Agalloch - Faustian Echoes - The Grey - The White



Agalloch has made a new song, Faustian Echoes, available at their Bandcamp. It is a single, two-part song based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s epic masterpiece “Faust.”. It is also the longest song Agalloch have ever written. Islander from No clean Singing said this about Faustian Echoes:
The piece works in a melodramatic, sturm-und-drang mode befitting its source material, with a central section recalling the melodic doom passages of Yob, and fluttering guitar leads that reminded me a great deal of the last Cormorant LP—which is always a good thing. Much like their previous 20-minute epic, “Black Lake Nidstang,” Faustian Echoes has a remarkable ability to hold my attention for its complete duration.

Also, you can now buy the companion EPs The White and The Grey at the Agalloch Bandcamp. The Grey from 2004 is a re-interpretation of two songs from their second full length The Mantle, and The White from 2008 collects seven lovely neofolk and dark ambient tracks.
