06:13 - Fearmeister Yea, I never even finished that album and I was a massive Agalloch fanboi
05:45 - Apothecary Marrow Of The Spirit is definitely underrated, not sure why people say Agalloch went downhill with that album. I definitely don't think they ended on a strong note with Serpent & The Sphere though
23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
II is pretty much what I thought it would be... 40 minutes or so of ugly, foul blackened sludge. Only instead of 6-7 tracks they crafted two 20 minute double-epics, tossing in some groovy psychedelia to boot. Rawr.
I've decided that this album is on par with Abyssal's recent effort, if not just a smidgen better. Truly outstanding work here, and to top it off (and to agree with just about everyone who's commented on the artwork), goddamn that is some fine artwork.
