Eirian Agalloch is very much an acquired taste, and this is the best gateway Bandcamp has to offer. The musicianship and songwriting showcased here are undeniably masterful. Normally, tunelessly growling vocals might kill my enjoyment, but Agalloch's relatively quiet, sometimes whispered approach to such (barely) works for me. 4.5/5 Favorite track: Dark Matter Gods.

el_merko One of my favorite albums of all time. This album paints a picture in my mind of necromancy. As it turns out the real constellation Serpens is held by Asclepius who legend has it raises dead humans. Coincidence I think not! Favorite track: (serpens caput).

execute_epicurus This is perhaps the most artful black metal album you'll ever hear. Favorite track: Dark Matter Gods.

    Acclaimed Pacific Northwest metal band AGALLOCH have completed work on their new album “The Serpent & The Sphere,” the follow-up to 2010’s “Marrow Of The Spirit.”

    “The Serpent & The Sphere” sees AGALLOCH take their progressive musical oeuvre to another level, all while maintaining the classic AGALLOCH sound. It is an album that reveals the band’s darkest, most meticulously crafted, and atmospherically surging work of their nineteen-year career.

    Captured by legendary producer/engineer Billy Anderson at Cloud City Studios in Portland, Oregon (and mixed by Anderson likewise at Everything Hz), “The Serpent & The Sphere” represents the most glorious sounding AGALLOCH album to date. Making a guest appearance is guitarist Nathanaël Larochette of Canadian neo-folk band Musk Ox who wrote and provided the album’s acoustic interludes.
