Pallbearer have released ‘The Quicksand of Existing’, the third single from the band’s forthcoming album Forgotten Days, out October 23rd via Nuclear Blast.
“As we strive to be, the forces of entropy perpetually pull us down into a state of being unmade,”
Offers bass player/songwriter Joseph D. Rowland of the track which reflects the narrative themes behind the highly-anticipated release, self-described by the band as a reflection on family and loss.
“The body degrades; the mind and memories fray into unwoven threads, no longer connected to the rich fabric of the self. Choices made upon our separate and conjoined paths may find us engulfed in a mire of our unmaking. I wanted this song to face this reality with a grim determination.”
Brett Campells vocals sound full of hope and work so well over the dirge of guitars and drums. This is heavy. Bowel loosening heavy. But the production is spot on as the track doesn’t sound like it was recorded under water. The guitar breaks through for a wah wah drenched solo and lead lines. The boys are really impressing with these recent releases.
