With its 20th anniversary landing earlier this year, now seemed about the right time to see if we could talk to Agalloch about their very first EP, Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor. While, as the band puts it, "it's just an EP," it notably contains some of their earliest recorded material (recorded prior to Pale Folklore, despite the later release date) and a cover of a Sol Invictus song that often gets misattributed to them. Beyond being a good listen, the EP illustrates the influences and songwriting craft that would shape the rest of their discography. We spoke to three core Agalloch members who played on that recording—John Haughm, Don Anderson, and Jason William Walton—and also invited Aesop Dekker, future Agalloch drummer, to give a foreword.
