    One of my favorite bands of the last few years, but I think I actually prefer the more straight-ahead sound of albums like "Lore" and my personal favorite "Dead Roots Stirring". Just saw them last month and they delivered a very polished, well rehearsed set. But with 3 bands on the ticket and a curfew with the venue, I felt the show was a little short, hurried, and cold. Saw them a few years prior and the band seemed to engage the audience more.

    I'm with you on this, Yves. As a stoner/doom band I thought they were truly exceptional; as a more 'progressive' band they're interesting, but the magic's gone for me. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing co-headlining set with Pallbearer next month.

    ^^^I guess I'll have to be on the other side of the fence here. I prefer the last two full length albums - Reflections of a Floating World and Omens - to the earlier predominately stoner/doom stuff. It may have something to do with the fact that I discovered the band with Reflections, and it blew me away.

    This is where I'm at as well although I started with Lore which made me an instant fan. I love the instrumental adventures they go on with every song on the last two albums. Floating is definitely my favorite of the bunch, but they're all good.

    Same here, Floating is great and the best of the bunch of later albums ... for me of course. If you like instrumental portions of these late ones you may want to look into Nick DiSalvo's solo album Hirschbrunnen under the name Delving.

    Oh yeah I love that one too. Very different. Their collaboration with Kadavar (Eldovar) is pretty awesome as well.

    Absolutely agree on Eldovar

    Seems both Elder and Kadavar are moving away from their early hard / stone rock roots to more complex, more progressive forms. While the early albums are still great within the genre, these latter ones are more engaging. Did not like Kadavar's album For The Dead Travel Fast from 2019, but their last studio one - The Isolation Tapes (2CD edition), is quite interesting, very diverse with instrumental and progressive / space rock elements and then with some ... yes, pop moments. Pretty hard to believe it is the same band bt still quite interesting.

    I am listening to Dead Roots Stirring right now and it's pushing my buttons. I prefer the last three albums but there's some great textures and riffs in this.

    You can also listen to a track from the new one there if you’re so inclined. (What? Anyone on the fence with this? Come on now!)

    I'll take the plunge next Friday when it's Bandcamp Friday. I have it streaming now and while I am not hearing anything new, it is a band at the height of their powers.

    yes, that sums it up perfectly. They seem to be settling more and more into their own, distinct sound. Hats off to the band for this new, excellent record.

    I wouldn't say distinct. This record is great but they've really incorporated much of the modern Motorpsycho sound. Three of the tracks here really sound like outtakes from Little Lucid Moments.

    Those krautrock, motorik beats that the band explored on the Gold and Silver Sessions (and DiSalvo further delved into on Hirscchbrunnen) are more prominent on this new one. Unending rhythmic lines explode in fuzzed out glory.

    That is to say, yeah, I’m digging the fuck out of this one.
