An epic, doomy journey!

Although I had heard a lot about Pallbearer, I only recently got into them from seeing them open for At the Gates on the Decibel Tour—there is just so much music to check out and, regarding metal, I generally have a preference toward classic, death, black, and thrash. I enjoyed Pallbearer's entire set; however, the last song that they played, "Foreigner," especially intrigued me. Therefore, I picked up this album. I wasn't disappointed as the entire album is a very enjoyable listen.
I'll admit that this style of music takes some patience. However, if you take the time to give it a few spins, like much great music, it gets better with more listens and your effort will be rewarded. What I like most about "Sorrow and Extinction" as well as this general style is that it takes you on a journey–I just kind of space out and am taken to another place. Also, I love the crushing wall of thick, distorted guitar. The music is super slow, nevertheless, the sound is SO heavy.
As to be expected, the album has a doomy, somber overall sound—"Foreigner" is a good example. There are also some moments that sound a bit more "evil," such as some of the riffs in "An Offering of Grief"—another of my personal favorites from the album. As most great music, I believe this album is best experienced by listening to it from beginning to end. The vocals are delivered in an Ozzy-type, nasally tone—a bit of an acquired taste, I'll admit. Again, the guitar tone is awesome and all of the other elements serve the music well. The bass is extremely audible throughout and aids for fatten up an already crushing sound. Overall, great performances and songs. I would definitely recommend this album to fans of this style and/or anyone interested in checking it out as well as any fan of great music.
