A quick note - song for the day will not update every day, just when I feel like it. So there.
Agalloch have long been one of my favourite bands, and Fire Above, Ice Below is my favourite song of theirs. The track embodies everything that is great about this band - a perfect mixture of black, folk and post-metal, mournful atmospherics, hair-raising guitar lines - this song has it all. The combination of the guitar and backing vocals at 3:55 gets me every time. Enjoy!
Agalloch recently released a new one-song EP, Faustian Echoes, which is just as excellent as the rest of their discography. So if you liked this one, do yourself a favour and check them out.
