Tombs Exclaim! TV Aggressive Tendencies
Blackened experimentalists Tombs' music is as gloomy as their name suggests, but crafted with a brilliant shine that's reflected in the title of their latest record, Savage Gold. This dichotomy extends itself to the personality of bandleader and guitarist/vocalist Mike Hill, who spoke with us about the deadly inspiration behind their new album during a recent interview with Exclaim! TV's Aggressive Tendencies.

Listening to Savage Gold, you'd certainly hear the first bit — if the album is anything, it's definitely savage — but its sonically silver gold lining is truly what defines the album. Hill talked with us about the personal philosophy that inspired the album, his views on death as a transformation, alchemy, expanding the band's sound and more.

Watch the interview below and then listen to their latest masterpiece here.
