Burning Bright - Domesday

Band Request from North Cult Records - a new label
started by Benou from the great French band Direwolves.

With Burning Bright, Benou has hit the ground running - if this
is the quality of music he plans to keep on releasing, I cannot wait
to see what  comes next.

Burning Bright have members from Amanda Woodward and Aussitot
Mort (who I loved) and play a mix of hardcore/crust/screamo.

The songs are epic and massive sounding with filthy guitar riffs
that actually have tunes to them rather than a blanket of identical
tracks that blend into one sludgey mess. Great burts of solos are threaded
behind the powerful rhythm section which retain their brutal sound
thanks to an excellent production job.

The vocals are emotionally charged with passion but it is the
little details that make this record stand out - the sparse plaintive
guitar chords ringing out with distant reverbed vocalst in "Kalopsia"
or the horns/keyboard/samples at the end of "Dreamcatchers".

Highly fucking recommended!
