|Get some Sombres Forets and Gris up in this bitch. |
|Agalloch isn't really black metal though, and it's extremely difficult to find a band similar to them.|
That being said, I would recommend Enslaved's Axioma Ethica Odini, and Wolves in the Throne Room's Two Hunters.
|I didn't even see where you asked for recs similar to Agalloch. A lot of what I gave you isn't really similar to them. The first 11 albums I gave you are just essentials. October Falls and Drudkh are pretty much the only ones I gave you that could be considered anything similar to Agalloch's sound.|
|great recs hawks|
that being said, check out marduk, stabat mater, deathspell omega, clandestine blaze, vlad tepes, legion noire, and yes WITTRs Two Hunters
|Thanks for the recs, I'll check them out.|

|yeah ashes against the grain isn't realy a black metal record, if you want something like that you're better off looking at post-metal or some progressive stuff|
that gallowbraid record that was rec'd above does sound sort of like agalloch but it's not very good, even the guy who wrote it doesn't like it anymore
|Drudkh- Autumn Auroa|
..and like everyone else said Wolves in the Throne Room...
|did anyone even read what he was looking for? lol rec any black metal band you know and look cool.|
gallowbraid is the best rec if you want something similar to agalloch
