This Light’s History Part 1
Well, you have to start somewhere.
So this is my first post.
I am a Canadian electronic musician who started composing and producing pystrance, or at least what I believed to be psytrance. I was inspired by artists like Skazi and GMS, who mixed electronic psychedelic sounds with heavily distorted guitars. That was a natural choice: I really like electronic music but my favourite genre is heavy metal, especially the progressive sub-genre. Favourite metal bands? Kamelot, Queensrÿche and Helloween.
So I started by composing three songs: This Light, which ended up also being the name of the project, Transmissions and Thieves’ Guild. Later, I also removed the electronic elements from those three songs and made pure metal versions of them, which, in its turn, led me to form a metal band, Hall of Dreams.
In my next post, I will continue on the evolution of This Light.
