Of Stone, Wind, and Pillor is an EP by American metal band Agalloch. It was originally meant to be released on 7" vinyl in December 1998 by Iron First Productions (with only the first three songs), but that did not occur. It was later released in 2001 via The End Records with two additional tracks: "Kneel to the Cross", recorded in 2001, and "A Poem by Yeats", recorded in 2000. This release was limited to 2.500 copies. The cover artwork, Le Cerf Se Voyant Dans L'Eau, was by Gustave Doré. [3][4]
