On Friday, Swedish epic post-hardcore/metal outfit Agrimonia release their new album Awaken via Southern Lord, which was recently our Album of the Week. Here’s a little bit of what what we said about the album: “This is as much a celebration of metal’s power as it is an expansion around its periphery. Agrimonia have the riffs, but that’s really just scratching the surface of what they can do.”
Before the album is released, however, it’s available to stream in its sprawling entirety via Metal Hammer/Team Rock. Clear out a good hour or so to soak in its massive riffs and epic sprawl. It’s an early favorite for 2018, sure to remain in respectable ranking among the best metal albums of the year.
