4 stars Folk+Ambeint=Prog. Ever heard of such phenomenon?

'The White' was a nice surprise for me and the first 2008 record I really enjoyed. It reminds me of my own 'Vorkoma' EP - several instrumentals drawn together, mostly drumless, very atmospheric and ambient (FOLK-AMBIENT in fact), and nothing close to what AGALLOCH has been doing before. Wait, didn't I tell you that these guys are unpredictable?

Anyway, we have 7 tracks of 'overture' kind, that could have been used in previous AGALLOCH albums. My favourite one is definitely 'Sowilo Rune' with it's simple yet always working chord progression. Other tracks vary from acoustic guitar meanderings to purely ambient piano passages. The best thing about this EP that it creates unique atmosphere, and it's one the most ATMOSPHERIC albums I ever experienced. It's hard to recommend this stuff to AGALLOCH newbies, since it doesn't show band's regular material, but I would recommend it anyway. Amazing record
