Four years is way too long between Pelican full-lengths but if “Immutable Dusk”, the raging seven minute first single off the upcoming Forever Becoming, is but an inkling of what fans can expect when the album drops in October then the wait was definitely worth it.
Lurching along uncontrollably, the riff monster of “Immutable Dusk” lumbers along until the four minute forty five mark hits and then this chugging steamroller of riffs gets even more amazing. Seeing as this is also the first album without founding guitarist Laurent Schroeder-Lebec, it’ll be interesting to see where the band go from here. So far, though, it looks like they’re heading in the right direction.
Listen to “Immutable Dusk” below, buy the 7″ for another Forever Becoming track entitled “Deny The Absolute” over on The Mylene Sheath, and then count the days until the full-length is released on October 15th through Southern Lord.
