Alda - Tahoma

Thanks to Islander from No Clean Singing I got a heads up about the Replenish Records Bandcamp. Their newest release is Alda's Tahoma and Islander had this to say about the band
They are a black metal band cut from the same Cascadian cloth as Agalloch .. They have a similar nature-centric take on the music and a similar ritualistic approach to their live performances. Their songs are long and often hypnotic, with tribal percussion, and memorable, sweeping melodies. But they also know how to slash and burn.
I also hear some Panopticon, mainly in the way they seamlessly mix the black metal with dark neofolk-style acoustic passages. Alda also knows how to keep the listener enthralled during their longer songs, the standout track for me is the epic 14 minutes closer Wandering Spirit. Here's a review by Don't Count on it Reviews.
