Light Bearer formed in 2010 in London, United Kingdom, the band is an allencompassing art, music and narrative project, based around a story written bytheir vocalist, who drew influence from the writings of Philip Pullman’s His DarkMaterials trilogy, John Milton’s Paradise Lost, and the Book of Genesis. anallegorical tale in which to forward atheist/anti theist and radical left wing/ feministideologies. The bands consists of Matthew Bunkell, lead song writer and guitarist,Joseph Towns, drums, Lee husher, soundscapes and keys, Jamie Starke, guitar,gerfried Ambrosch, bass, and Alex cf, Vocals, narrative and art.

The band play a mixture of melodic post-hardcore, progressive metal, post-rockand ambient atmospheric drone. The songs are structured specifically to follow thenarrative and therefore peak and trough in equal measure, mixing screameddesperate vocals with sung passages.

The story is split into four main parts, Lapsus, Silver Tongue, Magisterium andfinally Lattermost Sword. The narrative begins with the metaphorical casting out ofthe protagonist Lucifer, an angel so loyal and in love with god that he could notsubmit when asked to bow before humanity, personified as Adam. For this act he isbanished from heaven into the cold stigeon wastes below. Here he questions theAllfather - an entity who claimed the universe as his own. In doing so he realises hismaster has lied, and vows to reach out from his desolate prison and become hisnamesake - to pass on the torch of free will to all life in the multiple universes.

The story continues in Silver Tongue, Magisterium and Lattermost Sword in whichthe torch is borne by the metaphorical Eve - the mitochondrial ancestor ofhumanity, her rejection of the will of the false god and the attempted rebellionagainst Heaven, her role and the role of the prophesied second Eve. Theestablishment of the church and the eventual culmination and war against thepatriarchal god. « hide
