Agalloch is a fairly old band, formed in 1995 in Portland, Oregon. This 2008 EP is a follow up of The Grey EP recorded over a three year period Agalloch combines dark ambience with a metal folk sound that is unbeatable for its genres. If you enjoy this music you should research into their Pale Folklore full album. Listening to this band at full blast in moderate lighting is a sure-fire way to simultaneously release tension, alienate everybody, and enhance your active forms of escapism.
