Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the Metal upstarts. Never before has a band generated such a huge buzz on the strength of a single demo release. With only a three-song self-released cassette to their name, Little Rock, Arkansas's Pallbearer have risen through the ranks of the Doom Metal scene with unprecedented speed. The group's sound recalls classic traditional Heavy Metal, taking cues not only from legendary Doom bands like Candlemass, Trouble and Warning, but also from '70s Prog and Hard Rock.

Customer Reviews

Seriously good music.
S. Marsh
Pallbearer's Sorrow and Extinction for me is one of the few entries in the doom metal sub-genre of metal that I can stand.
Mike
The vocal and twin lead guitars, crushing bass, and to-the-point drum accompaniment are skillfully done.

This is an absolutely captivating album, and even more impressive as it's a debut! Pallbearer create old-fashioned doom, with incredible vocals. The songs are LONG, but the riffs, the power, the beauty, all amazing. And singer Brett Campbell is a classic metal singer, no growling, all clean and powerful. And he is recorded as if his voice is struggling to be heard above the music, which is incredibly fitting and adds a unique dimension to this band. If you like doom, old school metal, or are just looking for an amazing new heavy music band to dig your teeth into...Pallbearer!

I'll say this up front - metal is not the primary genre of music I listen to. Don't get me wrong, this isn't my first foray into the genre, but I also don't wake up blasting Meshuggah. So, with that in mind

Pallbearer's Sorrow and Extinction is one of the finest metal albums I have heard in some time. I tend to think a lot of metal is gaudy and overdone, but this is refined and to-the-point, never wasting a note or filling time with worthless growling. What really sets this album apart is the great tone that Pallbearer has found - wonderfully crunchy guitar, beautiful drumming, and a great use of ensemble to bring you an album that is surprisingly "heavy" in tone, but is never rushed. In fact, they lumber through most of the album, in such a way it's almost a slow groove. Highly recommend

Along with the godly, "Deathhammer" by Asphyx, this is thusfar the best heavy metal album of 2012. Every idea birthed and executed from about 1970 to 2012 in the vein of classic gargantuan crushing is represented here. Like "Nucleus" by Dawnbringer, there are elements of every one of the last four decades of heavy music represented on this album, yet there is nothing "retro" or throwback about this record at all. Completely unstuck in time, completely timeless. A Glorious Burden, indeed.

Many doom bands try and correlate, vision, to pull on one's thoughts and to create emotion. Well, really all music that is good is required to promote these things. That is what I believe anyway. Pallbearer, is able to make the listener feel sorrow and hope with this particular album. The point is most bands can not do this. Pallbearer does this, and this is only their debut.
The production on this is excellent. As vocalist Brett Campbell seems as if he's singing from a distance, while the guitars, bass and drums are in the forefront. This may not seem like an important quality, but when you hear this, you'll hear what I mean. This entire record is soaked in reverb which adds even more to the sound. All of these band members play their instruments exceedingly well. I remember a while back hearing their 3-song demo, and thinking, I can't wait to hear their initial full-length. Well, here it is. And it's every thing I expected and hoped for. Pallbearer is certainly a band to pay attention to now and in the future.
I've heard many 2012 records so far, and I know it's very early in the year. But, as of this moment, Sorrow and Extinction is the album of the year for me. If you appreciate Traditional Doom this is one of the easiest buying desicions you'll make this year. Press buy now.....................

Epic yet intimate, heavy yet subtle, riff-driven yet not repetitious. Long, slow songs that build gradually to peaks of sonic power and emotional intensity. Steady inventiveness keeps the songs changing and growing. Doom often features a focus on a central riff that dominates the song and, even if it is excellent, it can be hammered on for so long that it loses power. Here, a strong riff might be played only a few times before the tune moves on to the next passage, with the result that this disc, though built upon heavy riffs, stands up well to repeated listenings and full-on headphones immersion.
I've been careful not to overplay it, but as far as I've heard Sorrow & Extinction just gets better.
If you like Doom, you simply have to check this out.

I don't care how hipster nor how bland live they are. What matteer is that this album rocks!

One of the beat US (I guess traditional) doom releases in years. The songs are long but they flow great and are not tiresome at all, which often happens to be the case wiht lengthy songs.

Production is clear and really suits the general atmosphere of the album.

Disregard the band image and press hype they received, this is a genuinely great metal/rock album so give it a try.

Only 5 tracks but each one is a real journey in themselves, but make no mistake about it, this is an album to listen to in its entirely to get the nice flow it has. Some very heavy sounding riffs sounding like very EARLY Sabbath (The Legion), with sprinkling of Pink Floyd at times(An Offering Of Grief, Given to the Grave). The vocal and twin lead guitars, crushing bass, and to-the-point drum accompaniment are skillfully done. Wish the vocals were mixed a little louder at times as they really work in tone of the album. This is a album that is both sorrowful and triumphant sounding. Worth giving a serious listen to even if you're not into doom metal. Seriously good stuff for the careful listener, as there's much to be found here.
