Pallbearer, formed in Little Rock, Arkansas by Brett Campbell, Joseph D. Rowland, and Devin Holt, were, on the release of their debut LP, Sorrow and Extinction, at the vanguard of the resurgence in doom metal.
At just under fifty minutes, the five tracks that make up Sorrow and Extinction are towering aural force. The seminal record instantly made waves among listeners and critics who found Pallbearer’s compositional paradox of vulnerability and might to be unparalleled.
Pitchfork heralded Sorrow and Extinction “a triumph,” while NPR claimed the songs on the album “challenge the doom gods themselves for a place on the throne." The album was both Stereogum and Pitchfork’s #1 Metal Album of 2012 and was Spin’s #2 Metal Album of the Year in 2012.A decade later, Sorrow and Extinction is no less an achievement. To celebrate the album’s tenth anniversary, Pallbearer will be playing a handful of select shows performing the album in its entirety.
