On November 13th, 2021 As Light Decays release their debut album System Of Division. Eight tracks of relentless and thought-provoking Australian thrash, designed to play through from beginning to end.
Vocalist Jamie Gaitskell on the album:
System Of Division is a traditional album that was inspired by the heavy metal greats of the ’80s and ’90s. Melding together our varied influences and styles, As Light Decays aim to deliver a thought-provoking experience to the listener, which will be enhanced with every consecutive examination. ALD’s debut full-length record is both a damning snapshot of humanity’s plight and a resounding and galvanizing call to arms.
Drummer Beau Unwin adds:
Thank you to the family, friends and fans who helped make this album possible. Its been a good learning experience, I hope that you enjoy what we have created, I strongly believe the best is yet to come, so stay tuned!
Guitarist Brett Dunsire says:
The intent of this album was to hopefully offer something that people can connect to.
I believe that the link to music is critical to our humanity. Sometimes simply for the joy in listening to a favorite track or album in a moment where we might need it, or more importantly by introducing us to a unique viewpoint or understanding which may lead us to introspection on our actions and ultimate place in this world. I hope this album might be a similar catalyst for people. Enjoy and play it loud!
