Agalloch – 'Pale Folklore' 2CD (Deluxe Hardcover Book)

Double CD edition housed in deluxe gold printed 20cm hardcover book with 54 page book within containing a photo archive, lyrics, interviews and liner notes. Disc 2 contains 'The Demonstration Archive 1996-1998' plus bonus tracks.

Lavish reissue of the 1999 landmark, debut album. Though 'Pale Folklore' stands as Agalloch`s debut record, it already embodies several elements that later became part of the band`s signature sound. An audio amalgamation combining the profoundness of early Ulver, with the gloom of old Katatonia and the exalted boldness of Fields of the Nephilim, thus adding unique elements of nostalgia and atmosphere to their own melodic interplay of guitars and excellent musical framework. The album contains strong signs of a band that knew at a young age how to draw their canvas. Influenced by the landscapes of the American Pacific Northwest, and with an essence reminiscent of the Scandinavian wilderness, it firmly put Agalloch on the map and raised eyebrows about what a band from North America can be capable of.
 This is music that glorifies the night sky, envisions campfire magic, heralds nature over humans, arcane arts & poetry, and worships the beauty of a crackling fireplace. It could be the soundtrack for a lone wanderer striving through a wintry storm, only to end up knocking on a faded wooden door to find shelter in a desolate cabin. In many ways the sound of forlorn times.
