New York metal out fit Tombs will be releasing their new album this June and the band has just dropped a blistering, blackened new track that will take you to the “Edge Of Darkness.” Get it? Well, enough of the puns, you NEED to hear this track. If you don’t do anything else today, get a dose of Tombs after the jump. Continue reading
Tombs have announced the release of their third full length album, Savage Gold. The new outing was produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan and will be released on June 6th (Germany/Benelux), June 9th (UK/World) and June 10th (North America) via Relapse Records. You can check out the album’s cover art, track listing, and forthcoming tour dates after the break. Pre-order information will be released in the coming weeks.
According to a recent Facebook update, Tombs are making great progress with their new record. The band hinted at the possibility of seventy-seven minutes of new music and the possibility of a 4xLP. No word yet on when we will get hear the follow up to 2011′s Path of Totality. Check out the official statement below.
We here at American Aftermath are readying our very own year end lists, to be unleashed this Friday. We have asked some friends and musicians to submit their very own Best of 2012 List, which we will be posting throughout the week and here we go. Read on to find out what members of Tombs, Hooded Menace, Call Of The Void, Jungle Juice and Encrust were jamming to this year. Continue reading
Tombs have released a new track entitled “Ashes” that will be featured on the bonus flexidisc of the October 2012 Issue of Decibel Magazine. The song is very black metal inspired and can be quite crushing. However, I am not too crazy about the vocals. Stream the track below.
I really dig Tombs, Brooklyn’s… Well, very extreme metal band. These dudes cross so many genres that I still haven’t found a good place to label them. I was a big fan of their last album Path Of Totality, although I didn’t get around to listening to it until after year-end lists went live. It’s an amazing record and one song that really stood out to me on that album was “Passageways” and now, thanks to Scion A/V, we have a killer music video to go along with with it.
The video is great, seeing as it’s a standard “band-playing-live” video. Check it out below and enjoy. Tell us what you think in the comments section.
What can I say, 2011 was a very conflicted year for me musically. Sometimes I wanted to gaze off into an abyss and reflect on life with some lo-fi ambient black metal, and other times I wanted to pound ‘Gansetts on a beach listening to Havok with Swayze’s dead body dressed as Bodhi from Point Break (Weekend at Bernie’s style). Either way, it was a year of great music by some great people.
All I can say is, as you’ll see from this list, on any given day, I have no clue what I’m doing whatsoever. Judge away if you want to, but let’s be serious here, none of you actually ONLY listen to Aura Noir all day; well except for Bari. I’m a music fan first, and an elitist second, with that being said:
MY GODDAMNED TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2011. -Chris Alfieri
Until today, I didn’t know what Violitionist was. I’d heard the name around before, but never thought to act on it. It turns out that Violitionist is a website whose motto is “3 Questions. 3 Songs. This is what happened in Denton, Texas.” If that isn’t clear enough, the Violitionist asks a band/musician three questions and records three songs by the band in a living room in Denton, Texas. I haven’t watched any other sessions other than Tombs because I don’t know any of the other artists and I’m afraid of change, but these sessions seem pretty legit. These are great quality recordings and as an added bonus, you can download the sessions via Bandcamp. Pretty killer shit. Check out the video for “Bloodletters” below and you can see more here. Also, pick up Tombs’ latest album Path To Totality, out now on Relapse Records!

Well, there seem to be a lot of new albums currently streaming around the web, especially from the Relapse Records Roster. I’ve already listened to a few of these and some I am very eager to hear.
First off, Murder Construct’s debut EP is now streaming via MetalSucks.net. This album is fucking killer. What else would you expect from a band consisting of members of Cattle Decapitation, Bad Acid Trip, Exhumed and Fetus Eaters? Very gnar.
Broughton Rules are streaming their Relapse debut, Bounty Hunter 1853 now on BroughtonRules.info. I don’t know much about this band. They have an interesting sound. Not sure if I’m into it or not, might take a few listens to determine.
Control Denied’s The Fragile Art of Existence Reissue is currently streaming on ControlDenied.info. Be sure to check this out if you’ve never heard it. I mean, it’s fucking Chuck Schuldiner.
Misery Index are currently streaming their newest grind-fest, Heirs To Theivery at this location. Gnar be with you.
Tombs are streaming their collection of oldies, rarities and split-ies, Fear Is The Weapon right now on WinterHours.info.
One of the most excitable streams for me: Phobia’s Unrelenting is currently streaming via Lambgoat. It. Is. Fucking. Amazing. PHOBIA!
Last, but not least: Father Befouled have their newest piece of destruction, death and blasphemy, Morbid Destitution of Covenant exclusively at Zero Tolerance.
It is very likely some of these albums will make last minute additions to my Best of 2010 list, which will be posted December 1st.
