original by kokomo:
“kokomo do not sing. why? maybe you start thinking about some words thats up to this point have meant the most to you. maybe you pick those words up and dust them off and hold them up to a hotel room light and take a real good look at them. you poke your finger through their shine and peel off their golden coating, and for the first time you can see the inside of those words, and you are actually not too surprised at all to find that the insides of the words and the words themselves haven’t got a goddamn thing to do with each other. kokomo is an instrumental rock band from germany. we like to play as much as possible to present our own massive sound mixed with lovely melodies and indie-music influenced dance parts. we are young and strongly motivated. we try to do everything by ourselves, but we also love to work with our friends all over the world. we know that we didn’t reinvent the wheel, but hey we just wanne have a good time and hope that we sometimes could be different and that some people like our stuff.”
light bearer formed in 2010, from the ashes of uk post metal and hardcore bands fall of efrafa and dungeons. the band is an all encompassing art/music/narrative project, based around a story written by their vocalist alex, who drew influence from the writings of philip pullmans, “his dark materials” trilogy, john miltons paradise lost, and the book of genesis. the band play a mixture of melodic post hardcore, progressive metal, post rock and ambient atmospheric drone, the songs are structured specifically to follow the narrative and therefor peak and trough in equal measure, mixing screamed desperate vocals with sung passages.the story is split into four main parts, lapsus, silver tongue, magisterium and finally lattermost sword. alongside the four releases are planned ep’s and split records, beginning with “beyond the infinite, the assembly of god” – an elaboration of the introduction to the first album. a second narrative runs through records not included in the four main parts, which deals with the natural formation of the universe and the evolution of life.
