A STORM OF LIGHT will be touring in support of their critically-adored Nations To Flames full-length released last year via Southern Lord Recordings! Featuring Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil and Indian’s Will Lindsay on select tracks, A STORM OF LIGHT’s Nations To Flames centers itself on the apex of human failure and bears witness to the fall of all governments, all nations, and all religions. Called, “the strongest STORM album to date,” by Metal Injection and, “the soundtrack to our damnation,” in a near perfect review by About.com, who further boasts, “… A STORM OF LIGHT have an intensity that burns with the fire of creativity and artfulness while still relaying the message of how seriously doomed mankind is,” Nations To Flames finds the band at their creative apex both musically and conceptually.
Nations To Flames was recorded with Travis Kammeyer (OCOAI, Generation Of Vipers) at Fahrenheit Studios in Johnson City, Tennessee, mixed with Matt Bayles (Isis, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Botch, Mastodon) at Red Room Recording in Seattle, Washington and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon.
