Pelican

Hi I am new to Marks work and I love the Sun Kil Moon album.  I haven't been so moved by an album since "Bonnie" Prince Billy's "Master and Everyone" (buy iy!!!).

If you love the heavier riff on "Duk Koo Kim" you might want to take a look at Pelican.  They are on the mighty ISIS frontman Aaron Turners' label Hydahead.

Check out their album "Australasia".

While your at it check out ISIS's Oceanic.  The 2nd best album ever made (after TOOL's AENIMA) I my opinion.

T'ra!

Re: Pelican

AENIMA. Never liked that Tool album.
Preferred the first proper album (cant remember its name) with the pig on forks on it.
Is it me or does maynard have a thing about fists and crap? smile

Re: Pelican

Aenima is the Tool masterpiece to me. But Undertow is really good also.

Re: Pelican

Yeah Undertow it amazing too.  I saw them back in '93 on that tour in Glasgow and it just blew my socks off!

I made a mistake yesterday.  As I said I'm new to Marks work. I actually meant the riff on Salvador Sanchez is the one that remids me of Pelican.

Re: Pelican

i like Pelican. Australasia is the only one i still need by them. 'The Fire In Our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw' is them at their best i reckon. They are a little samey, I enjoy their recent album though can't tell a lot of the tracks apart, the closing one, their first song with vocals, is brilliant. I like the way they describe themselves on the credits as 'grunge gravy'. I love a bit of sludge metal.

I have Oceanic and Panopticon by Isis and they are both amazing. I was totally floored by Panopticon, the first i heard by them. The build up and release on In Fiction is beyond belief. I look forward to getting some of their other albums soon.

Re: Pelican

don't know how I overlooked this thread, luv me sum' Pelican!

I've seen em' live a few times with Thrice & Circa Survive, killer sound - SO BIG, SO LOUD!

What We All Come To Need is a fantastic album. I've got it on vinyl, & it sounds amazing.

& as far as TOOL goes, Lateralus is not only their crowning achievement - it's one of the greatest rock albums of all-time!
(also own Lateralus on vinyl - one of my most prized possessions.)


and the open drapes look out on frozen farmhouse landscapes...
