• blinding light Junebug (digipak CD, £9.95)

    label: Init Records

    THE BLINDING LIGHT burst into the metal scene in 2002 with the release of their debut EP, Glass Bullet, which was well-received by fans and press. In 2004 the band released their first full-length, Ascension Attempt, and did some brief touring with CONVERGE and CAVE IN. In 2005, while working on their follow-up second album, the band played what would be their last show, and seemingly vanished into hiatus, with members focusing on other projects and bands, including a member joining NODES OF RANVIER. Flash forward to 2008 when Init Records approached the band members about a reunion show for the second annual Init Fest music festival in Sioux Falls, SD. The band played to a packed house and was well-received. The energy and excitement was in the air; THE BLINDING LIGHT returned to the stage, playing three more shows, with CONVERGE, MODERN LIFE IS WAR and MISERY SIGNALS. In the midst of all this, the band finally brushed the dust off off their unfinished follow-up album, and proceeded to finish it, marking their most monumental album to date, taking the band's sound to the next level; the final result, Junebug, has been highly anticipated by fans for years, often popping up as the subject on message boards and websites. Junebug was recorded with Mike Dresch at Cathouse Studios (NODES OF RANVIER, BATTLEFIELDS, THE SPILL CANVAS), and features breathtaking original artwork and layout by famed poster artist Aaron Horkey (ISIS, PELICAN, CONVERGE).
