Agalloch Streaming New album


I've only just heard of this band from Oregon a few weeks ago. They're being labeled as blackened folk music and I guess in parts that's true but there is more of a ambient feel to their music. They incorporate soundscapes into their sound that can be haunting and beautiful at the same time. While not the most prolific group(they've been around for years)but with the inclusion of the new album coming out soon they once again bring quality in a time where American metal of any form desperately needs it.
The new album is called Marrow of the Spirit and it is being streamed at this location. I'll probably do a review of it after I've had time to absorb it but in the meantime enjoy a band that rivals Scandinavia in terms of quality music from little old Oregon.
