Elder are a band originating from Boston, Massachusetts. Originally for their early years as a power trio the band has evolved into a quartet as of 2017. The band's sound derives from a wide range such as heavy psych, doom metal, stoner rock and heavy metal, combining several elements to attain a rather distinctive sound.

Elder have cited Colour Haze and Dungen as "the bands that have really influenced the methodology or the philosophy behind the new direction". While Elder's sound is varied, but heavily based around rock and metal, Elder's sound could also be said to have been influenced from such landmark Rock/Metal bands including Black Sabbath, Sleep and Electric Wizard.

To date Elder have released five studio albums in a career spanning nearly fifteen years, many of these albums attaining significant critical praise. Notably three of the albums would rank in the top five of the best albums of the 2010s list curated by The Obelisk.
