Full album stream: Leading Light – Protect the Sinner

Leading LightWhat a pleasure when the debut album from a new, young band puts a twist on several genres you love, produces a splendidly varied and polished set of songs, and sounds as relaxed and professional as any fully established band with a long discography to its name.

From those opening words, you’d be correct in assuming I want to hear much more from these Swedish guys in the future. What do they play — metalcore? Melodic metal? Prog metal? Djent? All of those styles, I’d say, in a package of very original compositions.

Rasmus Weström has a top-class voice, delivering dark and clean vocals, and he is also one of the guitarists. Johan Gustafsson on bass, Simon Östergren behind the drums and Axel Wennerberg, lead guitar, complete the line-up of excellent musos.

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.

  1. Wooo, I really like this album and I desperately need to find some new bands from Sweden to listen to (80% of my library seems to contain of UK bands). Thanks!

    I’m glad you share my pleasure at finding out about Leading Light. I suspect this going to get a lot of play in my office.
