As the Valley of Death Becomes Us

Hi All,

We have a lot of news for our next record, tentatively titled: As the Valley of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade.
First, recording begins on January 25th with Joel Hamilton at Studio G in Brooklyn, NY. The record consists of ten
songs, with a lot of variety on the album. Words that come to mind are, shorter, faster, heavier, catchier. There are
also some very cool guests in the works. Keep checking back for more details.
Next, we are switching things up a bit with this release. Profound Lore will be putting out the North American and UK versions
of the CD, while Burning World Records (run by the infamous Roadburn Festival curators Jurgen and Walter) will be putting
out the European CD, and the worldwide Double LP.
We’re looking at a May 2011 release, and will let you know specifics soon.
Finally, some of the album’s artwork will be revealed at the end of January…it’s going to be pretty intense this time around, pushing some boundaries.
More soon.
Cheers,
Storm

12-30-09 Review

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.” – https://trashmansreader.blogspot.com





Forgive Us Our Trespasses Reviews 3

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…”


More Reviews

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

epic portentousness a formidable excavation of deeper truths about the

universe.”

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

listening.”

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.”
