Tha Mantle is made of one melody and it was stolen from Nargaroth's Herbsteleyd

Heard a couple tracks a while back, really didn't like them at all. Then again, I'm no doom fan.

They're a very good band, but you need to be in certain mood to listen and enjoy them. Thhat's at least for me. The singer has a great voice nonetheless.

What Spike and Dyers Eve said.

Repetitive and Droning is exactly what the band is supossed to be, its Doom for christsake! Agalloch play some awesome music. I'm a pretty big fan and I guess they're based in Portland Oregon, which is like right across the river from me! Havent seen them around yet, though.

I agree that Pale Folklore is better than The MAntle, but IMO, Agalloch pwns WoY.

Agalloch created 'Ashes Against the Grain'. With it came World Peace. And it was Good.

The End.

I love Agalloch. Release date for 'Ashes against the Grain' is August 8th, I'm going to buy this as soon as it's available here.

You can download a new song from this album at www.myspace.com/agalloch, it's called Falling snow. Production is much better, especially the drums. Haughm's voice got a little better too, I think it's a very cool song.

I hope they will play in The Netherlands, it would be awesome to see them play.

The mantle is excellent, but the solos on Pale Folklore border on unlistenable from what ive heard. Chromatism works in death metal, not in melodic doomy stuff like this.

The new song is pretty awesome. I'm digging the vocal harmonies.

I can't decide whether they need a new drummer or not.

Hum.

I heard some rumours today about a European tour with Novembers Doom, if it's true I will be buying my ticket as soon as possible. It would be awesome seeing those bands perform.

Er.....Pretty sure you can't "bump" stuff around here...

But since you did, I like the new Agalloch a lot. In fact, I'd say Ashes Against the Grain is my favorite album by them, even more than The Mantle. Of course, I didn't like Pale Folklore all that much, so...

The first time I heard Not Unlike the Waves on The End's Dark Psyche compilation, I was pretty much blown away...
