The brand new album from Pelican is everything that you would want from an instrumental metal band. These guys from Chicago know how to blend a perfect metal/post-rock/punk sound to make an elegant music smoothie. The first several tracks are so sludgey and stonery and complete with great break downs and build ups. Then about mid-way through “Immutable Dusk” comes a very beautiful soft guitar build up through the heavy bass line. This album should be recognized as one of the best ones released this year so far and has certainly jumped towards the top of my list. Check out the song “Vestiges” as well.
