The eponymous debut album by the new Brooklyn, NY band featuring Josh Graham, Neurosis visual director and former member of Red Sparowes and Battle of Mice. The esteemed guitarist/vocalist is joined on this recording by bassist/vocalist Domenic Seita (ex-Tombs, ex-Asea) and drummer Pete Angevine of Satanized. Since then, rhythmic pugilist extraordinaire Vinny Signorelli (Unsane, ex-Swans) signed on as second drummer.
As one would guess by the pedigree, A Storm of Light is brutally hard-hitting. However, the group’s haunting harmonic drone meshes with guitar, vocals, and subtle keyboard layers, giving listeners more a sense of suffocation by drowning than a simple pummeling.
