More experimental as ever, the Americans are tackling on this EP a style less used by Metal bands, meaning Dark Folk and Ambient. It's obvious that on every AGALLOCH album there are to be found experimental sequences within Metal, however, in this case, there are fewer aggressive harmonies, the voice being extremely calm and quiet. The 7 tracks present to us a completely different side of AGALLOCH, less accessible to the fans with more extreme tastes. The musicality it's at its best, the Dark note takes more meditative shapes, the sound seems colder and more atypical, we have a lot of acoustic guitar, accordion, piano, synth, percussion, harp and Peruvian horns… everything had a different form, different content, different dimension. Too bad that we are getting too few minutes of actual music, however, even so, the EP is avant-garde and full of savour!
