EP Premiere: Ball of Light – Two-Song Seven-Inch

Representing the best of the Cincinnati metal and hardcore scene, Ball of Light sees their second release on Rad Girlfriend Records, this time as a two-song, seven-inch EP follow-up to their 2019 album Flux, out August 21. 

 

Bringing back an early ’00s sound, Ball of Light would have easily been at home with bands like Poison The Well, Converge, Cave-In, and Coalesce.  They bring a no-filler, no-nonsense approach to this record, and every part is executed with precision.
 
The heavy guitars and drums will bring you back to long-lost, beer-soaked shows in basements and VFW Halls across the country. They can do fast; they can do slow, but one thing is for sure, the riffage is heavy.
 
This time, they’ve joined forces with Gared O’Donnell from Planes Mistaken For Stars to play guitar and contribute some lyrics and vocals. Adding O’Donnell’s shredding and ethereal and caustic vocal melodies gives a new dimension to the band. These two songs are layered and complex.
 
“Ball of Light shared their first full-length, Flux, with the world in 2019. During the last few shows of a tour west, Gared O’Donnell (Planes Mistaken For Stars and Hawks & Doves) asked the heavy, Ohio trio if they wanted to join forces and knock out a seven-inch. Jeff Dean (Million Yen studios) was booked for time. These two songs are the result of four days of Chicago debauchery.
