The new full-length album, Cosmos Tree by Guardian Of Lightning is out worldwide today! The band’s unique sound (which they refer to as thunder metal) is a fresh take on the metal genre, replacing the typical lead guitar role with that of an ultra-heavy thundering electric bass! The debut album Cosmos Tree was produced by Eurico Tavares at Stage Record Power Audio Studio. With the very start of this album it is evident that the electric bass is front and center, but the songs themselves are something magical as well. Highlights on the album include the first single (and title track) “Cosmos Tree” which is about the existence of humanity being the fruit of something higher. “Raise Your Sword” is a message of inspiration to suffering souls. We have the power to face negative energy and never give up when facing evil! “Sound of Thunder” is about the legend of the thunderbird which is a guardian that protects its people.
The press and media are eating this up too, with dozens of rave reviews from all over the world! Metal Temple gives the album (9/10) saying “If you love good old-fashioned musicianship without bells and whistles, but love prog elements and unique sounds, definitely check this band out” while Metal Kaoz says “this serves my sweet tooth’s needs for more bass in metal!” giving it (8/10). In addition, Arrow Lords of Metal gives it (7.7/10) and says “Cosmos Tree guarantees that you will bang your head!”. For just a sample of the highlights, see more here.
