Lights Bane

Rated 2/5 (40%) (1 Vote)

I can just imagine these guys rehearsing, driving the entire neighborhood insane! "Turn it Down-He Used to Be a Very Nice Boy", like an old lady would say on Frank Zappa's Joes's Garage or in their hometown of Portland, Oregon.

Lights Bane comprises only two songs, "Nothing" and "Black", for a total running time of 27:41. These two songs are basically made of two elements: heavy noises and sickness. The heavy noises come from distortion, feed back and pounding drums. The wicked raspy vocals handle all the sickness side, while creating a ghostly/nightmarish atmosphere all along the road. Slow paced Funeral Doom with a Black Metal flavor is Trees' way of life. Simple compositions with a noisy and psychedelic edge. Two songs might not seem long enough for a full length, but I'm not sure more compositions would have been a good idea either. I think that two long compositions of this type of music were good enough, and if there were more, it would have been a bit too much to handle. Perhaps you Funeral Doom fans will disagree though. "Nothing" is the track I liked the most.
