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]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.
23:10 - Netzach Agalloch are so damn uneven though. The Mantle is fantastic and I also really like Marrow... but as for the rest, meh.
The Black Dahlia Murder are releasing a new DVD next month and it is called Fool 'Em All. This will be the band's second DVD and follows up their Majesty DVD. Once again, director Robbie Tassaro captured the band on tour and this time around, you can put on your 3D glasses (included in the package) to experience the band in stereoscopic 3D in select scenes throughout the DVD. Fool 'Em All is scheduled for release on May 27th in North America and a few days earlier in Europe via Metal Blade Records. Take a look at the trailer here to whet your appetite.
