Colossal stoner/doom on expedition to psych-, prog-, & krautrock!

“All heavy, no filler.” After 3 LPs, and with that mantra in the back of their minds, the guys from Elder decided to squeeze out a masterpiece: ‘Reflections of a Floating World’. On it, they serve up colossal stoner/doom laced with traces of psychedelic diversion and head out on daring expeditions toward prog- and krautrock. ‘Mindblowing’, ‘masters of the dying art of epic-scale rock composition’, ‘riffy awesomeness’, … The ears are bombarded with superlatives... and decibels! An album that adorns many a year-end metal chart.

For fans of Ufomammut, YOB, Kylesa, Sleep, Black Tusk, ASG, Pallbearer, Electric Wizard, Fu Manchu

Elder are clearly gifted musicians, but playing live they underwhelmed me immensely. Since most of the songs sounded the same with very few melodic variations from one song to another, I felt like I was listening to the same song over and over. I came off of this gig more impressed by King Buffalo and their dynamic sound than Elder.
Sublime soirée avec un pack King Buffalo - Elder de feu de dieu ! Et excellent public, il faut le reconnaître !
C'est un peu mitigé que je me suis rendu au concert d'Elder. Je les avais déjà vus trois fois et leurs prestations avaient été à chaque reprise excellentes. Mais n'était-ce pas la fois de trop, avec un dernier album ("Reflections on a floating world") que j'ai trouvé décevant ? Dès les premiers instants, j'ai reçu en pleine pêche un flagrant démenti. La puissance est toujours là avec Jack Donovan, le bassiste, qui a les clés du camion et sait le mener en force dans les sinuosités des guitares. Elder en public prend une dimension énorme et, une fois encore, le concert a été superbe, souligné par un light show détonant. En première partie, King Buffalo nous a fait passer un agréable moment, mais c'est une autre catégorie.
