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.
Doom/gothic metallers The Foreshadowing have released a song, a cover version of "The Rains Of Castamere" whose original music was written by Ramin Djawadi and George R. R. Martin. It's just a tribute to the Game Of Thrones series that the band recorded and mixed while working on the new album and is now sharing.
The Foreshadowing has been working hard on the songwriting process for the new album which will follow Second World. According to the band, the new album will be released around the end of the year.
