Elder is a genre-pushing rock band that melds heavy psychedelic sounds with progressive elements and evocative soundscapes.

ELDER – Innate Passage


2LP (white) / CD

Psychobabble 127 / Stickman Records

Innate Passage is the sixth Elder full-length. It finds the mostly-Berlin-based band in the post-pandemic era as veterans at the forefront of a league of progressive and heavy groups working in large part under their influence; a stately presence as reliably forward-thinking as they are unpredictable in sound.

The vinyl version comes as a deluxe 2LP on 180gr. white vinyl housed in a custom die-cut outer sleeve with interchangeable album art and download code.

ELDER & KADAVAR – Eldovar: A Story Of Darkness And Light


LP (color-in-color blue vinyl)

RRR004 / Robotor Records

Repress on color-in-color blue vinyl. Limited to 200 copies and a Stickman webshop exclusive!

In the midst of the COVID-19 shutdown in Germany, Elder’s Berlin-based contingency teamed up with local heroes Kadavar for a weekend to make some noise. What began as an idea to just jam with a “let’s-see-what-happens!” mentality became a trip on its own, and after months of digging through jam sessions, writing and re-writing parts and developing a plan not just for an improvised record but for a true concept album, the bands have released their joint effort.
