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]
Italian symphonic power metal rising stars Ancient Bards are ready to release their third album in 2014, the follow-up to 2011's Soulless Child, that will set the beginning of the second part of the Black Crystal Sword Saga. The guys seem to have not lost their passion for medieval times, as you can see by enjoying the crispy album trailer down here.
The band posted this brief message on their Facebook page: "There you go! Get ready to dive back into the Black Crystal Sword Saga in 2014! Crispy enough? Well, get used to it because this is just the beginning!"
