Pallbearer — Foundations of Burden

Estimated reading time: 1 minute(s)

★★★☆ It’s not often that a doom metal band show any sign of progressive leanings, but that’s definitely the case on this album. You definitely get the elegiac heft of a proper doom work, but at the same time you can hear an empowered directionality to the band’s wanderings, making Pallbearer sound more like Isis or Sleep than Crowbar.
