With the song "Celestium Apocrypha: Book of watchers" Light Bearer finally set new sign of life that lasts for nearly 22 minutes.
The name is taken from the Book of Enoch, a non canonical chapter of the original Jewish scriptures. It is a play on what was deemed necessary to appear in the final canon, how whole sections of religious scripture were rejected, despite the so called authenticity of that which remained. Texts that were considered ham fisted or contrived or instances of repetition from other chapters and its political or societal influence limited.
The content is carried over part of the band's concept, a metaphorical story about the dawn of enlightenment, based upon a number of interpretations of the Judaea Christian version of the casting out of Lucifer and the fall of man from the book of genesis. The story is an intrinsic part of the mythological narrative of humanity, the subjective concept of good and evil.
Musically you should be prepared for distorted soundscapes, heavy guitar riffs, mystic vocal-arrangements guided by a strong voice and an emphasized union of drum and bass lines All those ingredients lead into an uplifting interaction of skilful played instruments that defines Light Bearer's own version of today's Post-Hardcore. Another strike that succeeded on full scale.
Northless contribute two new songs for this split. Their first recordings since the "Clandestine Abuse" album and it shows growth and depth as well as the well forged rage and inherent sadness they have become known for musically. Northless play heavy despaired down-tuned sludge metal, that sometimes cut loose in very little moments of melancholy just to pulverize everything that stands in their way. Unbelievable powerful if you regard that Northless is a three-piece band.
This split-release is housed in a gatefold jacket that was designed by Alex CF and marks another beauty of our release-section and your record-collection.
