Cavernlight "As We Cup Our Hands & Drink From the Stream of Our Ache" LP
There lies a dark secret deep inside some of the people you meet throughout your life. An illness, a prevailing shadow, or a past of regretful choices. Despite the facade constructed to hide these truths, there is a malaise that takes hold and controls the underlying intent for that person's actions. This is the Stream of Ache. This is the energy that drives ones actions although its source is a place where nothing nourishes.
Cavernlight was born from this stream, covered in the mire that lies at its bed.
The influences of Cavernlight are numerous and run deeply into different genres, but ultimately all of them have one thing in common... pain and suffering prevail. Whether they be doom, black metal, noise, dark post-rock or even inspiration from beloved singer-songwriters that have since been put to rest and whose sadness lives on eternally, each source of inspiration deals with a fundamental hurt. On this debut full length Cavernlight have finally found a comfortable, mature balance between their influences, inspiration, and intended narrative. Using these elements they have crafted an album of miserable doom laced with harsh tones and heart-piercing melodies.
