Staff review by

Tombs hail from Brooklyn, New York. Some 3,000+ miles to the east you will find France. Some 3,000 miles to the west you find yourself in the bay area of San Francisco and Oakland, California.

What on Earth does this geography lesson have to do with Tombs' Winter Hours release? Just as Brooklyn lies somewhere in the middle of France and the Bay Area, the music of Tombs lies somewhere in between that of France's Deathspell Omega and Oakland's Neurosis. Winter Hours manages to combine the ferocity and atmosphere of black metal with the crushing density of noisecore sludge. The approach sees them navigating back and forth between styles, sometimes blurring lines, rather than trying to force both sounds together into one product.

I think I like this more than their second album.
