Following a highly impressive, albeit short debut EP The Rise Of Hersey just last year, this newly minted purveyor of things old school has wasted no time in repeating the same winning formula in the similarly succinct ode to perpetual darkness dubbed The Absence Of Light. Though essentially a retrospective on the unique blend of chaotic elements that first shocked the masses in the heyday of moral panics and televangelism, this monster of an EP takes care to remind its audience that it is very much a creature of the present as well, as a single sampling of the bombast, theatrical symphonic prelude and title track “The Absence Of Light” leaves little doubt of its current character. Combined with a dank and dissonant blend of blurred tremolo riffs, crushing thrash grooves, a vintage mid-ranged throaty shout out of vocalist Alex Kafer that’s only slightly more vile than Tom Araya’s handiwork on Hell Awaits, and a creepy atmospheric production, this is the sort of fine vintage that any old school trustee will easily recognize.
