Black Light – Map of Truth (single)
Black Light is a Metalcore band from Ferrara, Italy, formed in 2012. In the early times, their music gravitated from an Alternative Metal style toward a Thrash metal one, then, completely turned into Metalcore. Black Light’s main inspiration comes from bands like Asking Alexandria, Architects and Miss May I.
The band has released their new single, Map Of Truth, on May 18th, 2018. It’s the first track taken from the forthcoming EP Set Yourself Ablaze, which will come out on label Sliptrick Records later in the year. The EP was recorded at Golden Factory Studio (Italy). They’ve also released an album, Storms and Shades, on August 2016. It was recorded at BassDepartment Studio (Italy).
First of all, I have to congratulate the band about their sound. They did a great job having a modern sound, without sounding plastic and fake like many bands on this genre. Their songwriting seems very interesting, with the riffs being aggressive and at the same time having great melodies, like the chorus, where you can listen to the very good change from the harsh vocals to the clean. One of the best parts of the song is the breakdown on 2:15 and the change to the chorus after that.
This is a very good sample of their new work and even me that I’m not so much into this type of music, I find it very interesting and I can’t wait to listen to the EP.
