As this is your first interview on Metal Invader, please give us a small bio of the band.
Tomb Mold is a Canadian Death Metal band from Ontario. We try to blend technicality and mid pace ferocity in hopes to create something that is engaging as well as heavy.
Your sound has many European death metal influences. Which bands influenced you? Do you have other influences besides heavy metal?
All music is an influence. We listen to everything ranging from metal to jazz to ambient to pop music. You can take inspiration from everything. That is the true beauty of music. As far as european metal bands that influenced us, Demilich, Demigod and Adramelech are the big 3.
‘Planetary Clairvoyance’ is your sophomore studio album on 20 Buck Spin, and will be out in a month, yet only 12 months after your debut. Do you feel that your debut has made its circle?
“Manor of Infinite Forms“ was our debut on 20 Buck Spin, but we released “Primordial Malignity” before that on Blood Harvest. I’m not sure if its made its circle, but we aren’t willing to wait around to keep creating music.
Tell us more about the recordings and the writing procedure.
We’ve recorded the last 2 LPs with Sean Pearson at Boxcar Studios and had them mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk. Both offer a different sound from the other. All of the songs are written by me initially, and then brought to the band to flesh out and add final touches (like solos and whatnot). We recorded the album in 3 days.
Tell us more about the artwork cover and its title.
The album title is about consciousness on a cosmic level. The album cover was done by Jesse Jacobi. He goes by Pit of Bones as well.
What are the lyrics about?
Planets folding in on themselves, alien bioweaponry, spirit worlds, stuff like that!
How easy is to make a statement in your songs?
It can be difficult but if you’re trying to say something personal through cosmic or gore-laced imagery, it will be lost on the listener, but as long as you get personal satisfaction from it, thats all that matters.
Do you plan on touring? Do you prefer small clubs or big festivals to perform?
I almost always prefer small clubs. Much more fun. We’ll be touring the USA in July and Europe in September!
What does future holds for Tomb Mold?
Not sure to be honest! Just enjoying the ride at the moment!
Thanks you for your time, last words are yours…
Thanks for reaching out to us! We’re excited for everyone to hear the new record. We love it.
