The Skinny: Today New York’s favorite metal conjurers A Storm of Light has premiered a new track online. Titled “Fall,” the battering tune serves as the opener of the band’s forthcoming new studio offering, Nations To Flames. Nations To Flames was recorded with Travis Kammeyer (OCOAI, Generation Of Vipers) at Fahrenheit Studios in Johnson City, Tennessee,mixed with Matt Bayles (Isis, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Botch, Mastodon) at Red Room Recording in Seattle, Washington and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon.

Boasting some of the band’s heaviest, most confrontational and wholly thought-provoking material to date, the 11-track opus includes Soundgraden’s Kim Thayil and Indian/Nachtmystium’s Will Lindsay on select tracks. Elaborates founding guitarist and vocalist Josh Graham of the song, “Writing that song truly changed the scope of the record. It paved the way for this album and gave us clarity in what we should be playing.” Nations To Flames will be released in the North America via Southern Lord Recordings on September 17, 2013.
