Thor’s Corner: Herculean Riff of the Day: Pelican, Mammoth

[I should really call this “Herculian Riff of the Minute.”]

I’m not sure exactly how they did it, and I’m not sure if I should reward them with this sort of notoriety, but this riff, tuned down five half-steps, entirely in B standard (it literally does not vary from one chord)– and seriously, Dear Pelican, how the fuck do you keep your guitars in tune? What gauge strings are you using?– is mind eraseingly-heavy (I live to make new adjectives). Wade in:

(The studio version, which is even clearer and irritatingly does not allow embeds, is here.)
