The people who have been waiting for this one will not be disappointed. Favorite track: Ashes.

Thanatos 04:25
Pathways beyond the fold The endless dream Calls beyond the void Does the soul remain Does the spirit die When flesh decays Does the will prevail Our Savage Gold The Living Dark Life is a dream In a sea of violence Life is a dream In a Sea of Diamonds Life is a dream In a sea of darkness
Portraits 06:50
Frozen lifeless clay Stare stand silent virtue As ego slips away Landscape dark alone No sign of the sun Darkened shadows fall Portrait of the night Portrait of the night Lie awake in your arms Portrait of the night Protect me from the darkness We are dust in infinity
Seance 05:29 video
Its name is memory It lives inside your flesh The serpent strikes Feeding on itself The serpent’s eyes Stare into forever The world of memory Exists outside of time Serpent’s eyes Timeless thoughts Complete the chain Immortality I hear the call From beyond this realm Exist outside of time
Echoes 07:56
We live by the sea In towers made of clay Flowers fade away Our world turns to dust Cast your eyes to eternity Legacy remains Through shades of darkness Kingdom of ashes Lost between the waves Time the great illusion Echo through eternity Into the void Across the void between the stars Inside your mind The serpent coil Exist beyond the veil of time Fear lives inside forever Let it fall Let it slip away Mortal We will remain Life is so fragile Mortal remorse We will remain Echoes and shadow Through eternity Darkness prevails Through eternity
Deathtripper 06:44
My mouth tastes like lead Fear cuts like glass I can’t stop the dream Of blood and suicide It’s a one-way street You’re already lost You’re on a trip down a one-way street You think there’s nothing to lose You’re already lost Already lost Fear cuts like glass I can’t stop the dream Of Blood and Suicide Already lost I see the world on fire Watch the setting sun Incinerate Flesh and Blood and Suicide …and Suicide
A sullen rain upon your life Your thoughts are not your own Drawn forth beyond the veil A fragile world of illusion Behold a silent world Gaze beyond the land of death Travel deep inside To the edge of darkness There lies a golden bridge Beyond this world of light Cross into the dark Find the great unknown Consciousness fades away I see the end of time Still spirit shadow world Still spirits feed the dark Edge of darkness Far beyond the edge of the world
Ashes 05:03
You can see it in my eyes This burning world Somewhere beyond the void of my life Beneath this bloody cross I end my life I fly on broken wings Across this mortal coil As the dark sets in I feel the world dissolve I feel it slip away I’m alive In the shadow of the sun Cast these scales from my eyes Once again into the breach Sacrifice Deny these gifts of heaven
Legacy 04:18
Release the world Into the darkness Reach in to see Dreams of past lives Cast away our mortal form Ashes of time Left behind The secret world Lost in time Time is a cycle repeating on itself World of illusion we play a part Eternal dark cannot be fathomed In a secret world Shadows forever Legacy of ashes
We came from far away These severed ways The world is flame Burning in the dark abyss To fall from grace To rule the world Severed Lives It feeds the world This poison world We rule the world This burning world
Spiral 06:17
Scorpion dance Live in solitude Climb the spiral path To darkened realm Bridge between the stars To the land of death Ascension to the light Break the chains Scorpion Dance Leave this poison life Deep inside We live in fear What lies beyond our mortal soul Deep inside our fragile soul And when you feel the darkness calling How will your final thoughts assemble


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.

Tombs Brooklyn, New York

Formed in 2007, Brooklyn-based experimental metal outfit TOMBS blends bleak, post-punk minimalism with the ferocious attack of sludge and traditional black metal. Over the course of the last nine years, TOMBS have established themselves as an act that's as committed to consistency as it is to growth, developing smoothly (but never predictably) over the course of their career. ... more
