The third full-length by Pallbearer is their most crucial, massive, and powerful yet. With this natural progression from its predecessor, Foundations Of Burden, one of the most acclaimed metal albums of 2014, the band expands their sound further by harnessing classic traditional metal and the prog aesthetic even more while remaining true to the essence of their signature sound. A sonic monolith to behold, the album embraces a bigger production and sound than any of the band's previous releases. This creative peak sets a new standard in modern-day American metal. Heartless was tracked and recorded direct to analog at Fellowship Sound Studios in their hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas, mixed by producer Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens Of The Stone Age, Soundgarden, Judas Priest), and mastered by Dave Collins (Metallica, John Williams, Danny Elfman, Howard Shore).
