Elder - Dead Roots Stirring

Meteorcity, 2011

"Elder describe themselves as "a sonic interpretation of the forces that surround us; the pounding waves of ancient seas, the weight of stone colossi rising up from the earth and the endlessness of inflamed, majestic skies." Dead Roots Stirring, their second album since 2009, proves their poetic self-description is truth. Elder's balance of doom-heavy bombast, bulky metal, and stoner rock has been perfected, translating their riff-heavy debut for long, structured monoliths of massive, slow-burning charcoaled incense. "The waves of ancient seas" act as the foundation in which their songs are layered upon, "the weight of stone colossi rising up from the earth" as the copious, blackened adrenaline of their massive guitar riffs, and "the endlessness of inflamed, majestic skies" as the mythic, earth-toned atmosphere signaled from their self-created, smoke filled sky above." - Olive music

I liked your earlier stoner rock recommendations, so I'm glad that there is another new band with "Elder" to explore. Thank you!
