Light Bearer - Lapsus 2x12"
Label: Alerta Antifascista
LIGHT BEARER formed in 2010 in London, United Kingdom, featuring ex and current members of Plague Mass, Momentum and Fall of Efrafa. The band is an all encompassing DIY art, music and narrative project, drawing influence from the writings of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, John Milton’s Paradise Lost, and the Book of Genesis. Despite the subject matter, their lyrical content is aggressively atheist/ anti theist, feminist and anti speciesism. It is an allegorical tale which directly deconstructs and derails monotheistic mythology, attacking religious ideology which has created oppressive cultural norms around gender, sexuality, race, species and progressive thought. The band play a mixture of melodic post-hardcore, progressive metal, post-rock and ambient atmospheric drone. The songs are structured specifically to follow the narrative and therefore peak and trough in equal measure, mixing screamed desperate vocals with sung passages.
