Wrote this bad boy back in 2017 for BloodRock Media. Enjoy, FUCKING LOVE THIS ALBUM!
Wow. That is all I have to say about this album. Just WOW. I have been a fan of Elder since I heard their “Dead Roots Stirring” album, and have followed them closely over the years. This band has evolved into one of the most talented psychedelic stoner doom bands ever. Each album they release becomes more complex than their previous, pooling from what seems an endless pit of powerful riffs. Pay attention close, kiddies, this album is going to be studied and analyzed for years to come.
“Sanctuary” is the first track on this album, and I think this one is my favorite. Powerful, punishing riffs, that fade into some really serene parts, only to finish you off with the most well layered doom riffs I have ever heard. “Staving off Truth” is also one of my favorites. One thing about Elder, each track is not only a song, but a journey. A Looooong journey. This album is a bit over an hour but it consists of only six tracks. If you’re a fan of long songs, this album is right up your alley.
“Reflections of a Floating World” is a complete masterpiece. This band has easily become one of my favorites, and I hope it affects you as it has affected me. Currently, they are touring the USA, so try to catch them if they play near you.
This album definitely gets 4.5 out of 5!
