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]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.
23:10 - Netzach Agalloch are so damn uneven though. The Mantle is fantastic and I also really like Marrow... but as for the rest, meh.

Quote: It is a lullaby of hope, and features new guy Daniel on vocals along with previous conspirator Belinda Kordic .... There's plenty of rock action on the album, so for now, as a gift from us to you for your support, you can take a moment to get lost in a more intimate track....
Not sure what I think about this. I keep playing it, not because I am in love with it but because I am not sure wth I am listening to. Is it post rock? Prog? Black? Atmospheric? Am I supposed to like it? Time and more plays will tell I guess...
It's Prog Rock with Post elements, and a little bit of atmospheric thrown in. Though this, as like Mankind, is on the proggier end. It doesn't hold the grandeur of Vigilante, nor Sadness EP, which is a shame, because grandeur is what they do best.
