1.    Agalloch fourth full length album to be released through Viva Hate Records in Europe



Viva Hate Records will release their fourth album entitled ”Marrow Of The Spirit”, the official follow-up to 2006 full length ”Ashes Against The Grain”, in Europe in November 2010.
Not only does ”Marrow Of The Spirit”, compared to its predecessors, feature the fundamentally significant fresh qualitites which mark each new Agalloch release, but it is also the first album recorded with new drummer Aesop Dekker, also musically active in LUDICRA and  WORM OUROBOROS.
On top of that, ”Marrow Of The Spirit” is loaded with guest appearances by numerous musicians such as cellist Jackie Perez Gratz (GRAYCEON, GIANT SQUID, ASUNDER, AMBER ASYLUM), Jeffrey Neblock (VINDENSANG) and Nathan Carson (WITCH MOUNTAIN, SUNN 0))), TWO-TON BOA ).

The album was recorded and mixed in July and August of 2010 at Audible Alchemy Studios in Portland, Oregon, in collaboration with FAUST guitarist Steven Wray Lobdell, while the mastering was conducted in San Francisco at Trakworx Studio by Justin Weis (LUDICRA, SLOUGH FEG, HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE).
With its overall playing time exceeding sixty minutes, ”Marrow Of The Spirit” is definitely the most profound and sinister recording AGALLOCH have put out thus far.

Tracklist:
1. They Escaped The Weight Of Darkness [3:41]
2. Into The Painted Grey [12:25]
3. The Watcher’s Monolith [11:46]
4. Black Lake Nidstang [17:34]
5. Ghosts Of The Midwinter Fires [9:40]
6. To Drown [10:27]

2.    HALF SKULL// RUIN to appear at the legendary BERGHAIN (feat. Attila of Mayhem and famous artist MARTIN EDER) // Album in 2011

We would like to invite you to one intense night never to be forgotten.

When and where: October 7th 2010 at the BERGHAIN//Berlin
Start: 9pm

HALF SKULL is a collaboration between RUIN – the musical collective sorrounding artist Martin Eder – and soloist string player ensemble KALEIDOSKOP.
Classical elements of Neue Musik are interwoven with the somnolent essence of Doom and Black Metal for this sinister, scenic music performance.
Composed of minimalistic bass guitars, distant pianos and reverberating electronic music, this concert is an atmospheric mirror, a surreal and morbid epitome of intense music between Komacore, heavy-as-lead Black Metal and Ambient.
This evening’s special guest will be Attila Csihar (SUNN O))), MAYHEM).
Join us!

In 2011 an album is going to be released.
