Elder - Compendium

Monday and a new week, which means we'll introduce this week's "Record Of The Week".

The power trio ELDER hailing from Massachusetts who are pulling off some rather powerful rock on their latest and newest release "Lore"

Their second full-length "Dead Roots Stirring", was an amazing album, a Vinyl record that I have been hunting for sometime but not yet been able to obtain. With "Lore" have ELDER continued to developed and push their sound in more dynamic and inspiring directions. It's feels more clear, where the riff's have a more progressive approach and the focus is set to take the listener on a long exploration trip in the valley of psychedelic prog. They also have extended the tunes and peeled down on the vocals to let the melodies speak. The album have a excellent flow without getting to difficult and massive, which I really like. "Lore" is an album that sounds like the cover, just take a look on the stunning artwork made by Adrian Dexter, dream away and you will see the parable.

A quick summery of the album "Lore":

The third full-length album and is a watershed moment in the band's history, a precious stone you must have in your jewellery collection.

The vinyl version features a die-cut cover with two full color reversible LP sleeves, along with a lyrics insert (for maximum customizable fun). Of course you can expect 180g, high quality black vinyl - no funky colors at least for this run - and a free download code.

Today's tune "Compendium" starts off in a classic rock way, with a guitar boogie melody before it hatches to a more heavier, a bit stoner style where the first step takes on the fantastic journey that "Lore" supply!
