Agalloch

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)
