Praise for Elder Live At Roadburn 2013:

"Live at Roadburn 2013 contains plenty of doomy Elder jams. Elder dial in their floating melodies and crushing doom riffs, proving nice versions of songs from Dead Roots Stirring and Spires Burn/Release." Decibel Magazine

"Elder delivered a stunning performance here that could be the final breakthrough of this band in the scene. Very recommended." (Echoes & Dust)

"Where Elder will go next, no-one really knows. One thing’s for sure, ‘Live At Roadburn 2013’ has superbly captured them at the peak of their root-stirring powers in the home of the mighty." (The Sleeping Shaman)

Beginning in a small town in coastal Massachusetts by three long time friends, Elder started making rumblings in the stoner rock and doom scene with their first releases Elder and Dead Roots Stirring in 2008 and 2010. Relentless touring and increasing disillusion with the gimmicks and lack of creativity plaguing the heavy rock underground spurned the trio on to expand their sound, bringing in more psychedelic and progressive elements to their music. 2015’s Lore was a pivotal moment in the band’s orbit, receiving praise from the stoner/doom audience as well as reaching listeners outside an often insular scene, thanks to an unwillingness to adhere to genre limitations or cliches. During a period of incessant touring following Lore and full of inspiration from their travels, the band holed up for periods of intense songwriting over breaks to produce their most inspired and adventurous music of their now ten year career.

Long, undulating and dense tracks float between psychedelic passages and progressive rock without missing a beat; adventurous and unpredictable songs are punctuated by hypnotic jams, all colored by the tendency toward melody and dynamism that has become the band’s hallmark. In keeping with their motto of expanding and expanding upon their repertoire, guest musicians Mike Risberg and Michael Samos joined the core three in the studio to add extra guitar, keys and pedal steel, adding vibrancy and lushness to the album. In all regards, Reflections shows a band with a clear vision honing their skills with every year.
