Some bands just know how to hit the sweet spot. Elder’s second full-length Dead
Roots Stirring, originally released in 2011, was an hour of fuzzed-out goodness,
a plethora of uplifting psychedelic riffery that remains for many fans the band’s
defining album. The strength of some bands lies
in their ability to churn out record
after record, never stepping outside
of their comfort zones. For others,
such as Boston’s Elder, it is a
constant evolution that trademarks
their sound. Beginning as a stoner/
doom band adept at equipping
the styles of others, Dead Roots
Stirring showed the young band
emerging with their own unique
take on heavy music.
The album’s five long cuts unfold
organically, never lacking in depth
or ambition; guitarist Nick DiSalvo’s
infectious riffs are equal parts
uplifting melody and crushing fuzz
that remind the listener more of
majestic landscapes than bong sessions,
while Jack Donovan (bass)
and Matt Couto (drums) form a
solid core of rhythm, never losing a
beat. Listeners will pick up on Following the release of Dead
Roots Stirring - which came out as
the trio were just barely entering
their twenties - Elder began touring
both the United States and Europe,
winning a reputation for themselves
as an incredibly tight and
powerful live band. Their second
record continues to be a fan favorite
and no live set is complete without
the opening track “Gemini”,
a headbanger of a song complete
with thick grooves, flashy solo runs
and a momentous ending - in short,
everything great about Elder’s music:
a journey within each song full
of valleys and peaks.
Dead Roots Stirring is available on
Stickman Records on colored 180
gr. double-vinyl (including download)
and CD, remastered for the
first time since recording by Carl
Saff. Highly recommended for all
fans of heavy rock!
