I made this poll a long time ago. I wasn't sure then, but now I know that I definitely prefer Agalloch.

Agalloch. I always thought the distorted vocals in motW really brought down the quality of the music. I'm still a fan, but not as much as Agalloch.

Neither are bands I generally listen to, but my preference is MOTW.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

I can answer this, easily. I really liked The Mantle, but never will they touch the astral immersion of interspersed sharp brutality and trembling quiescence. If I want a musical journey, I put on Bath/Body Map. 'Nuff said.

Love both to death, but Agalloch since it's getting wintery out, and their music is just special then.

Gotta go with Agalloch. I just love their winter-themed, harsh music. MotW are pretty good too though.

Yeah... it's that specialness that makes them a winner for me, too. They resonate with me emotionally more than almost anything else.
MotW is also great.
Btw, I prefer Bath/Body Map to PtS, and Kayo Dot to all three.Tongue

motW is good, but I don't ingest it like crack as I do with other Driver projects. If everything was as good as Part the Second this would be much harder.

No Agalloch or atmospheric black metal band or black metal band or even any metal band can beat a group that recorded Part The Second.

Pieces like In The Shadow Of Our Pale Companion, Bloodbirds, or Black Lake Nidstang trascend music, im sure those guys are here to stay, and in some years, people will know them as pioneers of something we are yet to discover.

So, my vote goes for Agalloch
