Pelican - s/t

Hydra Head, 2003, CD, Vinyl with different versons where the lettering is a different colour on the label

Four great instrumental tracks between 4 and 12 minutes in length by these pioneers of this heavy, doomy post-metal sound.

There are no vocals anywhere. The band create such epic soundscapes with the heavy, doomy riffing that it feels like any vocals would not work as it might draw attention away from the music. The layers of heavy, thick, prophetic sounding pieces barrage the listener with an aura that only a band like this can create. You feel like you have visited some place far away that held some special significance or was some landmark of a great battle. They manage to bring subtley and heaviness together in every track and it always feels like it is going somewhere rather than some dull plodding sludge burden.
