Palehorse/Palerider are a band from Denver, Colorado that plays a musical style they describe as being doomgaze and this is a review of their 2017 album "Burial Songs" which will be released on April 28th by Graven Earth Records.
Atmospheric drones and drum beats start off the album along with some powerful sounding bass guitar leads a few seconds later while the traditional guitar leads are done in a very melodic shoegaze fashion and after awhile the riffs start mixing in the heaviness of doom metal along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Vocals are mostly done in a clean singing style and the songs also bring in a great amount of clean guitars and synths and at times the music also adds in elements of psychedelic and 90's alternative rock while also sounding very modern at the same time and all of the songs stick to a slow musical style.
Palehorse/Palerider plays a musical style that takes an atmospheric form of doom metal and mixes it with shoegaze to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Palehorse/Palerider are a very great sounding doomgaze band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sundowning" and "Nero". 8 out of 10.
