Brooklyn metal crew A Storm Of Light will be releasing their fourth album, Nations To Flames, on Southern Lord on September 30 - ahead of that, take a listen to our exclusive play of album track 'Disintegrate' above.

For the record, their follow-up to 2011's As The Valley Of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade recruited Travis Kammeyer on production duties, as well as enlisting Kim Thayil from Soundgarden and Indian/Nachtmystium’s Will Lindsay for a few guest spots.

Says STORM's frontman Josh Graham: "These songs are much more focused. Even the more 'epic' songs are shorter but still accomplish the same journey as the longer songs used to. We’ve ditched the rock elements of the last record and let our early influences of Killing Joke, Bad Brains, Metallica and Crash Worship seep in. We are bringing back the intensity of [And We Wept The] Black Ocean [Within, the band's 2008 debut] but with the speed and precision more akin to our metal influences. While there are still some slower/sludgy tunes, some songs are twice as fast as the older material."

Head to the band's website to order the album.
