From The Press Release
The fourth album from doom-laden hard rockers VESSEL OF LIGHT, Last Ride, is set for release tomorrow, October 23 via Nomad Eel Records.
A full stream of the album is available today, courtesy of Decibel at https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2020/10/22/vessel-of-light-last-ride-stream/.
“It’s definitely our most comprehensive performance to date,” notes vocalist Nathan Opposition. “Our constant strive is to better ourselves and keep growing as a band and I think with this album it really shows. The band’s sound combined with my grim storytelling makes for a terrifyingly good time!”
The most refined of VESSEL OF LIGHT’s releases, Last Ride is rife with depth, harmonies, the trademark riffs and guitar sound of guitarist Dan Lorenzo and creativity while also maintaining a familiar feel. Like the first the haunting first single and title track from Last Ride, “There’s No Escape” has a sinister lyrical theme, keeping in line with the darker subjects that permeate the record.
“‘Last Ride’ is really heavy, yet really catchy,” says guitarist Dan Lorenzo. “I love doom metal, but I have a child’s attention span so there are no long meandering songs.”
Last Ride has produced two singles so far – the title track and its dark accompanying video, and “There No Escape.” Pre-orders for Last Ride are available at https://nomadeelrecords.bandcamp.com/album/last-ride.
Last Ride track listing:
5-There’s No Escape
6-Web of Death
7-Awaken In Dreams
8-Voices of the Dead
9-In The Silence
10-The Death of Innocence
Founded in 2017 by Lorenzo, best known for his work with seminal New Jersey bands Hades and Non-Fiction, and Cleveland based Opposition, the duo released two albums, Vessel of Light and Woodshed, with Italian label Argonauta Records before introducing former Overkill drummer Ron Lipnicki and former Hades bassist Jimmy Schulman into the fold for the recording of a third album, Thy Serpent Rise. It wasn’t until VESSEL OF LIGHT’s first live show before a sold-out crowd at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom with Life of Agony that vocalist and the band’s new drummer and bassist finally met, merely hours before the quartet hit the stage.
VESSEL OF LIGHT is:
Nathan Opposition – vocals
Dan Lorenzo – guitar
Jimmy Schulman – bass
Ron Lipnicki – drums
