AGALLOCH Call It Quits

In a short, to the point message on the band’s Facebook page, Washington’s influential black/folk metal act Agalloch have decided to end their illustrious career:

“Following 20 years, 5 full length albums, many tours around the world, and numerous other recordings, John Haughm and the rest of the band (Don Anderson, Jason Walton, and Aesop Dekker) have parted ways. What the future holds for the separate parties remains undetermined. We collectively thank all of our fans across the world. There are also way too many other people to thank who made this band possible. You know who you are.”

Agalloch burst into the USBM scene in 1999 with Pale Folklore, and released 4 more respected and seminal albums in the following years including their last album, 2014s The Serpent and the Sphere. Members of Agalloch have also served in other projects such as Sculptured, Subterranean Masquerade, Bloodbath, Andy Winter, Obsidian Tongue and others.
