AGALLOCH is scheduled to come together once again for Prophecy Fest in September. The event is planned to occur from September 7th to 9th in the Cave of Balve, located in Balve.

Don Anderson, the guitarist for AGALLOCH, mentions that the group will persist in reuniting for a select few performances. Additionally, Anderson discloses that the band’s longtime drummer, Aesop Dekker, will not be rejoining them, with Hunter Ginn taking over the role of drummer instead.

“After nearly eight years since the band broke up, AGALLOCH are reforming with the intent of playing limited shows”, said AGALLOCH guitarist Don Anderson. “The line-up remains the original three: vocalist and guitarist John Haughm, guitarist Don Anderson, and bassist Jason Walton. We will be aided by Hunter Ginn (CANVAS SOLARIS, SCULPTURED, RADICAL RESEARCH PODCAST) on drums.

“We will re-emerge, perhaps fittingly, from the Balver Höhle, which is a cave used by humans since the stone age, at this year’s Prophecy Fest. We’ve been fans of Prophecy Productions‘ roster of bands since their inception and are pleased to make this fest our debut after being gone for so long.”

“As long time admirers of AGALLOCH, literally everybody at Prophecy is stoked about welcoming this exciting and important band back on stage in Balve for an exclusive European show!”, Prophecy label founder Martin Koller adds. “The American metal pioneers are the perfect fit for the billing, the cave, and the festival. We sincerely hope that you love this announcement as much as we do.”

AGALLOCH originally disbanded In 2016, stating that frontman John Haughm and the other band members had decided to part ways.
