I thought this was nice:

"...The sound on these three videos is excellent. It’s immediate and it’s powerful and it’s hopeless. It embodies the conundrum that lurks in the light-sucking black hole of certain kinds of metal: How is it that we can love music that so effectively embodies a bottomless void, populated solely by the shrieking bodies of others falling alongside you, being sucked into the same gravity well of oblivion, engulfed by the same demonic rhythms as a final farewell? If you figure it out, let me know.

There’s a reason why the sound on these videos is so good: It’s because the performances were filmed at the Violitionist studios in Denton, Texas, on June 16. And what’s even better is that Tombs and Violitionist are making these live recordings available for free download..."

You can listen to and download all of the songs from the session at http://violitionist.com/2011/08/tombs/
