Agalloch

Through the course of five albums plus the usual EPs and odds-and-ends, Portland's Agalloch carved a rather unique career for themselves, becoming a pioneer in the sort of laid-back, post-metal style that has become prevalent in recent times. Never an easy band to pigeonhole, one could find traces of doom, folk, black, and melancholic dark metal throughout their repertoire, always with a high degree of quality and depth. They initially formed in 1995 and became a core member of the early The End stable, alongside Sculptured with whom they shared membership, though they didn't play live until well into their career (their first gig was in 2003). By 2016, frayed relationships began to take their toll, and after three of the members left the band that year, sole remaining member and founder John Haughm announced the group's permanent breakup. Those three went on to create Khôrada, while Haughm regrouped and formed Pillorian, though that band has also broken up.
