Pelican- Forever Becoming

Ah, yes, Pelican. a very, very hard band to categorize, or even describe. Instrumental rock would be accurate, but not very descriptive. People call it "Post metal" but that's mostly to differentiate it from the "post rock" of Tortoise, which is simply instrumental music. So, yes, Pelican use loud guitars and recognizable riffs. So what?
Here's the only thing that works for me- if you like Godflesh, Neurosis, Isis, Baroness, Kylesa or the Melvins, give Pelican a serious listen. I happen to love their music, but I'll be damned if I can really tell you you what it is.
