Lesser Life - The Light Will Never Touch You Again

For a while I was playing drums in a band called Less Life.  When I heard about Lesser Life I figured this a band that has upped the anty on hopelessness.  It's good stuff, even with the uber depressing band name.

This band calls themselves "North Carolina Blackened Grind".  There is a lot of speed picking, double bass and chugging guitars happening here.  The vocals layout over top and vary between a high pitched shriek to a low growl. 

The songs are fast and relentless, assaulting you over and over with no sign of slowing down.  Lyrics seem to be largely focused on animosity towards organized religion.

You won't see me complaining, this is good stuff.

Listen to it here.
