SabbathJeff Personally, I'm no longer doomed. At least, not the way I once was headed. Humanity, on the other hand, certainly appears to be doomed to repeat its mistakes, suicidally unwilling to learn from them. This album is the sound of the desire, and inability, to crush the ingnorance that continues that cycle. Well, to my ears, anyway. Received. Spun. Loved. Thank you once again Conclave!

John Met Conclave are one of the finest Doom/Sludge bands around. This album is a masterpiece & a must own for anyone who considers themselves a true aficionado of heavy music. Best metal album of 2016, in my humble opinion. Favorite track: Cut It Off.

"That Conclave would have an idea of what they wanted to accomplish going into their first full-length isn’t really a surprise given their experience and what they were able to bring to the prior EP, but Sins of the Elders excels in its pummel and its blend of heavy riffing and harder sentiments. It is brutal in concept and execution."
- JJ Koczan - The Obelisk

"The best thing to be said about Conclave is their variety. From swaggering blues riffs, to alternate picked death metal riffs, they're just crossing vast, desolate lands of sound.
Pained vocals buttressed by growls coexist with the guitars. The vocals are weaved in and out of the mix, from far in the back to right up front.
Sins of the Elders is the best doom metal to cross my desk in 2016."
- Nik Cameron - Glacially Musical

"Many stoner/sludge metal oriented bands in the doom sub-genre struggle to develop retainable songs in mass – the ethos being a bludgeoning effect that can be impressive in the short term, yet ultimately moving to the recesses of your mind. Jerry as a vocalist conveys despair in a somber, contemplative manner for “Aethereum”, rhythmically matching the lurking, lumbering chords before the swinging Sabbath-like uplift and wah-wah lead break action takes the listener into another psychedelic haze direction. The seasoning these four musicians have had in a variety of genres through decades of previous work greatly benefits the outcome of the material, as conscious attention to the right transitions and riff arrangement keeps this slightly over one-hour record entertaining and rather comforting to take in front to back – which isn’t always the case in a genre known for slow, drawn out songs. Be it a touch of extreme black metal trilling in certain sections of the title cut or even reaching back to a more tribal Metallica nuance, Conclave’s synthesis of what they love into their sound organically works.
Sins of the Elders keeps Conclave in the mix for one of the best sludge/stoner/doom metal units going not only in New England – but the entire international landscape. Proof that the heart and soul of the movement will never die."
-Matt Coe - Dead Rhetoric
