Tombstoner – Victims Of Vile Torture



  1. Regarding the use of a saxophone in metal, my theory is that it boils down to nothing more than a trend. Someone has success doing something, then there becomes a following of that thing. Periphery had success using 7 or 8 string guitars making that djent-y sound, then other bands follow suit. Rivers of Nihil has some recent success when they introduced a saxophone, so now the copycats have commenced. Neither of those aforementioned bands invented the thing they popularized, but those bands started the trend.

    As for Burial in the Sky, one thing I do like me in my death metal is some contrast. Burial in the Sky at least provides that. I will grant you that the production does seem a bit weird without me being able to fully put my finger on it beyond what you already noted. But it’s that THAT bad to warrant a rating of a 1. You are at least proving the adage that there’s no such thing as bad publicity because you giving it a 1 has made me listen to it more than the cursory listen I previously gave this album.

    1. I think there was more than the production that made Nick give it a one. Lol. But, good point about publicity

      And I guess you’re right about sax being a “trend”. Like DJs in bands popularized in nu-metal. I guess the difference is I liked djent a bit even if you got some samey bands. I’m the sax, for me, is more miss than hit.
