Agalloch Mantle Product Type Compact Disc Heavy Metal Music Rock Pop

Track Title. 1 A Celebration For The Death Of Man. 2 In The Shadow Of Our Pale Companion. 3 Odal. 4 I Am The Wooden Doors. 5 The Lodge. 6 You Were But A Ghost In My Arms. 7 The Hawthorne Passage. 8.And The Great Cold Death Of The Earth. 9 A Desolation Song. Agalloch’s second album, The Mantle, is a leaps-and-bounds improvement over their first full-length, 1999’s Pale Folklore. That wasn’t a bad album, but it was hampered by a low-budget production job that didn’t suit the sophisticated tone of the music. The improved production is the first thing that stands out here, evident in the more detailed arrangements, the classier guitar tones, and the fuller overall sound. That said, the music itself has also evolved and matured. Along with the Katatonia-inspired guitar work and grim, scratchy black metal vocals also present on Pale Folklore, a number of other sounds work their way into The Mantle, among them prominent acoustic guitar-strumming and cleanly sung vocals, Scandinavian-tinged folk guitar-picking (the middle breakdown during “I Am the Wooden Doors” is straight out of Ulver’s bag), timpani percussion, and a few subtle electronic interludes. It is not just the range of sounds that’s impressive, though, but rather how smoothly they are woven together, creating an album that flows from beginning to end, using its entire 68-minute running time to make its point without wearing out its welcome. Agalloch’s biggest strength, much like the early work of Ulver and Katatonia, is their ability to create an epic type of listening experience without resorting to bombast or heavy-handedness, and that quality is plainly evident here. Factor in the excellent artwork and packaging (which features photos of the bandmembers looking very poised and European), and you have one of 2002’s most accomplished and surprising metal-related albums. ~ William York, Rovi.

Bbe 882i: Sonic Maximizer

The BBE 882i Sonic Maximizer is the flagship of the BBE line of SONIC MAXIMIZERS . With the patented BBE Process, music has a great “live presence”. Unlike some “exciter” devices which add artificial harmonics to the signal, BBE adds nothing artificial but instead restructures it to faithfully allow all the detail and nuance to be heard. Highs frequencies are clear, naturally brilliant and finely detailed. Lows are tight, well defined and harmonically rich. Electric and acoustic guitars have sparkle, clarity and definition. BBE brings out the harmonic complexity so each note of a chord becomes more distinct. Electric & acoustic basses take on a rich, earthy “CD” sound. BBE yields extremely tight, punchy bottom end without sacrificing the presence, clarity and bite on the top end. Keyboards and synthesizers take on new realism. Percussive and plucked sounds are clear and sharp; chords are rich and full-textured with each note in the chord retaining its integrity. Vocals cut through the
