The Arkansas doom goliaths, Pallbearer, are set to release Heartless at the end of the month. Heartless will be the
group’s third album and will be the follow-up to 2014’s monolithic Foundations of Burden. Pallbearer specializes in a kind of massive, wide screen doom. Somehow each album has been both better and larger than the last. With “Thorns” and now “I Saw the End”, it appears Heartless will be no exception. Like with “Thorns”, “I Saw the End” appears to have more emphasis on intricate, classical, guitar licks slithering around each other. Also, this time around, Brett Campell’s vocals are stronger and more confident. It isn’t just Campbell whose vocals have improved. The rest of the group includes harmonies that remind of Crosby, Still, & Nash. Listen to the single below.
Heartless is out 3/24. Pre-order it from Profound Lore Records.
