Sadly Weird Light is a band that was short lived, but within that short lived time they recorded few songs which you will find on this re-releasing of Doomicvs Vobiscvm. This is their only recording emerging from 2007 which was only two songs, and on this release is two added songs which completes the full length that never saw the light of day until now. Even though the life of Weird Light was short lived they brought to the sinister and gnarled table doom metal that is pure and mystic and shrouded in atmosphere and darkness. These four songs that are on this album are pure doom and nothing else as Weird Light makes it a point to drive home the darkness and never ending abyss.
Doomicvs Vobiscvm was only a demo (as mentioned above) but with two other songs added this is the full length that never hit ears and never had the chance to darken souls and boggle minds all the same. Now as it is seeing the burning light of day it can spread across the lands and darken and banish as many souls as it possibly can. This release is doom of the highest respect and order as it moves glacier slow and shrouds you in darkness and consumes you with massive atmospheres and serpentine like musicianship.
Everything about Doomicvs Vobiscvm embodies doom and nothing else could ever convince you or tell you otherwise. This is slithering doom that works its way into your mind to manifest itself there and take over your subconscious. Weird Light and the way that they play enchants you and makes you feel as though you are in a trance. Their music takes over and the only thing that you hear is them and once one rotation of the album is over you press play to have another go around. Doomicvs Vobiscvm is intoxicating and incredibly powerful and memorable.
One song after the next rumbles on in a great buzzing and fuzz filled fashion that jars your brain right out of your skull. Weird Light and their style of doom is powerful and takes control over your mind as though a spell has been cast over you and the only way to have it lifted is to finish the album in its entirety. Not only is this release wholly hypnotic, but it is also very heavy as Weird Light forces buzzing riffs out of your speakers and into your ears and coupled with the riffs are the earth shaking bass lines. With solid and rhythmic drumming beside the guitars and powerful soaring vocals over the wizardry of the musicianship, Weird Light creates something potent and raw that is almost ritualistic.
This is doom at its finest with an earthy and raw feel to it. Weird Light were masters of doom as this album will let you know, and even though their career was cut short this demo now turned album will live on and preach the darkened word of doom. There isn’t much left to say other than; take a listen to Weird Light.
Doomicvs Vobiscvm will be out through Shadow Kingdom Records June 3, 2016.
