Formed in 2007 as a collaboration between Mike Hill (Anodyne), Dominic Seita (Speedloader), and Justin Ennis (the Heuristic), Brooklyn, New York-based, experimental metal outfit Tombs blends bleak, post-rock minimalism with the ferocious attack of sludge and classic black metal. The group's dark proto-industrial sounds were first put to wax that year in the form of a two-song EP simply entitled Tombs, and by the time the group got around to unleashing a proper full-length for Relapse, 2009â€™s Winter Hours, Seita and Ennis had been replaced with Carson James and Andrew Hernandez (Asra), respectively. The bandâ€™s sophomore outing, 2011â€™s Paths of Totality, was produced by John Congleton (Baroness, Explosions in the Sky), and featured prominently on many criticsâ€™ year-end metal lists. ~ James Christopher MongerPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
