Feral Light are a band from Minnesota that plays a mixture of black metal and crust and this is a review of their 2016 ep "A Sound Of Moving Sheilds" which was released by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the ep and also adds in a touch of doom metal and after awhile the riffs start using tremolo picking which also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with some black metal screams being added onto the recording and the solos and leads also use a decent amount of melody.
Elements of post punk and post metal can be heard in the music at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while also mixing in a great amount of crust influences and after awhile the songs also start bringing in traces of black'n'roll while some songs also have a progressive feeling to them and most of the tracks are long and epic in length.
Feral Light plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in the modern style of black metal while also mixing in elements of crust to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw yet powerful at the same time while the lyrics cover war, history, and apocalyptic themes.
In my opinion Feral Light are a very great sounding mixture of black metal and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hell By Compass" and "In Glorious Battle Slain". 8 out of 10.
