Reflections of a Floating World

I haven't finished listening to this new (fucking killer) Elder record yet, so I can't really form any real thoughts about it (except that it's fucking killer). I just love the album cover so much that I want it on the top of the page. So here it is. Pretty sweet, right?

Lore

A stoner metal band is only as good as its album cover, and Lore's album cover kicks ass. So wouldn't you know, the record does the same. These guys aren't doing a whole lot beyond what their genre entails, but they do it with talent and taste, and enough proggy, Zeppliny flourishes that you almost feel like they're not stoner metal at all. If their singer can find a setting beyond "snarl," they'll be a force to reckon with.

* Yes, Jersey Mike’s. Look, it’s a dumb chain. But I had it for the first time this year and I think it’s super legit and is far and away the best sub sandwich chain around. My first sandwich there was a minor revelation to mean I will vouch for it all day long on this dumb blog.
