From Mississippi come Seraphim. Previously a young band with a promising seven-inch on their back, but in what seems like an instant they've become laudable songwriters prone to larger things. The Light showcases a band building on a solid foundation laid down by trailblazers such as Neurosis, Isis (Celestial/Panopticon era), adding touches of early Torche as well. Sounds like the ingredients for the countless clones that came in the wake of the aforementioned bands' successes. -Exclaim!
