Agalloch - To Release Retrospective Album


Agalloch have updated their Myspace page with the following message:

"Firstly, we announce the release of "The Demonstration Archive." This is a full-length retrospective CD collection chronicling our unsigned years (1996 - 1998). This release includes both the "From Which Of This Oak," and "Promo '98" demos. We are also including our never released 7-inch that was originally entitled "Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor" (later released via The End Records with bonus tracks). From the primal opening riffs of "The Wilderness" to the epic closing of "The Melancholy Spirit," the "Demonstration Archive" tracks the gradual evolution and refinement of the Agalloch sound and style finally heard on the landmark debut album "Pale Folklore"."

The track listing appears in chronological order below:

"From Which of this Oak" (1997)

01. The Wilderness
02. As Embers Dress The Sky
03. This Old Cabin

"Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor" unreleased 7-inch (1998)

04. Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor
05. Foliorum Viridium
06. Haunting Birds

"Promo '98" (1998)

07. Hallways Of Enchanted Ebony*
08. The Melancholy Spirit*

*different recording sessions from those appearing on "Pale Folklore"

All the material was taken from the original analog sources. Aside from some slight mastering to keep the songs at an even volume, nothing was edited or polished. This collection includes a 12-page booklet with notes, era-related artwork, and never-before seen photos from a January 1998 session."

Check out an edited version of "The Wilderness" from our debut demo "From Which of This Oak" on their MySpace page.

she cloaks the world
in impenetrable darkness.
A chill rises
from the soil
and contaminates the air
suddenly...
life has new meaning"

Since the 'Of Stone, Wind and Pillor' EP has been out of print for years, yes, I do. That and the cover of 'Kneel to the Cross'. Although I realise that those tracks weren't recorded for the original, unreleased EP. Bah.

Will order this today.
