If there were "none more black" than Spinal Tap, there are none more gray than northwestern gloom metallers Agalloch, whose folk-influenced sturm und drang is so moody it seems like a bittersweet soundtrack for dusk falling. Moreover, they manage to stretch that feeling out as elastically as possible; their latest release is an EP titled “Faustian Echoes,” which contains only one track lasting 21 minutes. Wear comfortable shoes. With Taurus and Musk Ox.
