Falls of Rauros-Of Stone and the Stars in the Sky [tape,2007]

Since winter is still here its time for a little dose of black metal that creates pictures of snowy forests, cold winter nights and such things: Falls of Rauros come from Maine, United States and they are a (so-called) "North Appalachian Heathen Black Folk Metal" band. In 2006 they recorded Window of the Eye demo tape that was followed by Of Stone and the Stars in the Sky and Into the Archaic lp (self-released) one year later. In 2008 they released Hail Wind and Hewn Oak (Morbid Winter Records) and recently the Revisitation discog cd on Wulfrune Worxxx
Of Stone.. delivers two tracks that last over twenty minutes of melodic black metal in the vein of Agalloch, the fast and depressive back metal parts are followed by melodic acoustic breaks, production is decent sounding, vocals are the usual black metal screeches and fit nicely with the music, lyric wise the band deals with topics searched by bands such as Agalloch, Skagos, Wolves in the Throne Room, Oakhelm etc
the band offers Of Stone .. and Into the Archaic for free in their myspace
