Best s/t song was Eyeless IMO.
Also, frankly I'm not a fan of their next album - Iowa, but check out the title track. It's brilliant if you ask me.

Ohh yes. Eyeless was the best. We should have a Metal thread meet :)

 

I had an audio cassette.. I miss it.

 

You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes.

Trogdor, I don't listen to Agalloch so I can't really contribute at all. Which is funny cause I'm even from Portland OR originally.

 

I think the closest two cds for me would be like Aenima or Lateralus...I can never can pick between those two

Invalid, pick one. Keep'em coming folks...can't start a flame war with just two answers...

 

Yeah, it obviously sounds very similar to Agalloch, but it lacks... something. I don't know, I just couldn't connect with it the same way I can with Agalloch. I'll have to give it another try soon.

 

Ugh. I guess Mantle, just because I tend to like that style of music better. They're really too different to compare. Those two are better than the other albums, I will say that.

Cool stuff. Didn't think I'd see this band referenced here....never know what people are listening to! I've got their first album-The Unkindness of Crows. At least I think it's their first. I hate buying music that I end up not liking.  I bought it thinking it might be a stretch, but I really like it. I would recommend Eagle Twin for fans of drone and doom. Somewhere between the drone sounds of Sunn and old Earth and the heavier doom sounds of Boris (Amplifier Worship) with a touch of Americana roots rock....experimental and quite interesting.

 

Glad you posted this...hadn't heard this release.

The way I see it, Agalloch are to black metal what Opeth are to death metal. Both have sort of transcended those genres to something else. In my book, Agalloch are essential metal listening. I think they are in a class of their own.

I agree re Opeth.They are so unique

post #10705 of 17271

That reminds me, has anyone seen Opeth lately? Or at least any live videos? It sounds like Mikael has his old growl back! I didn't think they would ever make another death metal album but now I'm not so sure.

I do too, though 16 years ago I could listen to a Kluster album all the way till the end. Now I need recordings wth a little more song structure. It is great to pull out the old tunes once in a while. Even 16 years ago when Krautrock had it's mini-comeback, it was old. My favorites are Ash Ra Temple,Faust,Can,Kraftwork,Amon Dul and Amon Dul 2. Such great music.

Can is awesome. Not a fan of the genre and never was, but I love music with a lack of solid structure. Sun0))) for the win!

And on another note, ashes against the grain also for the win......!

Between the two Mantle > Ashes

 

My personal Agalloch ranking goes like Mantle > Of stone, wind and Pillor >  Pale folklore = Ashes.

 

Finally decided to post here (after a few years) instead of lurking since you guys talk about Mantle while I am listening to it wink.gif
