Nicholas Trandahl 'Marrow of the Spirit', written by Haughm in the Carpathian Mountains and partially inspired by the writings of Thoreau, is a turn to more traditional black metal structures and sounds for Agalloch. This album has a much darker and sorrowed quality than Agalloch's other albums. Beautiful work. Favorite track: To Drown.


Marrow of the Spirit, Agalloch's fourth album. Darker, colder and more aggressive than anything they have done in the past, but no less critically acclaimed than their other full-lengths. Recorded and mixed entirely on vintage analog equipment.
