If you've ever been a fan of the Portland four-piece in the past, you'll inevitably find something to enjoy about "Celestial Effigy," because it's more of the same, and what makes Agalloch so great. As expected, whispered and rasped vocals are back, and the ever-so-important, melancholy, acoustic intro makes a triumphant return. In all honesty, this isn't far off from material one might find on The Mantle or Pale Folklore, but I'm all for either of those. Bring on the goods.
Head over to Pitchfork and listen to the track here.
