A Storm Of Light Streaming Full Album

With its imminent release now less than a week away, today Noisecreep presents A Storm of Light's smoldering "Nations to Flames" album in its entirety. Listen to the album below.

Featuring Soundgarden's Kim Thayil and Indian/Nachtmystium's Will Lindsay on select tracks, A Storm of Light's "Nations to Flames" centers itself around the apex of human failure and bears witness to the fall of all governments, all nations, and all religions.

The album 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. "Nations to Flames" will be released in North America via Southern Lord Recordings on September 17th, 2013. More...

A Storm Of Light Releases New Song

In celebration of the forthcoming album release next month, today Pitchfork hurls forth "Lifeless," the eighth track off A Storm of Light's "Nations to Flames." Check out the song here.

Pitchfork describes the tune: "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."

Additionally, you can still experience "Fall" at this location, or hear "Disintegrate" right here.

A Storm Of Light Reveals New Album Details

New York metal alchemists, A Storm of Light, will unleash their new studio offering this coming September 17th, 2013.

Entitled "Nations To Flames," the 11 track follow-up to 2011 album "As The Valley Of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade" was recorded with Travis Kammeyer at Fahrenheit Studios, mixed with Matt Bayles at Red Room Recording, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Additionally, "Nations to Flames" features Soundgraden’s Kim Thayil and Indian/Nachtmystium’s Will Lindsay on select tracks.

Comments A Storm of Light founding guitarist/vocalist Josh Graham: "These songs are much more focused. Even the more ‘epic’ songs are shorter but still accomplish the same journey as the longer songs used to. We’ve ditched the rock elements of the last record and let our early influences of Killing Joke, Bad Brains, Metallica and Crash Worship seep in. We are bringing back the intensity of Black Ocean but with the speed and precision ore akin to our metal influences. While there are still some slower/sludgy tunes, some songs are twice as fast as the older material."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Fall
2. Apostles Of Hatred
3. The Fire Sermon
4. Omen
5. Dead Flags
6. All the Shining Lies
7. Disintegrate
8. Lifeless
9. Soothsayer
10. You Are The Hunted
11. The Year Is One More...

The band, wishing to give little away, states that musically the labum is "faster, much darker and noisier” adding that…"on this record, we have finally found ourselves."

Further information, including track listing, artwork and audio, will be revealed in due course.

Corrosion Of Conformity On St. Patrick's Day

You could spot someone that was going to the Corrosion of Conformity show a mile away in the French Quarter as they walked, sometimes stumbled, around in the hot afternoon sun of St. Patrick’s Day; black, worn band shirt, a few drinks under the belt, and a happy smile. Even in their stupor, they hovered around One Eyed Jacks just waiting for those doors to open so they could finally see their friends. Although many people coming go to numerous concerts a month, a good bit came just to see COC, the band that they used to go see in the small, dank clubs of New Orleans when they were much younger. It was a reunion for them. More...

SXSW 2012: Tone Def Touring Showcase with C.O.C.

After Pallbearer marched its audience toward a giant, gaping abyss at ND, I hustled a couple blocks west to Dirty Dog Bar. I learned an important lesson last year: If you don’t have a badge or wrist band, show up early to ensure you get into the venue. Last year, I showed up a band or two into the Metal Alliance show and missed Saint Vitus and Crowbar. Once the doors opened, the bar’s staff allowed a few badge and wrist-band holders in first and then opened the flood gates to everyone else.

The Atlas Moth did not bide its time in leisurely boredom like me. The Chicago-based space sludge masters were busy setting up for their second show in the span of a couple of hours. The group filled in the vacancy left by Rwake, who also bowed out of The Atlas Moth’s earlier show. Without their planetary light show that illuminated ND’s, The Atlas Moth’s performance was not as visually stunning. Their keyboards, effects and coarse tones updated the flowery texture of traditional psychedelia. Although they call Profound Lore home, The Atlas Moth could fit right in on Neurosis’ Neurot label.

Asymmetry Fest 2012 Lineup Revealed

The Asymmetry Festival will be taking place from May 3rd - 5th in Poland, with full details available here. The following press release was issued about the fest:

"Asymmetry Festival is a unique event on the Central European scale. Successfully organized since four years, draws fans of the alternative music scene not only from Poland, but Germany, Czech, Slovakia, Hungary and many other neighbouring countries as well. The festival constantly develops its formula in continuous searches for new music genres – genres which defy labelling. The event will take place, for the first time, in a special location on the map of Wroclaw – the XIXc. building of the Browar Mieszczanski [Bourgeois Brewery], which since many years is an important cultural point of the city.

"Apart from the location, the assumptions and priorities in attitude towards the invited artists have changed as well. Among the 40 bands performing there, there is a numerous group of innovative projects, which are difficult to come across on any European festival stage. So side by side with the legendary Sleep, Killing Joke, Red Fang or Amenra, the guests of Asymmetry will also witness performances of all-star groups, created exclusively to in order to open the artistic floodgates of musical visions and the need to evolve.

"Let yourself be carried away by the fun. Come to Wroclaw and become witnesses of something huge."

The lineup and schedule for the festival is as follows: More...

A Storm Of Light Seeks Permanent Drummer

Brooklyn atmospheric doom metal band A STORM OF LIGHT has issued the following update:

"In just over two years since the band's inception, A STORM OF LIGHT has had the honor and privilege of playing with many great drummers: Vinny Signorelli, Jason Roeder, Pete Angevine etc. While this band is built around revolving members both in touring and recording, we've decided that a central three-piece will make us sonically/rhythmically stronger. That said, we have decided to look for a permanent drummer, one that can make STORM their primary focus, and be part of the band for the long haul."

"When: ASAP. We will be recording in early fall and going to Europe from September 28 - Nov 1."

"Where: Ideally we want someone in Brooklyn/NYC, or damn close. While we are willing to consider people outside of the area (New Jersey/Philadelphia/Upstate NY/Providence/Boston/DC etc). Please keep in mind that we are constantly writing, recording, practicing, touring, so you will have to been in Brooklyn very regularly." More...
