Customer Review

on 17 February 2014
Anyone remember British post rock, crustcore, The Fall of efrafa? After three successful albums they disbanded late 2009 but singer Alex Bradshaw formed his new group Light Bearer to carry on his vision of anti-religious and left wing / free thought ideologies. Silver Tongue is the second instalment on his theme from the writings of Philip Pullman's "His dark materials" trilogy, John Milton's Paradise Lost, and the Book of Genesis.

Vocal style is very much late The Fall of efrafa scream and grind, but not all, and the presence of Alex on vocal does give the impression that Lighter Bearer is The Fall of efrafa part two. Certainly not a bad thing!

Differences are clearly Lighter Bearer has more post-rock elements. Possibly because the inclusion of Lee on electronics to create soundscapes with guitarist Matthew adds the odd piano part. Beautiful Is This Burden starts the LP off with strings before the distorted guitar gets going. Matriarch's drone leads into clean sing vocals, background strings before they take the lead half way then the build up to an end with guitar, vocals and a marching drum beat. The longest track presented here is Silver Tongue running at 19:40.

The album is not all heavy, it has it's lighter moments and it's well worth a listen if you enjoy bands like Cult of Luna or Neurosis, Isis or enjoyed the albums by Fall_of_Efrafa.
