If you are not familiar with Pelican, here are some ideas for you to digest. All the comparison to Mogwai, Isis, and Jesu are right on. I can see where people are going comparing them to Godspeed You Black Emperor and Explosions in the Sky, as they take their time getting to places. But those two bands are their own complete beasts. I often think of the instrumental song "Orion" by Metallica on Master of Puppets...Imagine if that song were 10 minutes, or in this case, 20 minutes, complete with crushing distorted guitar passages, with fierce drums, and with beautiful dual guitar pieces, interwovem over chilled out bass and drum passages...now youre getting the point. I hope...
As for the song, well, for those unfamiliar with Pelican, it's a tour-de-force of post rock with a metal edge. Like most of the post rock bands Pelican create an astounding `wall of sound' that thunders and roars, sounding very much like the moody weather shown on the cover art. Pelican have a fresh take on this style, they encompass some really crunching undeniably metal riffs and the odd double bass onslaught in the drums department. For those familiar with Pelican, this is a great new direction, the band is simply taking the elements of old, and expanding them with a far more ambitious structure and sound. The other track here `Angel Tear's is decent, from their previous work `Australasia', its nowhere near the lead singles calibre however.
Great lead single from the epic `Fire In Our Throats...', definitely worth checking out if new to Pelican and a fan of post rock and metal.
4 stars, great EP.
