Instrumental post-metal gods Pelican have a new album coming out October 15th entitled Forever Becoming. The most recent single off that album is called “The Cliff” and while it start’s off as a brooding and defiantly hard battle march it eventually peaks into a bright and hopeful climax before fading away into a soothing guitar piece that could soundtrack a sunrise. I always feel weird posting about metal because inevitably I say something that pisses off the most toxic and annoying of the genre purists out there. I hope I did nothing to offend you people this time, the song is great, let’s all be friends. Listen to “The Cliff” here and check out Forever Becoming out October 15th via Southern Lord.
