Pelican - s/t
From Aural Innovations #21 (October 2002)
This band comes from the southern US and the CD is due to come out on the Hydrahead label later this year. The EP is a 4 piece 30 minute long CD of quite interesting all instrumental, sometimes crushingly heavy stuff. I had to listen to this CD 5 times to really get it but man, some of these tracks are quite excellent. Each track gets progressively longer on the CD and better as well. I guess this gets put into the category of Stoner rock but this is much better than the likes of Warhorse or Electric Wizard, which I can find quite boring at times. I hear a little Godflesh and old St. Vitus in their sound as well. Give this a shot for sure.
