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

1 stars Dreary. It's a word I hate, since I've rarely heard it said without a whining cadence and a north English accent. Dreariness is also something I hate in music and something copious on The White. It's not quite goth, not really the same as sadness, nowhere near anger or fire, not even possessing the feeling of a jam but simply a way to describe the blasé attempts to fill up musical time; listening to a band happy to record such dismal nothingness really disturbs me in a profound way.

There's no fun to be had with The White and if anything on it will incite you, it'll be the vocal clips occasionally layered over the limboid music drollness, since they're far more eloquent than this band will ever become. Everything else on the record is muffled strumming and whispers or else ambience of a kind that puts in you mind of no era or place but rather of wasted time. Perhaps that, at least, could bring out a little regret.

Don't mistake these songs for mood pieces, for laments or for folk (where's the storytelling nature, the risqué yet lovable rhymes or the energy that comes from sincerity?) - Agalloch have recorded half-an-hour of pure tedium and directed it toward fans of hypnotic music; that's a term that gets used in the press as synonymous with trance-inducing but in The White's case, the literal sense is more appropriate. NOTHING HAPPENS ON THIS ALBUM.

3 stars After the astounding Ashes Against The Grain I would greet any sign of life from Agalloch with fervent enthusiasm. In order to keep this kind of fan radicalism under control, Agalloch released this pleasant little EP filled with acoustic winter night music.

It's named The White and that fits the music just fine. Short melancholic acoustic guitar pieces with touches of electric guitar and subtle tricks out of multiple effect devices dominate this instrumental album. For specialists, the music here will have a strong Ulver ring to it, at least to the Ulver incarnation as it can be heard on the acoustic Nordic folk album Kveldssanger.

Halfway through this shorth EP, the quality of the pieces start to diminish a bit, but it if this EP gives any hint of the new sounds the band might be integrating in the future, I'll be even more eager for a new full length then I already was after Ashes Against The Grain.

5 stars 'The White' - Agalloch (9/10)

It is rare to come across an extended play, or other 'shorter' work of music by a band, that I consider one of their most beautiful and profound acheivements. Such is the case with Agalloch's 'White EP' however. A stunning half hour of neo-folk brilliance, the band manages to perfectly capture their trademark aesthetic and mood, despite skirting their heavier musical roots.

Despite being a very stripped down and simple piece of music, Agalloch make sure use of the saying 'less is more.' While the music might be dismissed by some as mere 'ambience' and nothing more, each track has the ability to grab the attention with it's sonic grandeur and deceptively simple beauty. 'The White' (like much of the band's music) is a tribute to nature; the music and soundscaping actively showcasing what it must be like to be surrounded by an endless forest. Acoustic guitars are the order of the day here, although a number of other instruments (ranging from accordion to piano to a ceremonial goat horn) are used to give the music the added warmth and variety it would otherwise suffer without.

Tying the EP together with a concept of sorts, is a series of script excerpts from the 1970's cult horror film 'The Wicker Man,' in which several quotes spoken by actor Christopher Lee are used. While spoken dialogue in music can usually be annoying, things work very well here; bestowing upon the music, an unsettling, existential theme.

A beautiful piece of music, this is a perfect contrast to some of the heavier music the band has done. Although it may have a different sound than the typical black/doom metal the band has built a fanbase upon, there is still the quintessential voice of Agalloch resounding through each meloncholic note.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Agalloch's lightest work, in terms of music, this album has very little metal on it. In fact it is almost entirely acoustic guitar, with some electric guitar sometimes fluttering around in the background, hardly any vocals and little percussion.

"The Isle of Summer" starts with a sample from The Wicker Man of children chanting "we carry death out of the village" fading away as a folk riff comes in. The acoustic guitars carry on throughout as the only heaviness on the release is heard at one part. Some gentle electric guitar takes over near the end.

"Birch Black" has some great folk riffing with, not too heavy, electric guitar filling the background with tribal type pounding percussion and a powerful ending.

"Hollow Stone" is an electronic ambient piece.

"Pantheist" has a pretty similar feel to Birch Black. There are vocals on this song, limited to choir "aahs".

"Birch White" starts with perhaps my favorite riff on the album and features Haughm reciting A.S.J. Tessimond's poem "Birch Tree" in typical deep whispering fashion. His voice, over the absolutely awesome riffing and some bagpipe in the backdrop which adds a haunting, beautiful touch. My favorite song on the EP.

"Sowlio Rune" is quite slow and ambient. Very moving.

"Summerisle Reprise" is a solo piano piece which starts with a familiar sounding melody, I think it is similar to the opening track. The piece moves along at a slow pace, varying slowly throughout with some real subtle electronic ambiance and ends with another sample from The Wicker Man.

Obviously the movie had some impact on the band, and this EP seems more like a dedication to it, than inspired by it. A superb work that is honestly near perfect. Lots of awesome folk riffing, great movement both in every song and the overall album, not to mention stunning atmospheres. Agalloch are the masters of creating atmosphere and they do so again with the "The White".

4.75 Stars Bump
