Published Dec 10, 2014In writing their second full-length record, Foundations of Burden, Pallbearer looked to make a meaningful contribution to what they call the "Arkansas style of metal."
"Music that has weight to it" is what Pallbearer ultimately enjoys creating, though the band also pays special attention to a variety of dynamics in their songwriting. This compositional mindset was one of many that the band talked about in depth in the latest instalment of Exclaim! TV's Aggressive Tendencies, in which the band discussed their approach to writing for the highly touted new disc, what the definition of "heavy" means to them, and their goal to create long-lasting music.
