Despite their style being firmly grounded in the dark metal genre, Agalloch has always been a band who prefers experimentation over settling on a niche. The result has been three full-lengths and a handful of EPs that have bridged the gap between gothic doom, black metal, neo-folk, post rock, and industrial/ambient soundscapes. The band has earned a rabid cult following over the years due in part to their artistic & independent attitude, elusive aura, and scarce but volatile live performances.
Four years after their critically acclaimed sophomore effort "The Mantle", Agalloch delivers their new album, "Ashes Against The Grain". Always progressing, but never losing touch with their dark metal roots, the band's third album unites elements of black metal, Scandinavian prog, and post-rock with the band's signature brooding style.
Agalloch hails from Portland, Oregon - in the heart of the Pacific Northwest.
