Brings back memories of Pelican's first album
COMMENTS:
Florida's instrumental 5-piece is back with their third full-length album, Reflectionless. This is a foray into post-metal that brings back memories of Pelican's first album. "Saudade", the first track, starts off with what sounds like a swarm of harmonious bees coupled with dual drummers, the use of double bass in the song sets it apart from most post metal. This band knows how to weave slow acoustic parts, "Specular Wavefront Of", with sludge--"The Mirrored Self". The shining track is the last track, "Ephemerality". The dual drumming pops out of the recording and really shines with the rest of the band. Excellent release by Set and Setting.
