Track Premiere: Light This City – ‘Terminal Bloom’

It’s been ten years since San Francisco melodic death metal outfit Light This City released a new album (they broke up in 2008 and played a number of reunion shows in the years following before returning in 2017), but the drought is coming to an end. Terminal Bloom will see release at the end of May, a triumphant return for the quintet. They dropped first single “A Grotesque Reflection” last month, proving they haven’t lost their touch, and now they prove it again with Terminal Bloom‘s title track.

“We’re super excited to share the title track from the upcoming record with you all!” says drummer Ben Murray. “‘Terminal Bloom’ is one of the heavier songs on the album, with basically zero melody – just pure thrash! We wanted to release a total banger for the second single to show our fans the diversity of heaviness within the record, and I think this one represents the influences we drive from classic Bay Area thrash and death metal. The song is definitely a ripper, and an unrelenting example of the pace of the album. We hope you enjoy it! Turn it up loud.”
