Good heavy riffs, reminds me of Black Sabbath, Killing Joke, Sound Garden. Tracks are long and progressive, vocals are few but effective. Deep growling bass lines allow you to put the volume up on your headphones without getting an earful of treble. This is the bands first full length album released in 2008 so it sounds a bit experimental compares to the two later works, which are also worth grabbing.

This is an excellent record. If you like any early metal stuff like Black Sabbath and Motorhead then you will probably like this; the actual music herein may be heavier and more experiemental, but it captures that mood perfectly.

How does it sound? Well it sounds like any other sludge/stoner type release really. Electric Wizard is a good parallel in terms of production and heaviness and groove. Bags and bags of awesome riffs to be found here; great construction, great songs.

Vocals? Quite throaty and harsh, but it works very well. Think somewhere between Lemmy and Max Cavalera, in a High on Fire type of style and you've about hit it. Fits with the style of music and sounds good.

Lyrics? Varied from Spacey Stonery stuff to medieval warriory stuff. It all works and it's all good (in my opinion)

Recommended? Yes, to any rock or metal fan, if you like your Sabbath-esque stoner music then you'll love this.

More doom/sludge crossovers for you. This time, we're dealing with an American band, rather new to the scene, called Elder. Since their 2008 arrival with their self-titled piece, Elder have gained notoriety and praise for their strange appealing soundscapes which also seem to incorporate some sort of stoner influence, particularly in the guitars and vocals. The band, consisting of three members, has actually been around for a few years now, but this is the first full-length effort. I've not heard any previous material, so no comparisons can be made, which is a shame as I'd like to take note of the evolution of the band. Considering the band has faced line-up changes, in the form of replacing the departed bassist, it would be interesting to see where Elder originated, in musical terms, and compare it to where they are now, but that's not going to happen folks. This self-titled piece marks an influx of doom records this year. In my eyes, 2008 has shined down upon the genre giving it a number of excellent records to shower on its fans who had high hopes after the success of 2007, which was an all round great year for metal. Elder's record doesn't match the best I've heard from this sort of sub-genre, or crossover act, but it is particularly good in certain areas, namely bass and guitar. The production is also well produced. It doesn't allow the music to sound stiff, or rigid. The instrumentation doesn't suffer from the sufficient amount of bass or distorted work, which is pleasing. If there is one aspect to look out for, its the bass for its construction of mammoth sounds.

This self-titled piece is strange. It says that Elder are a doom metal band who incorporate sludge parts into their music, but I don't feel that way myself.
