*There will be 2 opening bands for the show: Worm Ouroboros and Helen Money
Portland black metal band Agalloch are bringing their amalgam of atmospheric and dark sounds to the Echoplex in Silverlake.
Agalloch have earned a reputation for explosive and emotional live performances. They have sold out tours across Europe and the US and have played a variety of major festivals including: Roadburn, Inferno, and Scion among others. The band takes special care constructing the environment of each and every show with wood, incense, and imagery taken directly from their home in the Northwest. Such care makes an Agalloch show more than just a typical heavy metal concert.
Their album, "The Mantle", has been heralded as a classic for having been one of the first albums to combine elements from black metal, neo-folk, progressive rock, post-rock, and ambient music. The influence of this record can be seen in many so-called "post-black metal" bands today.
Their brooding, colossal, and cinematic sound provides the soundtrack to existential themes concerning man, nature, loss, and death. It has been said that Agalloch is to heavy metal what Ingmar Bergman is to cinema.
Don't miss this chance to see them play live here in LA.
