If the album announcement from Wolves In The Throne Room wasn’t enough black metal news for you, here’s some more. Over the weekend, Agalloch announced details concerning their next album via Facebook:
AGALLOCH will release their glorious fifth full-length album “The Serpent & The Sphere” on May 13th (North America).
This is the band’s first new material since their Faustian Echoes EP in 2012 and their full-length since Marrow of the Spirit in 2010. And that makes us very excited. In addition to the announcement, the band posted a photo gallery with pictures taken from recording sessions for the new album, which apparently included a 100 year old zither (look it up). Hopefully we’ll see a new song in the near future.
