Sorrow And Extinction
Album: Sorrow And Extinction
Release Date: 21/2/2012
An impressive and atmospheric debut from the Arkansas doom metallers
In this day and age of a very fickle music industry, few albums do what their title suggests, but in calling their debut "Sorrow And Extinction" Arkansas doom- metal newcomers Pallbearer have summed up their music pretty accurately. A slow- burning soundtrack to post- apocolyptic desolation, "Sorrow And Extinction" marries the dirge of downtuned, crushingly heavy sludge with an epic yet mournful sense of melody, a marriage that they consistenly carry throughout. With every song surpassing the 8- minute mark, patience is certainly needed, but there is atmosphere in abundance here.
