In today’s world, there is an undeniable, ever-growing sea of noise. Like an ocean, it swirls together the sounds of humanity into a churning vat of anonymity, and we are drowning.
It is from this abyss that Lesser Glow was born. A necessary change from the common kind, this Boston five-piece brings an undeniable heaviness, with lyrics and music coexisting in the same beautiful, dynamic and volatile space. Heavy but not excessive. Massive yet not gratuitous. Meticulous. Focused. Direct. Necessary.
With their upcoming debut release, Lesser Glow rips open a massively wide and confident blend of traditional doom meets melodic metal, paired with the likes of hardcore, post hardcore, noise rock, post rock and beyond. Molding all these into one cohesive mix, Lesser Glow stand out as a refreshing and unapologetically brutal take on what they define simply as “heavy music”.
With themes of crushing minimalism and a proper homage to our past roots, Lesser Glow present “Ruined” as a sonic shedding of the skin society has made us unquestioningly wear, and strips away of the excessiveness of modern man.
