Australasia
Colored Vinyl - hh666-75
Beautiful 2012 2LP Limited Edition RSD Reissue, Pressed On Transparent Orange "Gold" Vinyl. Housed In A Heavy-Duty Matte Texture Gatefold Jacket. Includes Full Color Track List/Credits Insert. Glossy LP's. "Although They Already Released A Self-titled Ep That Was Longer Than Many Bands' Regular Albums, Australasia Is The First Official Full-length By Chicago Art-metal Instrumentalists Pelican. It's Maybe Too Easy To Draw Comparisons To Isis, Especially Since That Band's Aaron Turner Signed Them And Released This Album On His Label, But There Are Similarities: The Layered Guitars, The Sense Of Dynamics, And The Expansive, Slowly Unfolding Songwriting Approach. One Major Difference Is That While Isis Uses Vocals, Sparingly At Least, Pelican Don't Use Any Vocals. Another Difference Is That Their Songs Actually Veer Into Major Keys For Extended Periods. Still, There Is Plenty Of Darker Minor-key Riffing As Well, The Band Splitting The Difference Between Sabbath-melvins-neurosis-style Heaviness And More Post-rock Epic Tendencies. This Cd Has Six Tracks, Clocking In At Around Eight Or Nine Minutes Apiece, And Apart From One Acoustic Guitar/piano Interlude, There's Not A Huge Deal Of Variety Over The Course Of The Album. They Do Basically One Thing, But They Do It Well. Australasia Will Likely Please Most Aficionados Of Hydra Head's Growing Roster Of "Instru-metal" Talents, As Well As That Subset Of Indie/post-rock Listeners Who Are Interested In Metal/hardcore Music But Tend To Dislike The Vocals."

Forever Becoming
Used - LP - LORD 182
2013 2LP Gatefold Black Vinyl Original. Both Records Appear Glossy. Cover Has Slight Bump. "While It's Possible For An Instrumental Band To Coast Along By Making Their Albums Frenzied Celebrations Of The Fine Art Of The Guitar Riff, The Slower, More Thoughtful Tempo Of Pelican's Glacial Metal Instrumentals Has Required Them To Be A Cut Above The Rest. On Forever Becoming, The Fifth Album From The Band, As Well As The First Not To Feature Founding Guitarist Laurent Lebec (Who Was Replaced By Touring Guitarist Dallas Thomas After An Amicable Split With The Band), The Quartet Create A Series Of Musical Journeys For Listener's To Embark Upon, Creating Songs That, While Slow, Have A Feeling Of Movement About Them. This Helps To Give Pelican's Sprawling Epics A Sense Of Momentum That Allows The Songs To Feel Inviting Rather Than Impenetrable. Where They Have Really Refined Their Craft, However, Is In Their Pacing. Where Their Earlier Work Often Found Them Creating These Impossibly Heavy Gravity Wells That Seemed To Pull The Listener In Deeper And Deeper With Their Relentless Repetition, Forever Becoming Has More Finesse To It. No Passage Ever Seems To Overstay Its Welcome As The Songs Move Briskly From Section To Section, Often Evolving Into Something Vastly Different Along The Way. A Change In Membership, Especially A Member As Essential To The Band's Sound As Lebec, Can Often Create A Sense Of Uncertainty That Seems To Bleed Into The Songs. For Pelican, Though, It Seems The Change In Membership Has Reinvigorated Them, Providing Their Songs With A Sense Of Stability That Shines Through On An Album That Easily Ranks As Some Of The Band's Most Exciting Work In Recent Years."

The Fire In Our Throats Will Beckon The Thaw
Used - LP - HH666-91
New, 2006 With Split Shrink Wrap At Opening, Records Appear Glossy And Almost As If Unplayed. "A New Style Of Metal Rose In The Early 21st Century; One That Was Light On The Vocals And Heavy On The Instrumentals. But It Certainly Wasn't Your Dad's Familiar Metal Instrumental -- Prog-Like Overindulgence Gave Way To Sounds Alternating Between Dreamy Soundscapes And Crushing Riffs -- As Evidenced By Groups Like Pelican. On The Group's Second Full-Length For Hydra Head, 2005's The Fire In Our Throats Will Beckon The Thaw, Pelican Introduce A New Texture To Its Sonic Palette: Acoustic Guitars. But Those Expecting A Full-on Flamenco Guitar Concerto Will Have To Look Elsewhere, As They're Used Sparingly. The Phrase "The Type Of Album You Have To Listen To All The Way Through" Seems Custom-Made For The Moody And Atmospheric Fire, As It Really Is A Sort Of Aural Roller Coaster. With The Same Stylistic Thread Running Throughout Many Of The Album's Seven Tracks, Individual Standouts Are Hard To Pinpoint, But If Push Came To Shove, You Can't Go Wrong With The Epic Album Opener, "Last Day Of Winter"." AMG Review By Greg Prato. more
