BURIAL DANCE (formerly Low Light) features a ton of people that know Tom Schlatter. You've got members from Capacities, What Of Us and more creating a unique and emotional twist on modern screamo. Thus far the band has only released two tracks digitally via 'A Shadow / A Vessel', leaving me primed for more.

Recorded by the incredible Steve Roche (Off Minor, etc.) the two tracks combine for only three minutes but pack a helluva punch. "A Shadow" begins with back-and-forth vocals amidst pounding-yet intricate hardcore. The change-up at the 30-second mark is fantastic, with the looping slowdown creating a cliff that BURIAL DANCE pushes the listener over come 54 seconds. I love the lyrics of, "Will I cast a shadow or disappear into the dark? Will I cast a shadow or fade and disappear? Will I cast a shadow or disappear into the dark? Will I cast a shadow or disappear like a shadow? And disappear like a shadow." "A Vessel" goes ballistic right from the get-go with sensational drumming and includes so many change-ups that I can't keep count. The final 15 seconds culminate in an excellent climax that swaps out power for speed and it's fucking explosive.

I hope we get new material in 2020 cuz these two songs kick some serious ass.
