Reactivated Bay Area melodic death metal outfit LIGHT THIS CITY has released the official video for the song “Agents Of Fate”. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming fifth LP, and first in a decade, “Terminal Bloom”, which will be released on CD, LP, and digital formats on May 25 through drummer Ben Murray‘s Creator-Destructor Records.
The “Agents Of Fate” clip was directed and edited by Shane Henry and it captures the band crushing one of the album’s heaviest tracks in an intense, high-action, low-light setting.
Comments LIGHT THIS CITY: “We’re thrilled to premiere the official video for ‘Agents Of Fate’ and we hope you all enjoy it! The band agreed that this song had a great combination of elements of the LIGHT THIS CITY sound — thrash all the way through with some melody, blast beats, and a big ol’ chorus that hopefully gets you headbangin’ and in trouble at work! We wanted to capture the dynamics of the song in as simple and intense a way as possible.”
“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.
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 effort “Stormchaser”.
LIGHT THIS CITY has announced a West Coast tour with labelmates GYGAX for late June into July. The “Terminal Bloom” West Coast Tour begins June 22nd in San Diego, then hits Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, and the final show hits Sacramento on July 1.
