06:13 - Fearmeister Yea, I never even finished that album and I was a massive Agalloch fanboi
05:45 - Apothecary Marrow Of The Spirit is definitely underrated, not sure why people say Agalloch went downhill with that album. I definitely don't think they ended on a strong note with Serpent & The Sphere though
23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
Swedish epic doom metallers Memory Garden will release their fifth album, Doomain, on April 12th/15th in Europe and April 16th in North America via Metal Blade Records. Doomain was recorded at Annoying Sound Factory & SolnaSound Recording by the band, with a little assistance engineering from Mike Wead (King Diamond) during the lead guitar sessions. The mix was done by Dan Swanö at Unisound studios in Örebro, Sweden. "The Evangelist" is available for streaming below.
The band comments: "The recording of Doomain must be the most relaxed album session we've ever done. We recorded most of the album ourselves in our own studio and took the time we wanted and needed to get it done. Dan Swanö helped us getting the rig together and he provided us with the tools to do it and from there we did it ourselves. The lead guitar sessions were done at SolnaSound Recording by Simon & Mike Wead. When it all was done it was sent to Dan Swanö and Unisound for mix and mastering. The final album is amazing and we are so thrilled to get it out to all of you."
Comment about the album title: "We wanted a short and effective title to this album. It's a little game of words referring to the style of music we play doom metal and the actual word domain. We see this album as a statement of what Memory Garden stands for music wise and this album is certainly down our alley, it's in our Doomain."
