“Even though I'm somewhat of a purist for clean vocals, these growls are done really well, and I'd be lying if I said they didn't fit the music. Besides that, I'm feeling a mix of Crowbar, Down, and some more unexpected stuff, such as hints of early Cathedral, and even Solitude Aeturnus. Growls are an easy out when you're not a strong vocalist, or when you just don't have the balls to sing clean. In this respect, I have nothing but praise for Destroyer Of Light and their decision to not only use clean vocals, but to use them effectively, and to not bury them in the mix to hide said flaws. For a first demo, the vocals are great. They have lots of potential and, to me at least, feel like they will be one of those acquired tastes (think Solstice's last proper album, "New Dark Age", or even Pallbearer's "Sorrow and Extinction" and you'll know what I mean) that not everyone can like, but most can agree that they help, rather than hinder, the music.”
