Rising from the ashes of Seventh Void and with roots in NY legends Type O Negative and Agnostic Front, Silvertomb is tough enough to survive and make its dent in the metal scene. While recording this album, most of the band never quit their blue-collar union jobs. They live metal the only way you can 🤘 by sticking to your roots & never giving up. This theme of tenacity and survival is evident in their debut album Edge of Existence.
