01:08 - Fernando Colon Shitfucking RM beat Guardiola's boringass Bayern. That's where total footballsucking leads - failure at barca and now failure at bayern. Oh how I fucking miss Jupp fucking Heynkes, his Bayern was amazing. Shitcunt, analwaste.
00:59 - no one the comments below are more entertaining
00:32 - Apothecary Aderlating is probably my favorite, shit's just evil as fuck. Some of Mories' best album art too (he does all his own) [link]
23:55 - moonflash The remastered version of Backlit by Isis is sounding so damn awesome! [link]
22:25 - mz Still need to check serimon in more details. My favorite project of him is GTT followed by aderlating. DMV and CoA are also very good projects. Can't say that I'm disappointed by any of his project thus far
22:11 - Apothecary Well again, I can see why. I've learned that sometimes it's the most emotionally sensitive people who make the most disturbing art, so it makes sense to me that Mories wanted a project that would express that side of himself too
22:05 - Erik M. Going from your description, it's indeed hard to believe it's done by him. :P But thanks for the link. I'm going to check it out for sure.
Additional info "Faustian Echoes" is a single, two-part song based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's epic masterpiece Faust. Reaching over twenty minutes, "Faustian Echoes" is the longest song Agalloch have ever written.
Here's a little game I like to play: guess what genre the next Agalloch EP will be? From the blasting lo-fi of From Which This Oak to the strange semi-electronic remixes on The Grey to the acoustic laden, Wicker Man-themed The White, Agalloch has managed a wide spectrum on their music palette, which makes this guessing game downright impossible. One thing's for sure, the EPs are never similar in genre to the preceding album, right?
Awesome song. It was great live, although I think they should have kept the middle and end commentaries for the performance. Too bad they probably won't be able to play this one live again for a while.
BTW, those interested in buying a physical copy of this can now. The band has it on their official ebay for $12 + shipping. I don't think the CD version is a limited release, unlike the vinyl, so their should be re-pressings of the CD version.
Agalloch have never failed to deliver captivating music, and this EP continues that tradition of excellence. If you had always been curious to hear what Agalloch would sound like if they played a purely black metal song, here you go. This is 20 minutes of dark, aggressive black metal. Of course, the flourishes and crescendos that Agalloch fans know and love are still very much present, as is Haughm's impeccable sense of melody and Anderson's great lead guitar playing, with Walton remaining a crucial, but more subtle element on bass. Aesop's dynamic drumming is fast becoming a staple of Agalloch's sound, and again the man works wonders here. Overall, another fantastic EP from this fantastic band.
