Agalloch
Pale Folklore (The End Records)

By: Jeb Branin

MENTAL HOME better be careful. The End has a new band in the stable that is going to give them a run for their money as the band that defines the label. From the opening swirls of music on this disc I knew I was in for something special. The emotional ebb and flow here are astounding. Pale Folklore's presence fluctuates between something akin to a dense fog and a steam roller. It is classy and expressive. AGALLOCH borrow heavily from the lighter shades of black metal but completely shun the generic trappings of the genre, instead opting for a more smooth and passionate delivery. They are seamlessly tight which is made all the more impressive by the fact that they have a very progressive feel to their music. They defintiely are a band whose music reaches for the future and disdains dwelling in the past. Consequently any comparisons to other bands would be inadequate at best and libelous at worst.
