These guys are deserving of your attention if you enjoy heavy rock / metal. Power trio from New England.

two weeks pass...

Listened to the album with live jazz in the background and it sounded a little like King Crimson

whoa I didn't know there's an Elder thread!

LORE is one of the great rock records of the decade.

and live, the band is *jaw-dropping*

I effused over Elder on one of the year-end metal poll threads, but I didn't know they had their own thread, haha. Never seen them live, and I live an hour from Boston. Also I had to buy my copy of Lore from Germany because I couldn't figure out how to get one from Armageddon Shop, which is within a three hour drive for me. I kind of hope this new one comes out on a real label instead of an underground record shop.

Pedal steel on the new one

it's funny these guys aren't more well known...seem like they would appeal to ppl who like Baroness, Mastodon or Pallbearer

I listen to them more than the first two of those, tbh. Haven't heard the new one yet, though.

To my ears they're in the same league as those three in terms of accessibility and mainstream appeal so yeah, not sure. They probably just need to stick around a bit longer and have some luck with publicity etc.

Thanks fast
Maybe I should buy this on cassette, I bet it would sound great

All four albums, plus the highly recommended Spires Burn EP are all available on the site too. Even back in 2012 seeing them live was life changing. They hit the fuzzy sweet spot and massage it with sub-bass tones like no other. I don't know why another label hasn't snatched them up, perhaps Elder prefer it this way? Would love it if they brought somewhat under appreciated Boston area band Magic Circle on their next US tour -- two very different approaches to doom.

I'm on my second listen of a preview stream of the new one, very happy with it.

jealous! Yo hook me up bra

i was a little put off when they sent a stream rather than a d/l ... but i'll get over it (and buy the LP) :)

i don't have time to really type out thoughts on this, but per this band getting a break, getting good pub, snatched up by a label, putting stuff out thru Armageddon, etc. ... i have my suspicions that they have a pretty atypical view of all that stuff (i.e. the business of being in a band).

i interviewed Nick once but didn't talk to him about it. if i ever get another chance, i'd ask him.
