Boomkat Product Review:
Chicago post-metal titans Pelican return with a new EP on Southern Lord, the long-awaited follow-up to 2009's What We All Come To Need. On opener 'Ataraxia' they ease us in gently, essaying a scorched-earth blues not dissimilar to that perfected in recent years by their labelmates and elders Earth. Unlike Dylan Carlson's outfit, though, Pelican haven't entirely left tear-out metal tropes behind, as evident on 'Lathe Biosas', a song which combines all the complexity and structural ingenuity of the finest math-rock with seriously heavy, molte riffage. 'Parasite Colony''s low-slung doom is completely irresistible, probably the finest showcase on this EP of Trevor de Brauw and Laurent Schroeder-Lebec's guitar chops, while 'Taraxis' makes a slight return to desert ambience only to arrive at a coda as head-crushingly intense as anything in the Pelican back catalogue.
