AXIS / Seraph the Light

With the digital release of Axis / Seraph the Light coming up on Friday, December 2nd, Good Fight Music presents a stream of the full EP.

Axis / Seraph the Light is a collaboration between Orlando, Florida's Axis and Memphis, Tennessee's Seraph the Light – the two bands teamed up earlier this year to write and record as one eight-man supergroup. Produced by Jon Nunez of Torche and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Full of Hell), the collab sees the new unit pound out an almighty-heavy sound inspired by Neurosis, Isis, Cult of Luna, Chelsea Wolfe, and more.

With the EP available digitally on Friday, Axis and Seraph the Light will hit the road for a short US tour, performing the new songs together onstage. (A vinyl release of the EP will follow in January.)

Axis / Seraph the Light:
Dec 2 - Tampa, FL @ Lucky You Tattoo 
Dec 3 - Margate, FL @ Inkwell Pub 
Dec 4 - Jacksonville, FL @ Nighthawks

Axis' latest release, Show Your Greed, was released on Good Fight in 2015. Of that album, Stereogum proclaimed: "If you think fondly of hateful Philly bands like Starkweather and Turmoil; if you were down with Converge and Coalesce back when they played mathy chugga-chugga-stop breakdowns; if you wish Botch, Burnt By The Sun, and Kiss It Goodbye had released more music: congratulations! You have the chutzpah to appreciate the good kind of metalcore... Axis pretty much stick to the established template for this kinda thing on Show Your Greed, but they are so goddamn good at it..."
