A Pregnant Light - The Feast Of Clipped Wings
A Pregnant Light
Genre/s: Raw Black Metal, Hardcore, Post Black Metal, Blackened Punk
For Fans Of: Sump, Bone Awl, Integrity, Raspberry Bulbs
A Pregnant Light is something of an anomaly in the world of black metal. The one man band (led by a fellow who goes by the name 'Deathless Maranatha') does not abide by any of the usual genre constraints - the band sports a strong purple aesthetic, there's no strong Anti-Christian agenda and musically it's all over the place. APL's disregard for genre norms means you'll get 90s metalcore riffs, layered with black metal howls drenched in a layer of reverb or lush guitar tremolos a la Deafheaven. If you want an interesting, lo-fi black metal listen, I strongly recommend looking into this.
