Golden Light are a duo from parts unknown that plays a very raw and atmospheric form of ambient black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Sacred Colour Of the Source Of Light" which will be released in April by Iron Bonehead Productions.
A very raw and lo-fi sound starts off the album along with a decent amount of blast beats while atmospheric sounding synths can also be heard in the background. Tremolo picking can also be heard during the faster sections of the songs as well as the vocals being mostly grim sounding black metal screams.
Most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Elements of ambient are also added into some parts of the recording along with some of the riffing also having its repetitive moments as well as all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them.
clean playing can also be heard briefly on one of the songs as will as the music also having its experimental moments, when guitar leads are finally utilized they are also done in a very dark style. The production sounds very raw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover madness, mysticism, death and the damned themes.
In my opinion Golden Light are a very great sounding raw, lo-fi atmospheric and ambient black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sceptre Of Solar Idolatry" and "Sacred Colour Of The Source Of Light". 8 out of 10.
