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.
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.....................
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
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.

Huge droning riffs, heavy both in sonic heft and emotion, sorrow filled vocals that invoke defeat and despair. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Maura
