Lesser Glow release 'Versterven' music video
Atmospheric doom/sludge metal practitioners, Lesser Glow, are pleased to unveil their haunting new video for 'Versterven'."Now playing at Metal Injection, the tune comes off the band's 'Nullit'y full-length released in April via Pelagic Records.
With 'Nullity', Lesser Glow rips open a massively wide and confident blend of traditional doom meets melodic metal, paired with the likes of hardcore, post-hardcore, noise rock, post-rock, and beyond. Molding all these into one cohesive mix, Lesser Glow stands out as a refreshing and unapologetically brutal take on heavy music. Conceptually based around the concept of human beings existing on earth as parasites, the scope widens throughout the course of the record, touching on creation myths, existence within nature, interpersonal and internal struggles, and finishing out with the mass extinction/cleansing of mankind.
The idea of Lesser Glow grew as a response to the unrealistic progression of heavy music in recent years... Generally feeling over-technical, over-produced, and sometimes entirely fake. "I was caught in a major '90s binge, listening to a bunch of stuff like Unsane and Failure, and feeling like that raw, palpable energy and songwriting was slipping away from modern heavy records," notes guitarist Andrew Nault. "I was tired of genre-choked bands and missed hearing songs instead of riff parades."
The lineup of the band came together organically. Vocalist Alec Rodriguez is the sound engineer for Chelsea Wolfe, guitarist Ben Gram is the manager of Cambridge, Massachusetts' finest live venue Sinclair, Seth Botos is a session drummer and music teacher, and Nault is not only the guitarist in Lesser Glow, but also a session drummer for electro-post-hiphop outfit Arms And Sleepers. The fact that all members are experienced professionals is a restraining factor when it comes to aligning schedules, but it has also helped the band stay focused on the essentials.
