Heartless – Pallbearer (2xLP)
There it is finally: Pallbearer's third album. With »Heartless« the American doom metalers from Little Rock, Arkansas present the highly anticipated successor to »Foundations Of Burden« from 2014. Joseph D. Rowland (electric bass), Devin Holt (electric guitar), Brett Campbell (electric guitar, vocals) and Mark Lierly (drums) recorded all seven songs of »Heartless« last year. However, they got support from a real high-caliber: Joe Barresi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Tool, The Melvins) mixed the record. The name of the new album says it all: Heavy, melancholic and deeply sad songs await the listener. As far as music is concerned, no major changes in style are to be expected on »Heartless«. Luckily. Pallbearer's interplay and sound have continued to improve over the past ten years. This is also shown by the first two releases of the record, »Thorns« and »I Saw The End«.
