Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, TOMBS have confirmed Savage Gold as the title of the band’s third album to be released via Relapse Records. The album is set for release on 10th June (North America), 9th June (UK/Europe/World), and 6th June (Germany/Benelux/Finland).
The stunning artwork was created by renowned tattooist Thomas Hooper who has created the band’s previous album covers.
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.
Once every few years a record comes along that sets a new benchmark for what can be done in heavy music. This is that moment and this is that record.
Savage Gold Track Listing:
6. Edge of Darkness
9. Severed Lives
