20 Buck Spin presents the anxiously-awaited second full-length recorded slaughter by Ontario-based death metal outfit, TOMB MOLD. Set for release in early June, the label has dispatched the first single, “Abysswalker,” alongside the album’s track listing, its grotesque artwork, and preorder options. The band has also confirmed a North American tour with Of Feather And Bone.
Tracked in Toronto, Manor Of Infinite Forms then landed in the hands of Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Pissgrave, Code Orange) for mixing and mastering to achieve its organically huge mix, and completed with appropriately weird artwork by Brad Moore (Morpheus Descends, Organic Infest). A remarkable puzzle of an album, Manor Of Infinite Forms constitutes a creative high point for 2018’s many strong death metal releases.
Manor Of Infinite Forms Track Listing:
1. Manor Of Infinite Forms
2. Blood Mirror
4. Final Struggle Of Selves
5. Gored Embrace (Confronting Biodegradation)
6. Chamber Of Sacred Ootheca
7. Two Worlds Become One
TOMB MOLD has booked a North American tour with Of Feather And Bone which hits the Southwest for Austin Terror Fest on June 15th alongside Yob, 40 Watt Sun, Bell Witch, Pinkish Black, Sixes, and more, then rips through the Southern region and up the East Coast into Canada, ending in their hometown on June 26th. July will see TOMB MOLD taking part in Migration Festival in Pittsburgh, alongside Zombi, Mournful Congregation, Pelican, Bongripper, Krallice, Khemmis, Deadbird, and more. A set at Quebec Deathfest in October is confirmed, and additional tour dates are to be expected.

Bubbling up from the oozing sewers of Toronto like a bizarre insectoid of mutant genotype, TOMB MOLD reanimates with their second album, and first for 20 Buck Spin, Manor Of Infinite Forms. Constructing monumental towers of obscure shape, jarring yet coherent, TOMB MOLD 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.
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.
