The Progmatist
5 stars The Mantle is quite possibly the most beautifully desolate thing I have ever heard. Agalloch's masterful use of acoustic guitar rhythms underneath the haunting growls of creeping despair give this walk through deathland an ironically pastoral feel. And not unlike the grey wooded landscape that our wanderer traverses, the compositions - while broodingly sprawling - are familiar enough to be eerily comforting. In The Mantle, we hear the sound of a band that knows exactly what it's doing. From the ghostly atmospherics to the aesthetic guitar solos, this is unmistakeably a death march from start to finish, and one that, unlike the ruins of Agalloch's mankind, will not soon be forgotten.
The Progmatist | 5/5 |
