Review from Aristocrazia Webzine

Poco più di un anno dopo Fear Rides A Shadow, gli americani Feral Light tornano a deliziare le nostre orecchie, con una particolare predilezione per chi è alla ricerca di certezze musicali di un determinato tipo. Questo perché Life Vapor è un disco che non ha la pretesa di innovare e rimane all’interno della sua comfort zone praticamente per la sua intera durata, ma questo non è un problema: quello che ci viene offerto ...

“Come sarebbero i Darkthrone se riuscissero a implementare in un unico sound le varie fasi della loro carriera?”. Questo quesito, per quanto possa essere azzardato, è il primo pensiero che mi è venuto in mente dopo il primo ascolto del nuovo lavoro in casa Feral Light. Quello proposto dalla formazione da Minneapolis è un black metal che incuriosisce molto per la varietà delle influenze che formano le sue fondamenta. Si senton...

Formed in 2015 in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota, in the United States by vocalist and guitarist Andy Schoengrund (Coagulate, Empires, Wolvhammer) together with drummer Andrew Reesen (Censer), Feral Light are a mysterious enigma playing grim and sorrowful Black Metal entwined with savage and unyielding Crust Punk, resulting in what can be labeled as “Blackened Post-Metal”. After a demo, an EP and two full-length albums, th...

Review from Metal Temple

Feral Light is a two man black metal band from Minneapolis, Minnesota and formed in 2015.  “Life Vapor,” is their third full length album; they also have a demo and an EP.  “Life Vapor” grabbed me from the beginning and never let me go.  I’ve always enjoyed black metal that dares to be different and FERAL LIGHT have definitely delivered an album that steps outside the box with a lot of great ideas.  None of that would mean a da...

The world is a scary fucking place at the moment, usually I start my reviews with a wise crack but it doesn’t seem appropriate considering what is happening in the home-town of the band that I am reviewing today. That home-town is Minneapolis, Minnesota which is currently in the midst of a major riot in reaction to the horrendous murder of George Floyd by the state police department. As a white English guy I can’t imagine what i...

Solo quattro anni fa i Feral Light uscivano con il primo EP, ed eccoci già con il terzo full length tra le mani, intitolato “Life Vapor”. Per fortuna, l’abbondanza di materiale e di uscite intercorse nel tempo vanno di pari passo con una certa qualità che fa da sfondo al gruppo americano, che anche col nuovo uscito lascia un buon segno. Quaranta minuti per sei brani nei quali l’ormai duo di Minneapolis disegna dei passaggi black...

Review from Wonderbox Metal

This is the third album from US black metallers Feral Light.

Feral Light play a mix of black metal and post-metal, with touches of doom and hard rock. Life Vapor offers up 39 minutes of easily-digested blackness.

The band aren’t short of riffs, frequently adopting a black ‘n’ roll approach. It’s surprisingly catchy stuff, and Feral Light clearly know how to write a good song. Merged with the atmosphere of post-metal and the black...

A primal ray of inspiration, fractally dispersed to impose greater darkness, best serves those who’ve lived in adaptive and necessarily untoward stasis. Bleak and shadowy forms serve as great cooling pools to slink between — Away from death and the brevity of hapless existential crises any above-average sentience’d naturally incur. With all manner of cursed dark mirror angled to invoke the moon’s light and reveal visions of dead ...

Das hardcore-geerdete Black Metal-Duo FERAL LIGHT hatte kürzlich still und leise mit ´Walking Tomb´ einen appetitanregenden Track ihres Albums ´Life Vapor´ veröffentlicht – und prompt ging das Teil steil via Twitter in den USA. Dort ist die Szene, anders als in Europa, nicht so sehr Panda-Schminke-Wacken-durchtränkt, sondern natürlich verwachsen im Hardcore. No frills, just skills. Diese klischeeferne Basis hat sich gefreut, dass F...
