A Light Within Looks Through The Window

Ambient post-metallers A Light Within are proud to present a new track from the "Body Matter" EP, titled "World Through The Window."

The track exhibits the band’s morose and reverb-drenched sound, with vocalist Kyle Brandt delivering an emotional performance not unlike Chino Moreno in style, on top of huge chords and thundering drums. The guitars flip from fragile melodies to thundering riffs at a moment’s notice, and the bass accentuates the deeper recesses of the sound. Check it out below.

Kyle Brandt – vocals/keys
Jeff Irvine – guitars
Josh Bennett – guitars
Nick Sloan – drums
Andy Schiller – bass More...

A Light Within Releasing "Body Matter"

A Light Within will release the "Body Matter" EP via Static Tension Recordings on July 7th, 2015. The label also had this to say about the release:

"Step into the gloom, feel its warm embrace. Close your eyes and let the ambience wash over you, the music unfolding into a wave of shoegazing post-metal. Distant, pained clean vocals appear in the haze, drawing the words from pages in a diary and turning them into a catharsis. The guitars flip from fragile melodies to thundering riffs at a moment’s notice, and the bass accentuates the deeper recesses of this stellar - in every way - sound. You are experiencing A Light Within, who have an upcoming EP entitled 'Body Matter.'

"Whether in the mournful dirge of 'World Through The Window' or the swell that engulfs the latter half of lead single 'Between Shores,' this Kansas City-based group embody the notion of emotionally charged music. Drawing comparisons to bands like Junius or Deftones, they nevertheless carve out a niche that is wholly their own within ambient post-metal."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Torn Page #21
2. Page #22 _No Charge
3. Page #51 _Between Shores
4. Page #29 _World Through the Window
5. Page #13 _To Have; To Hold
6. Page #47-48 _Glaso More...

A Light Within Announces New Single

The Kansas City-based shoegaze post-metallers from A Light Within are proud to announce a new single is due to arrive next month.

“Between Shores” marks a departure from the band's previously Deftones-tinged material on the "Preface" EP into a much gloomier and more mournful direction. Vocalist Kyle Brandt's voice has shifted accordingly, taking on a somber yet dulcet baritone to complement the swelling chords and soft tremolo, with expansive ambient soundscapes to sweep the listener along.

The track rounds out the band's upcoming as-yet-untitled EP, due for release in late April 2015. In the mean time, check out the full "Preface" release below. More...
