Nuclear Blast
Released Year:
1. Dropout

I’m not a big fan of reviewing singles or EPs as most of the time there’s not enough time for me to grasp what the band (or album) is all about. However, this time I decided to make an exception after listening to PALLBEARER’s new digital single. “Dropout” was released as part of the Adult Swim Single series – to be honest I’ve never heard of these series before – and had that little something that puts you in the zone.

The band has come a long way since its formation back in 2010 and this is being reflected on their music throughout time. I dare to say I was blown away by their 2012 debut album, “Sorrow and Extinction”, and was hooked to the band’s music ever since. Their two follow-up albums, “Foundations of Burden” and “Heartless”, were more than enough to validate my initial reaction. “Dropout”, however, deviates a bit from the norm of these albums, focusing more on building soundscapes and melodies than heavy riffs. A bit different, but still good IMHO.

PALLBEARER’s music is heavy, dark, emotional and puts you in desolate places that feel familiar nonetheless. Despite being tagged as a traditional doom metal band by many, they bring more to the table than your average band of the genre.

Interview with HORIZON’S END

Speaking with HORIZON'S END mastermind - Sakis Bandis (keyboards) is a beautiful adventure, like each and every listen to each and every of their songs. There were really a lot of things to be discussed, as this is the very first interview that took place after the band's reunion. There is new music, there is this sudden (or not so sudden?) comeback, there is an album that was recorded but never released and a whole band that was put on ice many moons ago. Sakis spread some light to all those topics that waited for years to be clarified and to many new ones, as a new journey to the end of an infinite horizon has already started!
