A Storm of Light – Lifeless
The guitars at the start of “Lifeless” hang slow and steady and mean, suggesting the convoluted doom that’s familiar from A Storm of Light’s previous output. But the drums are fast, seemingly caught in a perpetually tumbling roll. that holds until the riff falls in line with the rhythm and the song rolls ahead, like an especially swift battle tank moving into position. That’s largely the premise of Nations to Flames, which finds the New York trio speeding up its songs without slimming their heft much at all. When “Lifeless” heads for its coda, supporting the band’s full weight with drums that refuse to languish beneath it, the strategy feels loaded and wonderful. Southern Lord releases Nations to Flames on September 17.

“A Storm of Light…are back to bring more of the epic doom goodness for which they’re known. I absolutely love the production and mixing on “Fall,” streaming courtesy of Revolver; it’s big and it’s clear, but it retains that rawness that’s so essential to this type of metal. Sonically speaking it reminds me a lot of Mastodon’s Leviathan…”
“A Storm of Light have premiered the first official taste of their upcoming record, Nations to Flames, over at Revolver. The new song is entitled “Fall” and it is hard hitting, sludge-ridden and straight to the point. It hits like freight train and grinds you underneath its wheels.”
A STORM OF LIGHT: New Track Now Playing At Revolver
Today Revolver Magazine offers up an exclusive track premiere from New York’s favorite metal conjurers, A STORM OF LIGHT. Titled “Fall,” the battering tune serves as the opener of the band’s forthcoming new studio offering, Nations To Flames.
Nations To Flames was recorded with Travis Kammeyer (OCOAI, Generation Of Vipers) at Fahrenheit Studios in Johnson City, Tennessee,mixed with Matt Bayles (Isis, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Botch, Mastodon) at Red Room Recording in Seattle, Washington and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon. Boasting some of the band’s heaviest, most confrontational and wholly thought-provoking material to date, the 11-track opus includes Soundgraden’s Kim Thayil and Indian/Nachtmystium’s Will Lindsay on select tracks.
Elaborates founding guitarist/vocalist Josh Graham of the song: “Writing that song truly changed the scope of the record. It paved the way for this album and gave us clarity in what we should be playing.”
Experience the sprawling “Fall,” now playing at Revolver, at THIS LOCATION.
The follow up STORM’s critically-acclaimed 2011 opus, As The Valley Of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade, centers itself around the apex of human failure. Nations To Flames bears witness to the fall of all governments, all nations, and all religions.
Nations To Flames will be released in the North America via Southern Lord Recordings on September 17, 2013.
