Video: Tombs’ “Passageways”

TOMBS: Path of TotalityTombs: Path of Totality (Relapse, 6/7/11)

Brooklyn metal trio Tombs has released three full-length albums via Relapse Records, all to critical acclaim. Currently at the tail end of a European / North American tour promoting the most recent Path of Totality, the band is known for its dynamic, disparate influences that range from heartrendingly melodic to dense and chaotic.

Bearing baritone vocals that speak to post-hardcore influences, “Passageways” is a turning point on an album marked with well-orchestrated rises and falls. This new video accentuates the song’s sludgy, turbulent qualities with out-of-focus visuals and candle-lit smoke, making for an overall intense experience.
