In the years since their inception in 1997, Pacific Northwest band Agalloch has slowly risen to prominence as one of America’s best and most distinct metal exports, amassing an obsessive cult following of diehard fans in the process. Incorporating myriad influences, the group draws from many sub-genres—dark metal, progressive, black metal, neo-folk, post-metal—to establish a new standard, a sound wholly their own. Following early releases, Agalloch garnered widespread critical acclaim with their 2010 opus (and Profound Lore debut) Marrow of the Spirit, one of the most celebrated metal albums of that year. Expansive touring and exposure to packed and sold-out venues across North America and abroad saw the band take their career to the next level, attracting even more awareness and recognition. 
With their new album looming on the horizon, the group is poised to add another masterpiece to their impeccable repertoire. If Marrow of the Spirit was the apocalyptic unraveling of the mortal coil, then The Serpent & The Sphere is the cosmic aftermath whereby new dimensions and planes of existence are revealed and explored. The most atmospheric and progressive Agalloch release to date, the vibe is dark, expansive and otherworldly. 
The Serpent & The Sphere features the production and mixing expertise of Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Sleep, Swans, High On Fire); Canadian neo-folk musician Nathanaël Larochette of Musk Ox adds to the album’s acoustic interludes.
