Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Pallbearer/Tombs/Vattnet Viskar

When: Thu., Oct. 23, 9 p.m. 2014

When listening to Pallbearer, you can almost imagine yourself on a humid summer night in Little Rock, Arkansas, staring up in the sky in a state of deep contemplation. It might sound unpleasant, or even depressing, but then again, doom metal is about meditation and reflection, as well as a form of aggressive expression. With Pallbearer, the listener gets lyrical content that’s contemplative with a sense of mystical realism, coupled with punishing music that churns and drones. Their first album, Sorrow and Extinction, was critically acclaimed, bringing a lot of attention to the band. This year saw the release of their sophomore effort, Foundations of Burden, an album that proves it wasn't just beginner's luck. Singer and guitarist Brett Campbell, bassist Joseph Rowland, guitarist Devin Holt and drummer Mark Lierly are touring behind the new album and leaving converts in their wake. (Johnny Drop)
