Ball of Light from Cincinnati sees their second release on Rad Girlfriend Records, this time as a two song 7" EP follow up to their 2019 album "Flux". This time they've recruited Gared O'Donnell from Planes Mistaken For Stars to play guitar and contribute some lyrics and vocals. Somewhere between the late 90's/early 2000's Metalcore and classic Hardcore, Ball of Light brings the crushing rhythms, heavy riffs and fantastically brutal vocals embodied by the genre. Adding O'Donnells signature shredding and ethereal and caustic vocal melodies adds a new dimension to the band. These two songs are layered and complex. Ball of Light would easily be in good company with bands like Poison The Well, Converge, Cave-In, and Coalesce. They bring a no filler, no nonsense approach to this EP and every part is executed with precision. The heavy guitars and precise drumming will bring you back to long lost beer-soaked shows in east coast basements and VFW Halls across the country. They can do fast, they can do slow but one thing is for sure, they specialize in heavy.
