Elder – “Reflections of a Floating World” Double LP
Six monumental songs on their 4th album, packaged in an amazing, work-of-art, sleeve. Revealing a natural progression from the psych/stoner/doom metal origin, becoming a little more diverse and mature than previous LPs. Only a little, mind – this is still an aggresive monster of an album. The contrast between the spacey, delicate passages and the huge, dense, riff-explosions have been fine-tuned to new levels of epic grandeur. And guest musicians Michael Samos and Mike Risberg have added additional guitars, pedal steel and keyboards to the trio – making Elder’s sound more voluminous than ever. This is the fourth press (2020) on coloured vinyl.
