Review by Prog-jester
4 stars Seeing zero reviews for stoner rock's hottest band now makes me really sad. Yep, this is a prog-oriented site, but man have you actually heard ELDER?

Those rock acts that do manage to top the charts, acts like Coldplay and Imagine Dragons, have grown to use the guitar an ... (read more)
