Blabbermouth's description of 2007 sophomore album Cryptic Implosion as "an awe-inspiring slab of accomplished death metal aggression," is even more applicable to Synesthesia. Avoiding the clinical sterility of many modern death metal productions, the band created a sound on Synesthesia that is raw, robust, and infused with an authentic old school spirit.

There's an absolute wall of death metal density to unpack. Almost every track is an assiduous assault of cosmic horror and there's little to no useless bulk on this album -- it's so compact, so air tight, and so focused on delivering an Alien-inspired listening experience.
There's a lot of reverence for bands of old while still sounding new. Tomb Mold are truly at the top of the heap of a 2019 that was filled with incredible death metal. cvltcorgi888
