Tombstoned: II

Album Review

Finnish doom crew find new realms of darkness to explore

Aiming to mirror the harsh times we’re living in and to push the boundaries of the doom genre, Tombstoned’s second record, which they’ve handily dubbed II, is a bewitching slab of Black-Sabbath-meets-Echo-And-The-Bunnymen goodness.

Recorded with vintage gear and on reel-to-reel tape, it’s a more focused affair than their critically acclaimed eponymous 2013 debut. It doesn’t try to dazzle the listener with too many ideas, preferring to rely on its strengths: head-crushing riffs and gorgeous, gloomy melodies.
