Fans of another "alloch" band may also fall under the spell of the dreamy post-black metal crew Falloch, a Scottish two piece that deals in atmospherics, black metal, post-rock, clean/tuneful vocals, and even touches of pagan folk on their debut LP Where Distant Spirits Remain due via Candlelight on September 26th. Name-checking artists like Arvo Part and Yann Tiersen in addition to enlisting the services of Ronan Chris Murphy (responsible for recordings by Ulver, King Crimson, Nels Cline, and others), it's clear that Falloch aims to walk along the righteous path of adventurous black metal bands like Alcest. Where Distant Spirits Remain is a great first step in that direction.

Check out the first track to slip out of the gate, "Beyond Embers And The Earth", available for streaming below alongside the tracklisting. So far, the band has yet to perform this material live but we'll let you know when that changes.

As if borrowing part of the Agalloch moniker isn't aping from them enough.

Their name is a waterfall in Scotland called Falls of Falloch. Nothing to do with Agalloch

3:03: Yeah, I just noticed that now. Still sort of a funny coincidence, no?

Open up your minds a bit, the Liturgy comparison is nothing but sheer ignorance. Abhorrent hipster fucks.

Jealousy is a bitch, at least they are getting somewhere unlike you filth who have nothing better to do than make negative comments. They will one day come back and smack u in the face. What goes around comes around.

Im actually enjoying it! I'm a big Agalloch fan, and this band is similar, but it doesn't give me the same vibes any
Agalloch song does (not lesser vibes, just different). Also, they're obviously not a tribute band, and even if though they sound similar (intentionally or not), i don't see anything wrong with having distinguishable influences, as long as you progress with the sound. You wouldn't call Agalloch and Ulver tribute band, would you?

Sounds cool..up untill the blatant lispy singing..Perhaps if he sang in Gaelic..that'd be cool..

ouch. i missed this post the first time around. those vocals are ridiculous... and then the pan-flute!?!? this is black metal for my grandparents.

I like the music and the overall vibe, but that clean singing sounds like fucking Linkin Park to me. Get rid or change the clean vocals and this would be much better. On a side note, you're telling me NOONE close to this band said "hey guys...your name is awefully close to Agallochs and you play a similar type of to change your band name"???
