TOMBSTONES
‘Red Skies And Dead Eyes’
Soulseller Records, 2013
8/10

Spectacular drumming, bass lines that’ll tear your heart out and moments of grim grooviness raise this album far above the average. The slow, sludgy songs  have a hypnotising quality, in the vein of Ramesses, while the crisp production (Billy Anderson, take another bow) brings out the band’s energy like never before. Tombstones’ music is not groundbreaking enough to raise the dead… but they write really good, heartfelt songs that ripple with misery. Best track: ‘Black Moon’.
