2 stars 'Tomorrow Will Never Come' - Agalloch (Single)

Alright, a pretty standard formula for a Singles EP; having a slightly different version of an existing track and some fresh material to entice the fanbase. Being a very limited EP, both in it's availability and material enclosed, it's obviously not essential in any way and anyone not familiar with Agalloch might not find this to be worthy of any note, but fans of Agalloch will at least find some appreciation here, worthy of a few listens.

The 'Death Of Man' alternate version doesn't change much, but instead adds some fresh ambient sound effects and keyboards towards the end of the track. Personally I don't find it too entertaining both in it's original and alternate incarnations, but always found it to be a fitting introduction to 'The Mantle.' Without the rest of that album (an utter master work in every sense) there's not much point.

The second track (and the one of more interest to fans) is the fresh song, 'Tommorow Will Never Come.' This, like the first track is more or less ambient, and it's something that hasn't quite been heard from the band before. There's still the trademark band sound, but there's some very eerie narration and atonal sounds in it that give it an experimental flavor. When things build up to the songs recurring theme, accordions kick in and there's some real dark folk beauty here.

If you have a chance to listen to the EP (especially the second track,) then give it a listen. Nothing here will ever blow your mind and it's a far cry from the quality of some of their full- length album material, but it's good for a few interesting listens nontheless.
