17:36 - Fritillaria You know I still blame both sides, imigration had always had its own issues. As I have a very oriental face and dark haired it sometiems freaks me out.
17:30 - Redn1ght Ah that. Haven't heard of a case like that. Kinda weird. It sounds like it would belong to the past. Back then that could've been true with some types.
17:28 - Fritillaria something like that a landlord says he doesn't trust to rent his apartment to a dark haired guy.
17:22 - Redn1ght Fritillaria it always depends on what is 'Discriminatory behavior' to them. :|
17:14 - Fritillaria hehe maybe you're right Red, sometimes I feel people are exaggerating about discriminating behaviors in Scandinavia, Lekiwi, hehe maybe you're right, but the landscapes are marvelous in Finland, BTW weren't you in Uk ?
17:08 - LeKiwi haha that's what you say looking from the outside :P Once you're there and you can't feel your fingers when you type...that's something different :P
17:06 - Redn1ght Meh, some may be bit 'racist' towards foreigners but not a lot of them. At least the mature ones aren't. Haven't encountered it since school really so I can't say...
Additional info "Faustian Echoes" is a single, two-part song based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's epic masterpiece Faust. Reaching over twenty minutes, "Faustian Echoes" is the longest song Agalloch have ever written.
Here's a little game I like to play: guess what genre the next Agalloch EP will be? From the blasting lo-fi of From Which This Oak to the strange semi-electronic remixes on The Grey to the acoustic laden, Wicker Man-themed The White, Agalloch has managed a wide spectrum on their music palette, which makes this guessing game downright impossible. One thing's for sure, the EPs are never similar in genre to the preceding album, right?
Awesome song. It was great live, although I think they should have kept the middle and end commentaries for the performance. Too bad they probably won't be able to play this one live again for a while.
BTW, those interested in buying a physical copy of this can now. The band has it on their official ebay for $12 + shipping. I don't think the CD version is a limited release, unlike the vinyl, so their should be re-pressings of the CD version.
Agalloch have never failed to deliver captivating music, and this EP continues that tradition of excellence. If you had always been curious to hear what Agalloch would sound like if they played a purely black metal song, here you go. This is 20 minutes of dark, aggressive black metal. Of course, the flourishes and crescendos that Agalloch fans know and love are still very much present, as is Haughm's impeccable sense of melody and Anderson's great lead guitar playing, with Walton remaining a crucial, but more subtle element on bass. Aesop's dynamic drumming is fast becoming a staple of Agalloch's sound, and again the man works wonders here. Overall, another fantastic EP from this fantastic band.
