23:16 - Czerny Reiter I only have III in physical format and have listened to Sentinel and Gnosis. Didn't seem like it would warrant delving much further.
23:13 - 3rdWorld Yeah I agree on it. It is mostly a problem with his latest for me. His early 2 albums were really sweet.
23:08 - Czerny Reiter I appreciate what the guy aims to achieve, but it is way too meandering and the BM parts are not that engaging. Gorgeous ambiences do compensate somewhat, but the heavier sections are often jarring or plain uninspired.
Aside from Autumn I (which I dislike due to the vocals) this is one great EP. Looking forward to the full-length album a lot, which will be released this year according to Jake Rogers himself (I've read it on the Facebook page). Obviously he's heavily influenced by Agalloch as I never heard music more similar to Agalloch before. But that's definitely a good thing in case of Gallowbraid.
Seriously, Salt Lake City, Utah is becoming a great place for bands seeing as both Gallowbraid and Caladan Brood are from there.
