Slow Death Lights

Story

Toronto’s Slow Death Lights is the kind of eclectic, moody and atmospheric metal band you might expect co-founder and producer Andre Skinner to be involved with. SDL first burst onto the scene in 2015 with their debut EP, “Broken Spirit Desert Nightmare”, for which they travelled to Joshua Tree, California to work with producer Brant Bjork (Kyuss, Fu-Manchu) at his desert studio. Having followed that success up with a self-titled LP in 2017, the band has steadily gained worldwide recognition, and are excited to once again share new music with their fans.

Slow Death Lights’ latest single titled ‘I Wanna Be Somebody’, is a cover of W.A.S.P.’s 1984 mega hit which features none other than original W.A.S.P. guitarist Chris Holmes as a special guest. Here, SDL serves up a moody half-time version of this primordial track, a fitting tribute loaded with mammoth drums, haunting vocals, layers of rhythm guitars and a lead guitar that will melt your speakers. The unmistakable Chris Holmes sound is all over this new version, which is tailor-made for SDL and W.A.S.P. fans new and old. An EP is planned for the fall of 2021, with a full-length album to follow.

Exploding Head Syndrome reviews the new debut EP from Slow Death Lights!

“They do also allow it to take a couple seconds to grab some air which adds some desert dust to the atmosphere before tearing off back down the highway again to finally reach it’s destination of knocking your face off. A great song.”
