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.
