“If you want to invoke the apocalypse, it helps to read the runes first. A Storm Of Light, like Killing Joke, Anaal Nathrakh and Ministry, always sound as if they’re accelerating towards some all-encompassing moment of reckoning, but their fuel is an endless tank of genuine disgust, frustration and a keen eye on the belligerent shitshow unfolding all around us – a perspective that becomes a vividly psychedelic experience.” – Metal Hammer
A Storm of Light was founded by vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Josh Graham — a former member of the respected post-rock outfit, Red Sparowes, co-founder and song writer in the acclaimed Battle Of Mice, longtime visual artist in residence with the legendary Neurosis, and creative director for the almighty Soundgarden. The band’s consistently changing lineup is currently completed by Domenic Seita on bass, and Dan Hawkins on guitar. Guest musicians have included Kim Thayil of Soundgarden, Jarboe, Nerissa Campbell, Carla Kihlstedt of The Book Of Knots, Lydia Lunch and more.
