Pallbearer is the doom-metal band that generated the most amount of buzz in 2012.
Their debut album 'Sorrow and Extinction' truly defines a distinguished new doom-sound,
both melodic and melancholic but also very intense and accompanied by dense riffing.
What i also like about Pallbearer is that they manage to create these dramatic song structures without bearing resemblance to any post-metal band out there, really impressive. (although they do sound a bit like 40 Watt Sun).
The only thing holding me back at first were the vocals, they were a bit to operatic for my taste but eventually you start to appreciate the overall atmosphere it creates together with all the other elements that make this band what it is.
