Boomkat Product Review:
New Vinyl Edition
Following on from their Ephemeral EP, Pelican return to Southern Lord with a first full-length for the label, and it might be the most broadly accessible body of work in their career to date, getting underway with the post-metal overture of 'Glimmer' - a great heavy rock instrumental that's packed with melody and hard-hitting, detuned riffs that avoids getting bogged down in sludge.
The higher register, cleaner toned guitar arpeggios give the track an epic quality that's admittedly rather commercial sounding but never at the expense of compromising on power. Reinstating a certain amount of grit and darkness is 'The Creeper', which leads into the segmented brilliance of that aforementioned single 'Ephemeral', completing an impeccable opening triptych.
The album occasionally runs into danger of repeating itself as the tracklist goes on, but this can all be forgiven once the final two tracks are engaged - the soaringly tuneful title track and the vocally-enhanced closer 'Final Breath'.
