Biography

Portland, Oregon, United States (1995 – present)

Agalloch is a metal band formed in Portland, Oregon, United States in 1995.

For twenty years the Pacific Northwest group has defined what it means to combine influences from a variety of musical genres into one brooding, colossal, and cinematic sound that provides the soundtrack to existential themes concerning man, nature, loss, and death.

After two demo releases in the late 90s the band released three full-length albums: Pale Folklore (1999), The Mantle (2002), and Ashes Against the Grain (2006). “The Mantle” has since been heralded as a classic for having been one of the first albums to combine elements from , , , , and music. The influence of this record can be heard in many so-called “” bands today.

In 2008 Agalloch began re-releasing their demos, B-sides, and EPs under their own Dammerung Arthouse label. In 2010 their fourth album Marrow of the Spirit made number one on numerous critic’s top ten lists. In between each of these full-lengths the band pushed on the flexible boundaries they had developed around themselves through a series of EPs that found the band experimenting with post-rock/instrumental rock (The Grey), neo-folk/psychedelic folk (“The White EP) and a mammoth twenty-minute epic work entitled Faustian Echoes released through Dammerung Arts. Their fifth and newest full-length album The Serpent & The Sphere continues to earn praise for solidifying the now identifiable sound of the band.

    I'd rather recommend Agalloch fans to ignore obvious trolls with nicknames like "Damianek666XD".
