Devastating Light premiers new lyric video for “III”

Finnish Post-Metal/Doom/Sludge outfit Devastating Light is going to release his debut album “I Have Already Failed You” on March 28th, 2021 via Planet K Records. To celebrate the event, a new lyric video for the track “III” is now available in exclusive premiere on Abaddon Magazine. You can watch it below.

Devastating Light is a DIY band from Tampere, Finland. Everything is played, recorded, mixed and mastered by Teemu Toikka, who is a seasoned veteran of the punk -scene in Finland. Devastating Light has stories to tell and the stories are all about the pain of existence in our modern time, mental health issues and the effect that has on a person and people around them.

“I Have Already Failed You” is a concept album about a man suffering from depression and becoming a father while the world is ending around him. It explores feelings of not being or doing enough and the fear of somehow passing on the disease to the child. Is it even right to bring a child into this world that is slowly ending?

The music is heavy in every way possible, sonically, expressively and thematically. The crushing guitars, slow beats and the distant screams create a bleak voyage to the deepest parts of the mind where you can find no escape from the pain and despair.

For fans of Neurosis, Old Man Gloom, Amenra, Cult of Luna, Envy and Swans.
