lmao that's bold. You're one of the few I've seen not fancy them. What is it about Agalloch (I'm not a fanboy, just genuinely curious) that puts You off? What do You think this album does so differently? I also freely admit I like Panopticon more lol

well agalloch have a contrived atmosphere, stale production, vocals that range from uninspired to insufferable, and banal instrumentals, and all this has is like muh big brained anti-trump borders are just lines in the sand dood lyrics for one song

Pretty sure the only way I'd consider agallochs atmosphere to be contrived was if I listened to all the two decades-worth of bands who wholesale copied it BEFOREhand. It'd be like watching a classic horror film and complaining that it uses too many horror cliches/tropes or thinking "man, these meshuggah guys keep on copying bands like Intervals and Periphery."

This is a great album but it is just so much to digest in one sitting.

Excellent album. Equal parts brutality and beauty. Grows on me more and more each listen.

No idea why this band is being compared to Agalloch there are little/no similarities between the two.

Because it has an ac00stic guitar and black metal vocals so it has to be like Agalloch!

My dudes, Yak was just taking a playful jab at another band. Panopticon is considerably distinct from Agalloch.

Bluegrass sections are a little disappointing in their simplicity. I enjoy the 2nd half quite a bit, but its not the same level of ingenuity I have come to expect from Lunn.



Growing up in the south, saturated in this style of music, probably removed a lot of the novelty from the songs as well.





Still a very solid outing overall.
