Brooklyn, New York’s TOMBS‘ are set to release their new album Savage Gold on June 10th (North America), June 9th (UK/Europe/World), and June 6th (Germany/Benelux/Finland). Renowned tattooist Thomas Hooper who is responsible for the band’s previous album covers created the stunning artwork (see below).
Singer Mike Hill spoke about “Deathtripper”: “I actually wrote the lyrics for this song back in the late 90’s when I was living in Boston. I was going through a period where I was sleeping on someone’s couch and living out of a gym bag. I went through some old journal entries and found the lyrics written out. They seemed to fit the vibe of the instrumental tracks.”
The first song released from the album “Edge of Darkness” can be heard on Soundcloud here or on YouTube here. Metal Injection is running a special selection of video content from TOMBS. This includes the first segment of a series about the history of TOMBS. Check it out here.
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.
Savage Gold is available for pre-order here. The album will be available in the following formats: Limited edition deluxe gold vinyl 2XLP (with expanded 12 page booklet featuring the graphic art of acclaimed tattoo artist Thomas Hooper), standard black vinyl 2XLP, CD and digital formats.
