Fade away with Agalloch
on June 6, 2004
I don't think any of the guys in Agalloch had any idea what kind of a masterpiece they were going to unleash. 9 Tracks long and spanning over an hour, "The Mantle", is a surreal tour de force. If anything, buy this album for track number two, "In The Shadow of our pale Companion". Simply put, one of the greatest songs ever. Haughm's emotional clean and harsh vocals are simply amazing and the music takes you into the world of Agalloch--a world of incense, winter, spirits and serenity. I could give you a play by play review of all the songs but I won't. You need to experience them yourself. Put the cd on, light some incense, close your eyes and let Agalloch take you away.
