Fedaykin This sounds amazing. Rich, layered, smashing sounds. Which is appropriate for these fantastic heavy compositions. A lot of beauty in these tracks too. These guys are so good. Favorite track: Vestiges.

Rod Sedgwick I was always underwhelmed by the original release, but now everything feels so massive, punchy and perfectly mixed to accentuate the dynamics. I can now feel some love for this album, it sounds sublime!

WH Iverson Great job Lads! Music to be inspired and live by... cannot wait for Chicago show w/ terrific Cloakroom 😝🤘🏼☮️ thumbnail I wish Australasia could get this treatment - this new recording is just sonically gorgeous, it feels whole now, I always felt like the 2013 release was rushed or incomplete Favorite track: Perpetual Dawn.

This is a deluxe reissue of Pelican’s 2013 album Forever Becoming, featuring vastly improved mix and mastering of the original songs replete with a revised version of the previously Japan-only bonus track “Bardo.” Initially recorded by Chris Common under optimal conditions at Chicago’s Electrical Audio, Forever Becoming was mixed in less-than-ideal circumstances at a makeshift studio in Los Angeles, yielding mixes that varnished the incredible tones generated during tracking. When the subject of a vinyl repress came up, Common, now helming his own proper studio, asked for another crack at mixing the album. The result brings a new level of low end depth, atmospheric clarity, and tight, punchy heaviness to the album. Vinyl pre-orders are coming soon.

Included is a Bandcamp-exclusive bonus track: "The Cliff (feat. Allen Epley)."
