While A STORM OF LIGHT and SHRINEBUILDER have each played one west coast show to date, the bulk of these shows will be both bands’ first time in many of these cities. It is an honor to share this maiden west coast voyage with these guys, all of whom have been in some of the most groundbreaking bands around.

Thanks to Coalesce for having us. We had a great time, amazing lineup.
Thanks Trashman.

“A Storm Of Light are as close to being as un-self consciously post everything as any band I’ve seen this year. Heavy, devastating, beautiful, ironic, Spiritually sparse and yet expansive. They reminded me of what The Velvet Underground might sound like if they had begun in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2007, rather than downtown, Manhattan in the late 60’s. Adjectives seem inept. Much more meaningful are these images. They are as equally beautiful on record.” –

DECIBEL – 8/10 review (November issue) “Transcendentally rich.”

DECOY MUSIC – 3.5/4 online eview – “A Storm of Light have tightened the sound hinted at on their debut, offering an epic monolith of a record, rich in gloom, power, and textural layering. They are a bright spark in the darkness of doom metal, and their multitude of artistic integrity and vision will certainly lead to a devout followinG…”

MONTREAL MIRROR – 8.5/10 review – “Epic, sorrowful, cataclysmic and panoramic…”

TEETHOFTHEDEVINE.COM – online review- “After spending most of 2009 listening to decent-to-good-bordering-on-pretty-great albums, desperately awaiting something undeniably transcendent to cross my path, my prayers have been answered, loudly, by this ceaselessly creative, ultimately heavy and poignantly, almost overwhelmingly emotional release, an essential release in every sense of the word.”

THEOBELISK.NET — online review- “The overall tone is oppressively heavy and where the shifts between ambient and crushing were predictable and unsatisfying on And We Wept the Black Ocean Within, here they’re blended together for a new brand of musical heft that sets A Storm of Light apart…”

UNCUT – 3/5 review (November issue) “You find in its low-end judder and

epic portentousness a formidable excavation of deeper truths about the


BIG CHEESE – 5/5 review (Nov issue) “A ten-track emotion churning

exercise in sonic manipulation that soothes as much as it induces goose

bumps. From the opening swell of Alpha Law Of Nature Pt 1 through to the

chiming The Light In Their Eyes and the punishing double whammy of

Midnight and Across The Wilderness, A Storm Of Light have made a record

crying out to be heard.”

**MASS MOVEMENT – review (w/c 19 Oct) ” An aural panorama as beautiful

and apocalyptic as the artwork which accompanies this second release

from A Storm of Light. Crushingly heavy guitars and tortured vocals

segue into doleful strings, perfectly evoking this tale of devastation

and rebirth. The spoken words of the legendary Lydia Lunch flawlessly

capture the tone and intent of the music. Fans of Neurosis, the

prophetic warnings of Rachel Carsen’s ‘Silent Spring’ and Genet/Neurot

recordings in general will fully appreciate this release. Essential


EXPERIMUSIC – 8/10 review (w/c 12/10/09) “A Storm of Light not only

deliver on the promises of ‘And We Wept the Black Ocean Within’ but have

elevated themselves far above their expectations; one of the finest

releases of heavy music this year.”

Forgive Us Our Trespasses Reviews

ROCKSOUND – 8/10 review (Nov issue) “Astounding, yet chilling.”

ROCKSOUND – Damnation live preview (Nov issue) “A thundering sonic combustion of hurricane proportions.”

KERRANG – 3/4 review (19 Sept) “This is focused on song-craft and what unfolds is a majestically epic and intimidating soundscape. A haunting, bleak and impressive record.”

ROCK A ROLLA – Oct/Nov issue) “A resounding triumph.”

ZERO TOLERANCE – ONE PAGE FEATURE (Oct/Nov issue) “A powerful trio thoughtfully exploring a wide plateau of styles… whose power and oppression is derived from a newfound sense of direction.

SUBBA CULTCHA – review (21/09/09) “This time round the riffs seem even more titanic, the grooves even more grinding, and the arrangements more ambitious and spacious…this record is more than simply a worthy successor to their debut. With “Forgive…”, A Storm Of Light have transcended the “side project” tab and become something very special indeed.”

METAL REVIEWS – review (21/09/09) “Starting with intense percussion and gradually building melodically until before you know it the Doom riffage is in the driving seat and the melancholic beast is striding slowly towards the sunset.”

METAL IRELAND – 4.5/5 review and ALBUM OF THE MONTH(21/09/09) “It’s refreshing to hear something that is totally rooted in the band’s sound and aesthetic while moving it on substantially. It’s a fantastically open album that at the same time is utterly punishing at it’s most focused moments. It demands to be spun again and again, both for its accessibility and its slow burn.”
