Foundations Of Burden by Pallbearer, released 19 August 2014 1. Worlds Apart 2. Foundations 3. Watcher In The Dark 4. The Ghost I Used To Be 5. Ashes 6. Vanished In the short timespan that they’ve been a band, Little Rock Arkansas’ PALLBEARER have literally defined and set a new standard in the realm of modern-day doom metal. Their 3-song The Legend demo which was first released already had made a huge impression in itself amongst the doom metal scene. Now, with their new album Foundations Of Burden, PALLBEARER are prepared to take it to the next level unparalleled by creating an album much more advanced, moving, and sonically glorious than their debut. If Sorrow and Extinction created massive waves in the metal scene, Foundations Of Burden will create the stuff of legends.

Foundations of Burden" isn't just a heavy album because of its down-tuned riffs and thick production; it has feeling. Many criticize Pallbearer for not exactly reinventing the wheel when it comes to doom metal, but to me, that is missing the point. Pallbearer aren't trying to break some new ground in the vast world of heavy metal. When I heard that the album had dropped, I was very skeptical.

Foundations of Burden from start to finish is lush and rhythmic. Filled to the brim with crunchy guitar tones, groove-inducing rhythms and a slow yet staggering sense of dynamics in song composition. Everything on Foundations of Burden is bigger than its predecessor, Sorrow and Extinction-the riffs hit harder, the vocals convey more emotion, the bass is thicker and the drums are more bombastic.

Foundations of Burden is the second full-length album by the American doom metal band Pallbearer. It was released on August 19, 2014 by Profound Lore Records. All songs written and composed by Pallbearer. Brett Campbell - lead vocals, guitar, composer, lyricist

Foundations of Burden has chosen to hone in on those moments of hope and illumination, in an effort that is even more emotionally ambitious an undertaking, and all the more wounding for its beauty. As a sophomore album, it does everything it needs to do to keep Pallbearer’s status as being elites in their genre.

Foundations of Burden is an album you need to clear your schedule for. You are not just going to throw this album on in the car while running errands around town, turning it on and off, and turning the volume up and down while you take phone calls. No, Foundations demands your full attention. Not because it is a hard album to understand or details that you need to pick apart, but for you to fully enjoy it you have to let yourself be immersed in the music. I found this to be the perfect album to throw on my headphones and listen to from start to finish while in the dark laying in bed before I went to sleep. Foundations of Burden is truly epic. I don't subscribe to the notion that I newer age album or group cannot be put into the class of the "legends" of a certain genre, or that you MUST put old school albums ahead of anything new, Foundations of Burden for my money is the best doom album I have ever heard. There are so many songs or albums where you can actually feel the emotion through the music and this is one of them. It actually becomes somewhat of an experience listening to it. There is emotion all over this album from sad and hopeless to almost seeing the shining light at the end of the bleak dark tunnel. The melodic parts on this album are absolutely phenomenal and are what separate Paullbearer from the rest of the crop of doom metal bands. Most doom bands with the exception of a few are prone to just going as dark and heavy as they can, never shedding that front of misery to offer an emotional melodic experience in their recordings. This album was highly anticipated but it not only delivers, but it soars past the debut album. One of the best albums I have ever heard. Period. My favorite song on the album has to go to "Watcher in the Dark" it is a pure masterpiece.

The band’s second album Foundations of Burden is essentially a replica of the first. With 4 songs out of 6 clocking over 10 minutes, the album is filled with enormous, low riffs impossible to follow even despite the good sound engineering. The songs simply lack immediacy and gusto, and even the shorter interlude “Ashes” fails to be completely enjoyable, with its Post-Rock arrangements. “The Ghost That I Used to Be” features gang vocal choruses and more acute vocals than usual, and “Vanished” reaches the tempo of Funeral Doom. Unfortunately, the material is much inferior to the band’s debut.Highlights: “The Ghost That I Used to Be”.

Favorite Tracks: 1. Worlds Apart 3. Watcher in the Dark
