Episode 477: Elder's 'Omens'
Metal band Elder is revered by their fans but has always existed just outside the mainstream. With the release of their new LP Omens, their moment in the spotlight may have finally arrived.
Fusing the massive riffs that they're known for with prog keyboards and a seemingly endless imagination for melody, the newly invigorated quartet has crafted an album that isn't just a high point of the band's career, but one that puts them in the prog/psych pantheon alongside bands like Rush, Yes, and Pink Floyd.
Tune in as we explore "dad metal," head-trips, and how a long time favorite has become an all-time-great on an all-new episode of Discologist.
