PELICAN: Self-titled: CDEP

Righteous one-riff stoner metal, like Sleep with no singing and an extra finger for the little guitar strings. Occasionally gets a little too precious and abandons the glorious monotony that really makes the form, but with no guitar solos per se they’re still way ahead of the pack. And “Pelican”? That ain’t no metal bird. Perfect.
