Oregon metal act Agalloch rocked New York City’s Irving Plaza recently while on tour to promote their brand new album ‘The Serpent & the Sphere.’ Support for the show included the very talented Jex Thoth.

Agalloch frontman-guitarist John Haughm graced the stage and lit incense to create a earthy ambiance and scent that filled the venue and set the tone for the night. The band kicked off their set with the new tracks ‘The Astral Dialogue’ and ‘Vales Beyond Dimension’ and also performed ‘Dark Matter Gods’ off of ‘The Serpent & the Sphere’ disc.

For old school fans of the band, they dug into the catalog for ‘Dead Winter Days’ off of their 1999 debut album ‘Pale Folklore.’ Agalloch cranked out ‘…And the Great Cold of Death and Earth’ from 2002’s ‘The Mantle’ as well as ‘Ghosts of the Midwinter Fires’ and ‘Into the Painted Grey’ off of their 2010 release ‘Marrows of the Spirit.’

With five albums and 15 years of music under their collective belts, the veteran metallers are still rocking strong and their fans are right there with them. The encore of the night included a performance of ‘Falling Snow’ from 2006′s ‘Ashes Against the Grain.’ Agalloch ended their set with their lengthy 12-and-a-half minute new song ‘Plateau of the Ages.’

Female fronted band Jex Thoth opened up the show and proved to be the perfect compliment to the headliners. Thoth captivated the crowd at Irving Plaza with melody and mysticism, while showing a certain strength and force belting out contagiously raw harmonies.
