Reactivated Bay Area melodic death metal outfit LIGHT THIS CITY returns with ten blazing tracks that capture the band’s tendency towards extreme melody and intensity, honoring the Swedish sound of the ’90s. Having spent the past decade performing and touring in numerous other bands, the five members of LIGHT THIS CITY have only honed and shaped their skills and musicianship since their 2008-released Stormchaser. Terminal Bloom was recorded from December 2017 through February 2018 with Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Fallujah) at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, California, as with their previous four albums, and is wrapped in the vibrant cover artwork of Tony Midi.
Comprised of former and current members of Gypsyhawk, Skeletonwitch, Sorcerer, Huntress, Warbringer, Mantic Ritual, Pentagram, and more, Ventura, California-based GYGAX picks up where their 2016-released Critical Hits debut left off, the eight tracks that comprise Second Edition showcasing the band’s unrivaled and potent tendency to create absolutely anthemic rock ‘n’ roll hits, chock-full of hip shakin’ grooves and twin guitar explosions. Drenched in equal parts influence from Dungeons & Dragons and Thin Lizzy, the album showcases top-notch musicianship and unavoidably infectious grooves, Second Edition was recorded with Scott Goodrich at Nu-Tone Studios in Pittsburgh, California, and features the always incredible artwork of Fares Maese.
