Along with Isis and Neurosis, Pelican is at the forefront of bands currently making a kind of thinking person's heavy metal. That's not a put-down either. The way Pelican's shifting instrumental songs move seamlessly between fierce rampaging and almost pastoral beauty shows that something good can come from exploring the space between Black Sabbath and Brian Eno. "Far From Fields" is taken from the band's newly released "City of Echoes."
