Agrimonia - Agrimonia

Agrimonia plays a mix of heavy sludge, and dark and brooding post metal. And crust, don't forget the crust. Even when Agrimonia takes flight on the wings of a post-metallic melody, everything still sounds so deliciously raw. Especially the throat rasping vocals does their very best to deny the listener any post-metal "prettiness". The songs are are expansive and lengthy, they move from place to place without loosing their sense of continuity. Even at their most atmospheric, you can always on a killer riff kicking in and keeping things moving. Check out the first song "The Unknown Bury Me" below, it is a lesson in how to build up a song with tension; when the vocal riff finally releases the tension, you know this is exciting stuff.
