Filipino metal band Faintlight has released a live video of a new song entitled Rainfall. Yo – when the vocalist opens that mouth of his how is that not just pure magic? Amazing vocal chops on this homie from the Philippines.
Having never heard this band before I went to their Facebook page asap to check out their recorded material and was SUPER stoked to hear a style of metal that I couldn’t conveniently label under one genre title: metalcore, indie-rock, metal, etc…the first song off their debut full length Flight which was released back in 2013 starts off with a down-tuned metalcore style riff but then goes into a vocal section that has an Avenged Sevenfold type of groove, but then switch into a more indie-rock vibe shortly after. Goddamn – I gave up a few seconds after that and just enjoyed the music! Hahahaha…thanks Faintlight for reminding me to shut that brain off, stop overanalysing music and just enjoy it.
Highly suggest checking out the full length which is streaming for you all further down below.
