Pallbearer is always a standout act to my ears. While many doom bands have become too gothic, too stoner, or too funeral, Pallbearer continued the legacy of traditional doom that few in the past 20 years have managed to and have since become a cult act in the underground. The band's latest album, Forgotten Days, leads on a different trajectory while continuing their signature sound.

First track is mediocre af. Album art is ugly as hell as well. Seems like this is going to be a major step back from Heartless. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Gotta say that I unfortunately agree. Heartless was one of my favorite doom albums of recent years, and "Forgotten Days" seems to have abandoned all of the qualities that made their previous album a standout in the genre.

While I agree with the album art cover I will say I really enjoyed the track.

Yeah I unfortunately agree as well. This feels way too radio-friendly and bland. What's with the verse chorus verse BS? Step back in writing for sure.

So far the album sounds fantastic. I might be a little biased since I'm a fan of this band, but so far I'm really enjoying this album.

One of those years when doom album what goes to GMN direction wins and get some points. First song I thought I listen Brimstone Coven, later it goes to 40 Watt Sun, Spirit Adrift, Atlantean Kodex, Khemmis defection

Skimmed some of the tracks, really not feeling it. Gonna have to find some time to listen proper, but it isn't looking good for my tastes. Compared to their previous efforts, this seems like a dramatic leap backwards.

I like the album art quite a bit for just being a portrait style painting. The only thing that bothers me about the painting is that little bit of grey in the top right corner.

Production could have been better but regardless of that I'm enjoying a lot this one. A natural progression musically speaking from Heartless.

This shit is unlistenable to me. The muffled mixing hurts my brain even before the first track ends. A real shame since I love their first two albums...

Good melodic doom even though a trite boring. Caledonia is a great track.
