I know Tombs, you know Tombs, we all should know Tombs by now. And if you know, you know that Tombs is never one to be beholden to one “true” sound. For each and every thing that has been released under the Tombs banner is somewhat different.
Now, with ‘Ex Oblivion’ Tombs have created an EP that changes from song to song. Definitely not the normal change in feeling you would normally get but much more drastic from track to track. From the “normal-ish”, for Tombs, opener to the Drone-ish closer you keep asking yourself; “Is this still Tombs or did it skip to something else”?
While the title track ‘Ex Oblivion’ is excellent and what you may somewhat expect from Tombs. The rest just feels like filler, to fill out an EP to be a vehicle to release ‘Ex Oblivion’ as an EP and not just a single. While it’s all pretty decent stuff; it just feels like there was stuff thrown together to make a release. Almost like a throw away to finish off a record deal. But in the end it’s really up to you. It’s Tombs. You know you’re gonna check it out and there is some good stuff here.
