Pallbearer, Sorrow and Extinction

Pallbearer, Sorrow and Extinction, coverPallbearer are Candlemass, if they were John D. Cronise’s baby from Austin, TX rather than Leif Edling’s from Stockholm, Sweden. Sorrow and Extinction, on Profound Lore, has a scruffy, low-fi, hipster solemn majesty about it; one quasi-religious, madrigal-like, evoking monks and monasteries and ascetics and deep, grave reverence.

If garage Black Sabbath cover bands played funerals, this it what it would sound like.
