A Light Within Short Info

A Light Within’s music is based on the translation of an unknown author's lost diary, containing experiences and opinions in subject matters such as life, love, and loss.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Step into the gloom, feel its warm embrace. Close your eyes and let the ambiance wash over you, the music unfolding into a wave of shoegazing post-metal. Distant, pained clean vocals appear in the haze, drawing the words from pages in a diary and turning them into a catharsis. The guitars flip from fragile melodies to thundering riffs at a moment’s notice, and the bass accentuates the deeper recesses of this stellar – in every way – sound. You are experiencing A Light Within." - statictension.com/

“A Light Within is a Kansas City, Missouri based post-rock/post-metal/shoegaze band known for songs that deal with the darker side of the psyche being celebrated in bombastic, beautiful anguish - doing so not only with thunderous power, but with a deft touch as well.” - Michael Byars, thedelimagazine.com

“The five-piece create epic, spaced-out post rock with hints of progressive, ambient and even the tormented sludge of Neurosis all incorporated into the band’s genetic make-up and the result is an outstanding collision of genres that conspire to leave you awash upon the fringes of your own vivid imagination as the music languidly wraps itself around you.” - Philip Stiles, SonicAbuse.com

"...this is music you can absolutely get lost in. Normally, a record that easily fades into the background would be the kiss of death, but the textures that A Light Within sculpt are ones that feel natural, and the mark of good music in this genre is its ability to feel like the notes are bouncing around in your head, rather than coming from a set of speakers." - Nick DeSimone, MetalInsider.net

“...a gorgeous, atmospheric number that strokes both the Deftones and post-metal thaw of Isis and Cult of Luna in one fell swoop.” - Dead Rhetoric, deadrhetoric.com

“...their is a certain beauty to it, an undying magic of a band who understand what it means to make music that reflects the soul and opens the heart. This is what post-rock should be all about.” - Matt Bacon, twoguysmetalreviews.com

“...combine powerful dynamics with passion and precision musicianship to create a sound that’s worthy of the description ‘Epic’.” - Christopher Nosnibor, whisperinandhollerin.com

"...is a band known for songs that tap into the darker side of being, all the while creating a sound that is epic and flush with beauty." - Brian Lacy, audioeclectica.wordpress.com

"...is a sonic treat for my senses! Man, I dig this band and their layered sound… top tier musicianship and vocals all the way. A true underground diamond in the rough is A Light Within. Whoa!" - Stone, metalodyssey.net
