Over the past decade black metal has moved past being a soundtrack to the illegal extracurricular activities of groups of Norwegian misfits. A lot of that change has to do with John Haughm and his longtime Portland metal band Agalloch, which he formed back in 1995. In that time they've remained constant, if not exactly prolific, without compromising their sound. Agalloch's Faustian Echoes EP—which consists of one 21-minute song—is the most theatrical piece of music Agalloch has recorded. It's as bookish as it is black. Agalloch's longevity is a testament to a band that has carved out a name for itself without actually carving its name into anything, or anybody. MARK LORE
