Light Shines Black (CD)
Left Hand Solution's third release, Light Shines Black, begins a departure from the classic doom sound of their first two releases, Shadowdance and Fevered, both of which were more akin to, say, Solitude Aeturnus with a female vocalist. Light Shines Black, however, has a more accessible feel to it. Make no mistake, this isn't rock-n-roll. The guitars are still downtuned and ultra-heavy, but the riffing is more upbeat and catchy, comparable on both counts to Ethereal Mirror-era Cathedral, moreso than the early LHP material. Add some Mandylion-era The Gathering to that Cathedral influence and you have a fairly good grasp of what LHP was after with Light Shines Black. With the exception of an unfortunate and inexplicable Eurythimics cover, the rest of the songs on this disc will have you either tapping your feet or banging your head with glee.
