Review by Bonnek
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal Team
2 stars A stopgap between studio releases, Of Stone Wind and Pillor is a compilation of previously unreleased and rare material.

Of Stone Wind and Pillor is a rather disappointing demo that evidently wasn't selected for inclusion on the debut album, it's a very average composition with dull vocals and uninspired riffs. The performance is slack and unfocussed. If this was Agalloch's usual fare we wouldn't have heard of them. Fliorum Viridum is taken from the debut demo. It's a classical instrumental piece on keyboards, very symphonic and atmospheric but nothing unusual for dark metal bands around 1996. Haunting Birds is a clumsy bit of guitar strumming accompanied by big reverbed kettledrums.

The last two tracks are a real catch though, Kneel To the Cross starts with an entrancing pagan chant and turns into a great folk tune. It's a well performed cover from Sol Invictus that shows Haugm's grown confidence in the clean vocal department. A Poem By Yeats is another interesting piece that could have been a Dead Can Dance cover, featuring orchestral keyboards, spoken word and grave chants reminiscent of Brendan Perry's voice. It lasts 4 minutes though, not 8 and a half.

The last 10 minutes show a more reflective side of Agalloch and make this into an interesting release for fans. Not necessary for anybody else though.

3 stars Another interesting EP by Black Metal/ Folk Metal band Agalloch.

Back in 2001, Agalloch were just starting to rise, after their solid debut "Pale Folklore". For their ultimate masterpiece, we just have to wait for the following year, when "The Mantle" was released, and for their near perfect one in 2006, "Ashes Against The Grain". "Of Stone, Wind And Pillor" is the EP that stands in the middle of the band's glorious career;a mix between the old, Black Metal style with some interesting Avant Garde bends, and the new, folkish and bleak style that characterizes the following effort of the band, "The Mantle".

All the songs here are respectfully good, particularly concerning the new revisitation of the atmospheric song "Foliorum Viridium", in my opinion better than the first version."Haunting Birds" is an interesting atmospheric piece, with very good experimentation. Also, "Kneel To the Cross" has some really haunting and surprising moments. But there are some lowers; "A Poem By Yeats" is a little boring, and the title track is really nothing special. But still, generally speaking, the album has the good moments, and it definitely is an excellent addiction to whoever likes Avant Garde/Black Metal, or to any Agalloch fan. 3.5 stars.

3 stars A crossroads in Agalloch's career, "Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor" sees the band add more folk to their pallet, and an overall more subdued feel. In a way this is a condensed, and not fully developed, blueprint for their upcoming masterpiece, "The Mantle".

While looking back on it, this may sound a bit uninspired and not fully there, this a good EP. It kicks off with the title track which opens with folk guitar, then moves into what would become an Agalloch staple, the folk riff with a wall of distorted guitar. This song features a "real" riff something not to be seen with Agalloch for sometime... It continues on in a heavy atmospheric fashion. Good song, but feels a bit aimless at times.

Foliorum Viridum is the song off their debut EP, but its been cut off before the heavy part. Leaving this as a purely ambient segue.

Haunting Birds is a cool acoustic folk song.

Kneel to the Cross. This is one of my all time favorite songs by Agalloch. Begins with a pagan chant repeating over and over. The whole time a drone progressively builds, with instruments being added in. It grows to a dramatic climax before the classic heavy chord/folk riff kicks in and the song moves along with a moderate pace while John's wonderful vocals sing some powerful lyrics. Proof that Agalloch are the masters of atmosphere. Awesome and powerful song, a cover of the original done by Sol Invictus.

The EP ends with "A Poem by Yeats" a very mellow orchestral piece, reciting the poem "The Sorrow of Love" by William Butler Yeats. The delivery is very haunting. Song ends with 4 and half minutes of silence.

Good EP, the title track is decent but a little weak, while the middle is superb and has great flow, peaking with one of the most powerful songs and ending with a very subdued one. Though one that many metalheads will probably wind up snoozing too. I really like "Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor" and personally give it a 3.5 but this is an EP that is a release not all will find enjoyable and while good, is not too spectacular.

Three Stars

4 stars With this five-song EP, Agalloch deliver previously unreleased material which dates from Jan. 1997 to May 2001.
