If it's even as good as Marrow I'll be happy. "Into the Painted Grey" was great.

I think even Agalloch knew Marrow was kinda weak. Faustian was a move in the right direction and it will only get better i hope.

Haven't listened to it in a while but it was definitely a good record. It was different from the rest of their discog but I liked the metal aspects of it. Having actual black metal sections in Agalloch songs was pretty great.

I'm hoping the new Saor and Lantlos make up for this album potentially being underwhelming. I dunno though, I read one review that said the album was awesome. Hopefully this is just a grower. I mean, it's Agalloch; it's not like we're going to be impatient with the music.
