Full Album Stream: Tombstoner – “Rot Stink Rip”

This post was originally published on this site

With a band name like Tombstoner, one would normally expect to hear sluggish Sabbath or Sleep worship. Fortunately, Tombstoner are the exact opposite of that. The New York death metal unit hail from Staten Island are straight-up killers, blending their riff-centric death metal with strains of grindcore and thrash for a groovy, fast-paced time. Their second album, Rot Stink Rip, comes three years after their debut and sees the band tighten up their writing while upping the intensity factor.

The influence from Power Trip and Pig Destroyer is immediately felt on Rot Stink Rip, from the slow, ominous intro “Execution Bell” to the spastic riffs of the title track and the dual vocal approach found throughout the album. The dual guitar/dual vocal approach, plus punchy-as-fuck production and mastering from Ben Karras, makes everything heavier, adding an extra punch to the already rock solid musicianship.

“Two years ago we decided to write an album, so we produced the second biggest dump on Staten Island,” said vocalist/bassist Tommy Tombstoner, referencing the Fresh Kills Landfill in Staten Island. “This one STINKS too.”
