BENTWITHLIGHT - New Album Out Soon, Three Tracks Available For Streaming

USA based post-industrial rock/metal experimental act BentWithLight will release on 19th January via Latex Records a new album entitled Finul. Finul is the result of years of trial and error and experimentation recorded between 2011 and 2017 usuing a minimal approach and recording setup and requiring lots of revisions along the way. Some of the artists main influences include Skinny Puppy, Godflesh, Einsteurzende Neubaten, Psychic TV and Scorn.
BentWithLight was conceived in 1999 and by 2010 felt a large multi-track studio would be required to gain the sound they were looking for but later realized they had unknowingly accumulated the sounds that would influence their current sound sculpture after spending years building up a large sample collection of live dubs on CDr.
While BentWithLight (aka Stevey Seven) enjoyes creating their own graphic work, often from their own photography, the cover art was taken by DJ Textbeak while in Japan but was chosen because he felt it was a perfect fit for the album. Ironically, Stevey Seven previously of TVKill had taken his own hiatus around the same time as Latex Records founder TG Mondalf. Thus, while they met long ago during early DIY efforts, and TVKill has appeared on Latex Records before with their track "Trust" on the label's very first release Electro Age I: The Awakening, both were meeting again and returning from hiatus and experiencing a sort of rebirth after transformation.
Finul remains very true to industrial's roots and growth over the years and conveys a feelign of humanity within mechanization and commodification. The album is nihilistic to some extent but beneath the surface also reflects contempt for that philosophy. Like the cover image, "The Beast" represents struggle, conflict, and survivalism through either defeating the monster or becoming it. Three tracks out of the album can be heard in the Bandcamp player below. Link
