I rarely listen to pure death metal these days, but this is gold. It's brutal but with interesting riff structures and rhythms, and enough occasional melody or doooooom to be entertaining. Vocals are straight from the abyssal plain.
Is it Doom Metal? Is it Death Metal? I'd say a little bit of both with the deep throated, crusty growls and the mathematical wizardry of the riffs and percussion. What impressed me the most was the atmosphere the band created on the album, I certainly got a visual with the intergalactic sci fi themes throughout. Good stuff.
Favorite track: Accelerative Phenomenae.
Recklessly devouring the world into a vortex of alternate dimensional planes with ‘Manor Of Infinite Forms’, Tomb Mold has crashed through boundaries with the impact of an ocean sized asteroid. Somewhere between outer space, inner space and the unseen dark matter in between all space they’ve devised an alchemical formula both crushingly oppressive and rapidly expanding outward in every direction.
Waking from stasis for the third time in three years, new record ‘Planetary Clairvoyance’ is the sum total of knowledge gained and aeons absorbed, concentrated into a single massive tome of arcane wisdom and implausible physics. Like the album’s cover art, it exists in a domain of alien anatomical abnormality, malign flora and cold void desolation, warping and deforming the familiar into unknown obscurity.
Tracked in Canada and then mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk once again, the amalgamation of the huge sound of ‘Manor Of Infinite Forms’ and the gritty particle chaos of ‘Primordial Malignity’ come into boundless unity on ‘Planetary Clairvoyance’. With the explosive weight of a collapsing black hole Tomb Mold accelerate unhinged toward infinite resurrection.
