Puppies On Acid
5 stars Sure its just an EP, but how can I resist reviewing this and making sure other people hear it. In my opinion, this does not sound anything like Marrow of the Spirit, like some may be expecting. Then again, Agalloch seem to refine and re-imagine their sound from album to album. With this EP I have finally grown accustom to Aesop Dekker's drumming and really come to enjoy his style, whereas before with Marrow of the Spirit I didn't really care for the drum style at first and preferred the drumming on Ashes Against the Grain and The Mantle much more. Now, being only 1 song and only about 21 minutes long, Agalloch still manages to cover a lot of ground here. I especially like the funeral doomish part in the middle and the spoken word parts fit really well. Agalloch is always treading new ground and I cant wait to see what they come up with next.
