Dark, Damp Passageways: TOMBS Release New Music Video

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.

This Path Is The Right One: TOMBS Mourning Jam

Good mourning, faithful readers. This morning I wanted to kick things off with Tombs‘ latest album Path Of Totality because this record is amazing and it’s actually one I sort of slept on last year when it was released. It’s great… whatever Tombs is classified as. Sit back and enjoy.

Now Playing… : Relapse Records Edition

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 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 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 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




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.
