Stream Seraphim - The Light In The Distance On Stereokiller!

It has been almost a year since we recorded and we finally have our new record in hand. We couldn't be happier with them. Be sure to pick one up from the A389 Records website or we will have them on tour with us.

From the A389 website...

Our friends at Stereokiller have been kind enough to host the new SERAPHIM album ‘The Light In The Distance’ in it’s entirety. If you haven’t heard of them and like bands like Neurosis, Isis and Baroness be sure to stop by and give it a listen! You won’t be disappointed.

LP is available in the A389 webstore, Expanded CD edition is available via Chainsaw Safety Records. Here’s what they’re saying…
“Seraphim were always a very promising band but this LP finds a band coming into their own and proving that their songwriting chops are not something to be taken lightly. It won’t be long before Seraphim is mentioned alongside bands like Baroness, Kylesa, Torche as heavyweights in the forefront of metal. I cannot recommend this album enough.” - Words Of Evil

“Seraphim, with this release have truly proved capable of making a strong full length while maintaining some semblance of growth withing their sound. This all leads me to believe that if many loud music fans were to give this record the time it deserves Seraphim would become the next Mastodon. The opportunity for this 3 piece to build artistic and likable records is something that many bands never have the capability to do. Hopefully the record buying public agrees and supports them.” - Scenepointblank
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. But fret not. Seraphim bring youthful exuberance to the table, as well as the willingness to sprinkle each song with something extra that gives them an edge….Keyboards, e-bow and an array of pedals come into play throughout, only to solidify and diversify the album’s rigid core. The Light In The Distance is a mature, satisfying effort awash with carefully penned songs that are strong, memorable and evocative. - Exclaim!
