Get Yer Experimental Black Metal On with Two New Falls of Rauros Songs

0

Falls of Rauros - Believe in No Coming ShoreFalls of Rauros were one of my favorite new discoveries of 2011. The “epic black metal” thing might seem overdone three years later, but this Maine-based band brings an expansive, experimental take on the genre that I really, really enjoy. Falls of Rauros lean very lightly on traditional black metalisms, opting instead for acoustic guitars and dramatic atmosphere, and it’s that sense of experimentation — and their penchant for writing infectious guitar melodies — that makes them stand out from the pack. They’re like the best parts of Opeth and Agalloch rolled into one.

So I was delighted to learn that they’ve got a new album coming out on October 1st entitled Believe in No Coming Shore, and that there are already two tracks from the album available for streaming. I like them both, but the 10:50 “Waxen Voices” is my favorite — such an aural adventure! Check ’em out below.
