Marrow of the Spirit (Profound Lore)

Deft arc of progressive folk into black metal, but where the Finnish tar it together with thrash, Portland, Ore., fourpiece Agalloch practices psychedelic post-rock doom. "The Watcher's Monolith" wraps John Haughm's dead rasp in a root-canal riff, while the atmospheric "Black Lake Ni∂stång" hits a luminous patch of Tangerine Dream 13 minutes in. Crucible axes chisel "Ghosts of the Midwinter Fires" another 10. (Thu., 11:45pm, Barbarella Patio)
