Pallbearer 

Record Exchange, Sunday, May 20

If Pallbearer were a kid, it would be a moody 10 year old at play in all-black clothes, but keeping an intelligent eye on the world. Yes, the band is a decade old this year, but that isn't the only fuel for the metaphor. The group's third album, Heartless (Profound Lore/Nuclear Blast, 2017), is a solid reprisal of its 2012 hit Sorrow and Extinction (Profound Lore)—named the year's best metal album by Rolling Stone—and captures an unexpectedly mature balance, pairing raucous doom-laden choruses with melodic pauses. The echoing vocals exist in a space apart from the music, and the whole album comes off as a carefully choreographed heavy metal ballet. The Record Exchange will be Pallbearer's only Boise stop, and if the set doesn't convince you on the trip, the meet-and-greet and album signing should.
