Pallbearer at St. Vitus
I had a transcendent experience hearing Pallbearer live last night at Saint Vitus... Their singer, Brett Campbell, is all about pinched, pained, soaring melody, in the vein of early Ozzy. To hear his bright, clear voice leaping out across the vast, doomy expanse he and his band lay down is downright startling, like witnessing a splendidly colored bird flying across a grey, postapocalyptic sky. -[DarkForcesSwing]Doom was well represented when Nashville's Loss and Little Rock's Pallbearer teamed for a rare east coast date on Saturday at Saint Vitus (5/19) with support from noise/dark ambient crew Sewer Goddess. Both Loss and Pallbearer treated the sold-out crowd to full-album renditions of ther respective LP favorites Despond and Sorrow & Extinction, including vocals from Brett (of Pallbearer) on Loss's set closer "Silent and Completely Overcome". More pictures from the show are below.
After a sold-out show at Saint Vitus, the band headed on over to Acheron (as announced on twitter) to keep the party rolling, cranking out an hour-plus set to an enthusiastic late night crowd. Pictures from the late-night Pallbearer performance are also below.
