Agalloch

Photo Gallery: Agalloch + Helen Money at Venue, Vancouver

 

One of the most anticipated shows of the year to date, the dark, progressive sounds of Portland’s Agalloch were well-received by the crowd at Vancouver’s Venue last Thursday (18th June, 2015). Touring to support The Serpent and The Sphere, their most recent release for “eclectic metal label” Profound Lore, the band played several Serpent tracks, interspersed with material from each of their previous full-length recordings. A compelling opening set by Chicago’s “doom cellist” Helen Money (aka Alison Chesley), set the mood for the evening with her muscular delivery of dark, foreboding cello and effects, combined with live looping.
