Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life are very pleased to bring you the full album premiere of the upcoming new album, The Teachings/Death Reborn by Canadian black metal band, Blight.
The album is out via Black Market Metal Label on December 22nd, 2017.
Blight burst forth from the Womb of the Umbra Plasma back in 2008. As a singular emanation willed by our Lord in Gnosis, Lucifer. Initially a very low profile side-projects from ex-members of Vatican, Unquintessence etc. Which was only to release underground tapes (namely “hELIed” via Croquemort Records, and “Anarchonic Deathworship” via Heavy Penetration Prod).
After a brief hiatus from 2010 to 2011. G. McCaughry parted ways with the other member, as well as the subsequent online release of all recorded material thus far. A new pact was formed with ex-Insect, ex- Ontôs On members Pascal Pelletier, Cedric Deschamps & Rob Lapalme. All to create what would become the next incarnation of Blight as a full-lineup project.
2012 was a busy year focusing on developing that vision. As well as writing new material and preparing for an eventual come back on stage.
In 2013 the group released the short EP entitled “Death Reborn” (recorded at Sonic Stream Studio by Max Ducharme (aka Scythrawl) from Ether, Trails of Anguish, Nefastus Dies, Unquintessence).
In 2016, BLIGHT released yet another EP entitled “The Teachings,” showcasing their true potential and main direction.
Both Eps were eventually released in physical format, first in 2016, as a limited edition Tape/Cassette (96 copies), through Heathen Tribes, and now in CD format via Black Market Metal Label.
Through the years the band has played live shows whenever the opportunity presented itself. They have shared the stage with bands such as Anicon, Apes, Dark Circles, Deathbringer, Dépérir, Saccage, and Woe.
