Official digital bandcamp album download is available directly from the band: agalloch.bandcamp.com

European edition of the 5th album.

With “The Serpent & The Sphere” AGALLOCH deepen their musical body of work without losing one inch of their own classic trademark sound they have shaped and refined over nearly two decades. Taking their progressive and rock influences on higher levels, The Portland dark metal masters return with their most dynamic, prominent and rewarding musical experience.

AGALLOCH have once again teamed up with legendary producer & engineer Billy Anderson, who recorded the album at Cloud City Studios in Portland, Oregon and later mixed it at Everything Hz. “The Serpent & The Sphere” goes down as the best, most transparent and complete sounding album to date. Nathanaël Larochette of Musk Ox makes a guest appearance on the record, providing the album’s acoustic interludes.
