Southern Lord label mates GOATSNAKE and PELICAN will embark on their four-city Midwest US mini-tour next week, marking GOATSNAKE‘s first time ever performing in the region and PELICAN‘s return to towns which they’ve not played in quite some time.

Uniting Southern California’s soulful doom quartet, GOATSNAKE, and Chicago’s atmospheric post-rock artisans, PELICAN, this special run of tour dates will begin in Indianapolis on December 12th. The first show also features Bongripper and more, and will be followed by a post-show after party at Kuma’s Corner, where the bands’ prior special burgers will be made available as a trio of miniatures, the event also featuring DJ Sets by Greg Anderson of GOATSNAKE and Dustin Boltjes of Skeletonwitch. The rest of the tour sees both bands playing to fans in Columbus on December 13th, Ferndale on the 14th and the final show hitting Chicago on the 15th with Cloakroom and Canadian Rifle. Since prior announcements, the Chicago show has been moved from Thalia Hall to the more intimate caves of the Empty Bottle.

Goatsnake - Black Age Blues - 2015 - promo album cover pic - GMO03

GOATSNAKE continues to support their lauded Black Age Blues LP, released in June. Featuring guest contributions from David Pajo (Slint, Aerial M, Papa M) and soul vocal trio Dem Preacher’s Daughters and more, the LP was recorded and mixed at Rock Falcon Franklin, Tennessee by Nick Raskulinecz (Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Mastodon, Rush) and mastered by Brian Big Bass Gardner (N.W.A., Stevie Wonder, Parliament). Ending a fifteen-year gap in full-length releases, the unstoppable entertaining album not only shows the band musically exploring new turf, it’s becoming the most triumphant album of GOATSNAKE‘s career.

PELICAN ‘Ataraxia/Taraxis – As Excellence In Heavy Instrumental Albums Goes, This EP Is A Prime Pick

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, instrumental metal, instrumental music, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on March 23, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

PELICAN – Sometimes a four song EP does a Metal mind some good, especially when it’s as good as Ataraxia/Taraxis from the heavy Post-Instrumental band known as Pelican. All four songs I’ve listened to on this EP are rich with tonal vibrancy that weaves Stoner, Doom and Hard Rock, with spacey smooth, synthetic ambience added into the creative mix as well.

Pelican entertains so eloquently and craftily with their instruments, that vocals could never be applied to their songs without ruining the experience. There are moments I’ve encountered where Pelican can take me on that trip where the vibes are early Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep cassettes being blared at maximum level, on a hazy Summer’s day, from an old school boom box. In other words, within the swirls of their impressive musical fluency, Pelican plays it with some crunchy retrospective flare.

The Doom isn’t Pentagram, it’s more like Peligram. The Stoner isn’t The Sword, instead it’s Pelican flirting with the feel and rhythm of that genre and unveiling it within their songs as a shadow that doesn’t go unnoticed. Heavy (not like molasses) and diverse in sound, Ataraxia/Taraxis comes with solid production while not being anywhere near over-polished.

The Heavy Metal riffs are all here, the thick wall of Metal sound reigns supreme on Lathe Biosas and Parasite Colony. All four songs just come across to me as strongly written and so well executed. The end result of Ataraxia/Taraxis, for me, is a damn cool listening experience from the instrumental genius of Pelican.

Ataraxia/Taraxis releases on April 10th, 2012, via Southern Lord.
