4.0 out of 5 stars One For 'The Mantle' Piece. 22 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's difficult to put into words how good this band really are. In some respects they are quite similar to Opeth, another wonderful band.
One word i'd certainly use to define the entire album on the whole is beautiful. The way in which the music and vocals are put together is simply beautiful. It was by sheer luck that i came across this band and i'm extremely glad i did.
Whilst listening to this album you'll go through a range of emotions. From pure happiness at the sheer brilliance of the band to depression due to the intensity of the songs and meaningfulness of the lyrics.
The acoustics are exceptional and the riffs on electric guitar highly original, the bass lines aren't bad either. The vocals range from death metal growls to sombre and melancholy singing. No matter what your tastes are in metal, you'll probably find something you can take away from "The Mantle" which you'll absolutely love.
"The Mantle" is a must have for Metal lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Desolation Album. 28 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
Arguably one of the most celebrated bands that isn't in the core of the mainstream, Agalloch have long since established themselves. Their name has been etched in stone forever more and will never be extinguished, no matter how good or bad the material of tomorrow is. The present state of the band is positive. Although there have been some complaints that Agalloch aren't `metal enough' to feature, the bands reputation is improving on an already solid foundations. `The Mantle', along with the other Agalloch albums, is considered a great victory in the eyes of the modern listener. Why? It's fusion of genres has not been done so well ... Ever? May be so. The cries are that Agalloch have developed a highly experimental sound which is bound to produce some shocks every time a new record is released. This experimental sound is a risk that the band have chosen to take. There are those who will enjoy it for what it is and those who will ridicule it for not being what it should be.

The confusion over the genre of the band probably hasn't helped boost the reputation of this Oregon outfit, but nevertheless, it still is steadily improving. All this despite the fact that Agalloch have been around for some time now, though it seems like yesterday that we were all being blown away by the mammoth sound of `Pale Folklore' which produced one great noise of adoration and produced a following of people not usually common with metal bands, or bands associate with the genre that don't step into the mainstream. I suppose, over time, Agalloch have become more and more mainstream. I, personally, don't consider this a band thing. To me, Agalloch's sound has always taken on a natural sort of progression, as opposed to a forced progression into completely the wrong direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply an amazing album 11 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm a massive fan of Agalloch and think all of their albums are amazing in their own way because each one differs slightly from the rest. However The Mantle has to be my personal favourite and an album I never tire of listening too. The music is stunning and with roughly half the tracks being instrumentals its very easy to just get lost in the music as it takes you on a journey. A special mention has to go to In The Shadow Of Our Pale Companion, an almost 15 minute long track which is perfect from start to finish. Put simply one of my favourite albums ever and quite possibly one of the greatest albums of all time. Buy it!
