Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Justin Ennis (drums).
  • Audio Mixer: Ian Whalen.
  • Audio Remasterer: Alan Douches.
  • Recording information: Etching Tin Studios, Richmond, VA (08/2008).
  • Brooklyn's muscular Tombs play a style of hardcore derived from the brawny rumble of Black Flag and the low-end thunder of the Melvins, but there's a significant artfulness to their chaos as well. The sheets of atmospheric noise on songs like "The Divide" owe more to English bands like My Bloody Valentine than punk, and the audible darkness on "Filled With Secrets" and "Story of a Room" reflect the influence of demanding post-punk like Swans. All of which adds up to say that as punishing as Tombs can be, their music is layered in ways that belie simple description.
Professional Reviews
Pitchfork (Website) - "[The album] peaks with 'Merrimack', an epically lacerating blast of animosity that abruptly ends before it hits the four-minute mark. It opens with a really pretty, scratchy, warm guitar haze, but it doesn't stay there long."
