American folk metallers Agalloch have made their new song "Faustian Echoes" available for streaming online at their Bandcamp page. The entire 21-minute epic track is the longest song ever written by the band and will be featured on their new EP titled Faustian Echoes, consisting of the one song, released through the band's own imprint, Dammerung Arts.

The EP will be available as a digital download at the Bandcamp site and the LP and CD versions will only be available at the shows during the dates on their North American tour (July 11th - August 11th) and will be available via mailorder after the tour.

Concerning the music, it was really a great song.

Can't think of anything but "OH MY GOD"
Kenos - 26.06.2012 at 20:24  
WTF.
Seriously, wtf.
Is THIS really Agalloch?
I'm not saying that I dislike it, but... wtf.

But it's not bad, quite the opposite actually! It just caught me off guard.

Ok song (for now), lovely production.

Just wondering, it says at the top the song'll be available for download off bandcamp, but atm it's only up for streaming - does anyone know when it'll be available for download? Ps found a load of Agalloch songs I'd not previously encountered on their BC, result

I've listened to it three times and I have to say I like it. It sounds a lot darker then any of the bands previous material.

Definitely !
it's kinda generic, but I'll listen to it more and see

Surprised me in a really good way. Good job once again, Agalloch !
Malaghost - 26.06.2012 at 22:26  
Uhm pretty average.

Yep, more incredible material from Agalloch. No surprise here.
Reaper_Redeamer - 26.06.2012 at 23:59  
Music is somewhat different from their album realeses. A different approach to their sound, more expirimental i would say.. Enjoyed the music, not enjoyed the talking parts... Would had better atmosphere without 'em imo...

The physical (vinyl and CD) version is being released on the upcoming U.S. tour so I suspect it will be available for download around then.

Exactly. They use their EPs for more experimental wanderings while their full-lengths are more "restricted" to a predominantly metal sound.

Is it worth it folks or waist of 20 minutes of my precious life...
...I will listen anyways, lol, even if it's horribad

It's basically a condensed version of Pale Folklore with some spoken word passages capped off by an intense melodic semi-climax leading into a purely acoustic/spoken word outro.

Hard to say if I'm impressed at all at the moment. Very simple stuff and drawn out immensely for seemingly no reason.
SODOM666 - 27.06.2012 at 08:19  
Sounds pretty awesome!! It feels like they visited their roots with this one.
saied - 27.06.2012 at 10:57  
Ooooooooooo my god

I can't wait for this
i wish i could attend the concert ooooooooooooo
Draugen - 27.06.2012 at 13:12  
Really good song. Nothing great or so but I still found it enjoyable.
Slayerus23 - 27.06.2012 at 17:44  
Superb song, still need to see them live.
Alex Fenger - 27.06.2012 at 20:36  
This is absolutely fantastic. I'm under the impression that these guys couldn't make bad music if they tried
BlueMobius - 28.06.2012 at 01:49  
Great song. Should hold me over until the next LP, which I'm guessing will not be out until 2014ish.
Marcus - 30.06.2012 at 20:20  
Pretty solid, sounds like their older EPs. Unnecessarily long (it could easily be 3 or 4 songs to the same effect). But, as usual, I think the sound clips add to the atmosphere, just like The White.
xbloodbirds - 06.07.2012 at 05:38  
I'm very satisfied by this release. I'm looking forward to seeing them live very soon. Is anyone looking forward to seeing "Faustian Echoes" live?
HaaskAksaaH - 08.07.2012 at 01:18  
Great ... especially the riff in 4:00 \m/
