    but so are a lot of bands. being a path between milestones isnt enough credibility for all the fuckin hype that agalloch receives. Opeth, Tool and whoever else might be overrated too...but THAT hype makes sense to me. its understandable. why agalloch gets all this praise for basically ripping off ulver and adding a few post rock flourishes is beyond me i guess.

    I can understand the Ulver talk with "Pale Folklore"... but even on "The Mantle" I think they moved wayy forward from that on certain songs (not all, of course). I think they have somewhat of their own sound now with Ashes.

    i agree that they dont deserve to by hyped up as much as they are, but i dont think they're really "ripping off ulver" anymore. they seem to have moved into some kind of territory between ripping off ulver and ripping off katatonia. i guess this has kinda run its course, talking about agalloch is kinda boring right now

    Lol @ rare, obscure band being named esoteric.

    Not so funny if they aren't that rare and I just haven't heard of them. But, for now, it's funny.

    Oh crap, haven't heard of an "essential" band. Guess I'm a music newb. Any other essentials I should check out before I make a fool of myself again?
