    oh man…that cover is bad….i am a massive Tombs fan and now i am afraid to listen to the Album….

    • That cover is most definitely not good.

      • Grymm

        Yeah, that cover was done in poor taste.*

        *-I’m absolutely kidding, btw. It is a meh cover, though.

        • HeavyMetalHamster

          Better than crucified vejay. ….

          • Grymm

            Oh, much!

          • Nukenado

            VaJesus was cheap, but this is Freedom Call – Master of Light levels of incompetence.

          • HeavyMetalHamster

            Metal Magic is still the benchmark for me ….

          • Nukenado

            Metal Magic, although doodle-y, uses pretty good colors.

    • Always bad when the band logo gets obscured by the cover art. Someone dropped the ball there.

      Good embedded track, but nothing that makes me want to listen to the rest of the disc anytime soon.

  • sir_c

    The embedded track sounds more like a Martin van Drunen coverband than a black metal band, to be honest. It does not really work for me.

  • Brent Johnson

    You scared me with the post rock description but I found the embedded track to be very listenable. Off to check out more.

    Savage Gold is a great album. Disappointing review Grymm, I’ll still check this out. With so many new people maybe this album is a bit of a settler… also that cover is oddly not good…

  • HeavyMetalHamster

    Ugh…..this review is so disappointing.
    All Empires Fall was one if my fav releases last year…..
    I loved the mash-up of styles.
    Was sure this would be their opus…

  • Juan Manuel Pinto Guerra

    That cover? Looks like one of the guys in the band made a doodle of the cover concept and sent it to the record label, then the record label used it as the definitive cover.

    • John Mosley

      It is shitty

  • HeavyMetalHamster

    Nah….I’m loving this album.
    3.5 min .

  • Juan Manuel Pinto Guerra

    I checked the link you provided and I’m even more baffled that this got used as the cover art.

    • Exactly. It’s not like the artist is crap, like at all.

  • Matthew

    Good review but I disagree, I’m *really* enjoying this album, though I do agree that the first half is the stronger half overall.

  • HeavyMetalHamster

    Can anyone confirm for me that he’s not singing “Liberace….do to me” during Old Wounds…..

  • DeadHead

    Seeing these guys with Incite and the mighty Crowbar tonight. I cant wait to hear this stuff live.
