Revolver Magazine has taken the lead on issuing the opening title track to Manor Of Infinite Forms, the noxious second album by Ontario-based putrid death metal horde, TOMB MOLD. The album lies rotting, awaiting its release in early June through 20 Buck Spin, when the band will caravan it across the continent on tour with their brethren in Of Feather And Bone.
TOMB MOLD’s anxiously awaited Manor Of Infinite Forms arrives like a bizarre insectoid of mutant genotype, constructing monumental towers of obscure shape, jarring yet coherent. The band’s compositions evoke a distorted world alongside our own where all manner of oddity and peculiarity are permitted. The band’s prior LP, Primordial Malignity, was named in Spin’s 25 Best Metal Songs Of 2017, and Manor Of Infinite Forms itself was included in Decibel Magazine’s Most Anticipated Albums Of 2018.
With the new single’s debut, Revolver Magazine reports, “the band has dropped another single, this time the title track and album opener ‘Manor of Infinite Forms,’ which starts out at half speed with a particularly harsh opening riff before opening into a blasting hellscape that shifts and changes, never settling into a groove long enough to get comfortable.”
TOMB MOLD’s Derrick Vella offers of the song, “The title track opens the record and helps lay the setting for the universe in which this record exists. It’s about dissolving the wall between us and the 4th dimension.”

Tracked In Toronto, then mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Pissgrave, Code Orange) to achieve its organically huge mix, TOMB MOLD’s Manor Of Infinite Forms is draped in ppropriately weird artwork by Brad Moore (Morpheus Descends, Organic Infest).
20 Buck Spin will release Manor Of Infinite Forms on LP, CD, cassette, and digital formats on June 8th; find preorders are the label’s webshop HERE and Bandcamp where “Abysswalker” is also on display HERE.

July will see TOMB MOLD taking part in Migration Festival in Pittsburgh, alongside Zombi, Mournful Congregation, Pelican, Bongripper, Krallice, Khemmis, Deadbird, and more.

Songs on Manor Of Infinite Forms move in strange ways, recklessly contorting into cohesion until suddenly they’re proceeding with a force and purpose in perfect synchronicity to the universe that contains them. Disharmoniously melding the pulverizing heaviness of Finnish death metal with a never overbearing striking technicality, TOMB MOLD careens through world after world of alien landscape with formidable singularity. Fans of Demilich, Cthellist, Demigod, Timeghoul, Gorguts, Adramlech, Blood Incantation, Convulse, and the like, tune in. A remarkable puzzle of an album, Manor Of Infinite Forms constitutes a creative high point for 2018’s many strong death metal releases.
