ANCIENT LIGHTS SHARE VIDEO FOR 16-MINUTE TRACK ‘AGAINST NATURE’; RITE DUE THIS SUMMER ON RITUAL PRODUCTIONS

Following the announcement new band Ancient Lights shall be releasing their self-titled debut rite this summer, we now share a video for the 16-minute opus ‘Against Nature’. ‘Against Nature’ takes you on Ancient Lights’ musical journey where beaming, ambient auras collapse into formidable bouts of heavy devastation, creating an ever-expanding kaleidoscopic trip of otherwordly sonic shapes and shades. Side C of the double LP houses the entirety of this epic track and you can watch the video for it now over at CVLT Nation alongside an interview about the incoming rite…

Ancient Lights refuse to tread worn sonic terrain with their debut, instead crafting a dynamic and textured journey that explores pastures of darkness, ambience, radiance and disintegration. Comprised of members of esteemed bands of the heavy palette, the origins of the band came after 13 shadowy years of jammed discourse and psychic plotting between Adam Richardson (11PARANOIAS, Ramesses) and Ben Carr (5ive, INTRCPTR), with the optimal addition of Tim Bertilsson (Switchblade) catalysing the final reality of the band. Formed on the instinctual and perceptive jamming between the three pillars of the band, foundations build and soar into an outrè plane – resulting in a rite that is solemnly foreboding yet gorgeously ethereal. Melodic quietude meets searing guitars, and tempos flicker and manifest through careful increments and unseen bursts of velocity. One marker of Ancient Lights is the monastic-like vocals buried within the mix that resound deep within your brain, amplifying the ritualistic and lulling hues that enable imaginative escape.  Tracks such as ‘Temple Ghosts’, ‘Asakai Dasa’ and ‘Miasmaculatum’ burrow into murky, distorted depths that tumble amongst ruin whereas ‘Orichalcum Eater’ and ‘Fallow Year’ offer a sense of radiant space and dreamy psychedelic tones.
