By the morningstar a new day begins. Let the light of the lord shine bright and bring you strength. Let it illuminate what was dark, and give hope where once was only despair.
You are invited to listen to this new Heavy Metal album in the name of the LORD OF LIGHT. It offers shimmering timbres, keen rhythms and wondrous melodies by the hands of talented musicians and engineers, to bring you something truly radiant and exciting for the modern age.
The recordings of “Morningstar”, LORD OF LIGHT’s debut album, were completed in 2019. Nicklas Kirkevall, songwriter, vocalist, guitar and keyboard player states: “The music is what’s been bouncing around my head for the better part of a decade now. There are riffs and melodies that don’t seem to want to leave me so I have to make something of them not to go insane.” When the album was completed, it was uploaded on digital platforms and the overall positive response led to a multi-record agreement with No Remorse Records.
LORD OF LIGHT play a mixture of Heavy, Progressive and Power metal with a huge variety of influences that can lead them to uncharted waters. Vibrant and organic, and at the same time as hard hitting and powerful! Setting a full band ready for live shows in the future and already working on new material, “I think we have the chance to contribute something really meaningful”, says Nicklas.
