DYING OF THE LIGHT
is the result of the musical partnership between Chris Rigby and Rangi Powick who met in school in the 1980s. Together they formed sludge/grind band CHAPEL OF GRISTLE in the southern metal stronghold of Christchurch and had several underground cassette releases in the mid-late 90s. After the demise of CHAPEL OF GRISTLE Chris and Rangi were at opposite ends of the country but by the mid 2000’s the duo found themselves once again in the same city and formed DYING OF THE LIGHT
with crushingly heavy results. DYING OF THE LIGHT
list their influences as, but not exclusively to the following:
The superficial, self centred nature of modern life.
The growing gap between those who have money and power and those who do not.
The global warming scam and the lack of empathy we have for the natural world.
The agenda to centralise authority to one world government.
The lies we individually and collectively tell ourselves every day to be able to live in this world without going mad.DYING OF THE LIGHT
describe their sound as “Monolithic slabs of heavy as f#*k ass-kickery”
