Take note: the shortest song on this five-track LP from the Arkansas doom-rock upstarts is more than eight minutes long. But who cares that brevity isn’t Pallbearer's strong suit? The punishing lethargy and smear of sludgy, distorted guitars give tunes like “The Legend” and “Foreigner” a furious, protracted intensity. An impressively mature debut, Sorrow and Extinction sounds a bit like playing a Sabbath record at 15 RPM. Or in a word: awesome.
