Members of Tomb Mold and Innumerable Forms Launch Dream Unending
Good news for fans of cavernous death metal and cataclysmic doom: straight from members of Tomb Mold and Innumerable Forms comes a new project that sounds kinda sorta like those bands!
Founders Derrick Vella (Tomb Mold) and Justin DeTore (Innumerable Forms) will release their debut album as Dream Unending, titled Tide Turns Eternal, on November 19 via 20 Buck Spin. And our first taste has arrived in the form of “In Cipher I Weep,” a nearly eight minute adventure that takes what both of the band’s founding members are best known for and slows it way the fuck down, sprinkled with lush doom atmospherics and, dare I say, a Pink Floydian sense of composition (in that middle section, anyway). It’s a ripper of a tune, and I think you’ll agree.
“’In Cipher I Weep’ was the first song we wrote. That must have been nearly 2 years ago now. Definitely the darkest song on the album. Intense lyrics. It leads off with that strange fretless bass, those dying flange harmonics, the vampiric harmonizing, the haunting organ (Thanks, Dad) and transforms into this spellbinding piece full of beauty only to be undone with the heaviest moment of the album. Justin’s vocals sound like the pillars of heaven crashing into the earth. It’s good stuff.”
I back that last assessment! Listen below. Pre-orders of Tide Turns Eternal will go live in October.
