This band has easily become the band that has finally convinced me to get into sludge/doom/drone metal, i always liked bands like Crowbar, but this band is just too good they've got me hooked, their name is fitting to the haunting sound and this type o negative cover is just absolutely fantastic, heartless and dropout are great pieces of work im glad to add this gem to my collection
Favorite track: Love You To Death.
Pallbearer is an American colossus, rooted in doom metal but shaping their own musical paradigm unfettered by the confines of genre. Initially formed in Little Rock, AR by Joseph D Rowland (bass) and Brett Campbell (vocals / guitars) and later Joined by Devin Holt (guitar), the line up was solidified by the addition of Mark Lierly (drums) after the recording of their debut LP.
That album, 2012’s Sorrow and Extinction, captured the primal heaviness of the band’s live show but expanded beyond a reliance on pure volume. It wavers beautifully between subdued introspection and towering aural force.
2014’s Foundations of Burden built on the groundwork of their debut, evoking a complex melodic consciousness, each song imbued with a weight of devastating melancholy. Produced and mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Agalloch, Red House Painters), the album saw Pallbearer forging it’s own brilliantly desolate path, seeking balance at the very threshold of an unforgiving void.
Fear and Fury is their latest release. A strictly limited, beautifully packaged 12” comprised of three tracks: a remastered version of the band's titular 2015 single and cover versions of Black Sabbath's Over and Over and Type O Negative's Love You To Death.

this song is an hour and a half of tension and atmosphere. the fact that a part of it is dedicated to a late band member makes it even sadder. if you have that long to listen to an album I would highly recommend it katsumashi
