Tomb Mold & Innumerable Forms members create an immersive Death Doom dream/nightmare!
On first listen I thought this collaboration between Derrick Vella (Tomb Mold) and Justin DeTore (Innumerable Forms) might be as polarising as the one between Floating Points and Pharaoh Sanders! Having sat with a CD copy of Dream Unending - Tide Turns Eternal for a couple of months before the vinyl arrived the idea that this record might go either way, or be somewhat controversial, has been quashed.
The post-Barrett Pink Floyd at their most cavernous dynamic, Cocteau Twins moodiness and a Morricone-ish cinematic quality sitting amongst the Doom and Death Metal feel far from forced or a novelty. In fact the album feels wholly natural and immersive. While certainly it's own project, it almost expands upon the melodic, dare I ever say pretty aspect that pop out of Innumerable Forms and Tomb Mold's ugly starting point. 0% "shoegaze metal" detected. - Nic
