Review: Pallbearer - Sorrow And Extinction
The vocal performance of Campbell is one that truly epitomizes the group's emotional impact and the constant comparisons to a young Ozzy Osbourne couldn't be more accurate; perhaps without the double O's nasal style and Campbell's ability to execute the vocals with a much greater poetic charm which really heightens the sense of awe and hard-hitting tragedy that comes with the deathly impact which questions the type of outlook on life we ought to adopt.
However, it's the emotional impact that Pallbearer unleash on this album that makes it such a special listening experience because musically and lyrically it sees the group doing so much more than simply lurking about in doom and gloom. Even when managing to create an atmosphere of absolute bleakness and despair, the band still manage to sail through with a sense of triumph; Sorrow and Extinction is an album that laughs in the face of death.
Pallbearer's Sorrow And Extinction is out now via Profound Lore Records.
