The debut album of this hellish band from Tennessee What Will Be Has Been reveals a transcendent symbiosis, of Death and melodic Black Metal streaming to a euphoria of harshness and untamed brutality! Epoch Of Unlight take metal to new levels of extremity by feverishly carving musical plateaus with their blackish guitars, bloodcurdling vocals and stellar battery! What Will Be Has Been offers nothing less but unrelenting dark metal excellence! ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Epoch Of Unlight (pronounced "epic") has existed in various forms under different names since 1990. Initially, the band was named Enraptured. This incarnation of the band went through many line-up changes and played quite a few shows in the Memphis area before its demise in 1993. Requiem was then formed from former Enraptured members Tino LoSicco and Jason Smith, along with Danny Murphy and Justin Jones. A demo was released in November of 1993 entitled As the Image Slowly Fades... with a last minute change in bass players (John Henderson replaced Murphy). After another line-up change and a major shift in writing, original members Tino LoSicco and Jason Smith officially named the band Epoch Of Unlight in 1994. Randy Robertson was added as a replacement guitarist for departing member Justin Jones. Three months later, bassist John Henderson was replaced with Pierce Totty. Pierce had played in the band"s Enraptured days until he parted ways to play with Incineration. With this line-up, the band recorded its first demo Beyond the Pale in the summer of 1994. In 1995, the band was approached by Last World Records to record its first full-length release, "Within The Night..." Ten tracks were recorded in May of 1995 for a CD to be released in August. After 10 months of negotiations, the band realized that the CD was not going to be released. It was decided then that the CD would be released independently with some minor modifications. Some of the older songs that were considered incongruent with the band"s current style were removed. The release, "Within The Night..." then became a 4-song MCD. In May of 1997, Epoch Of Unlight returned to the studio to record three new tracks with intros. These songs have been released as a promo CD entitled "Black & Crimson Glory". In the winter of 1998, Epoch Of Unlight signs with The End Records. The album, entitled "What Will Be Has Been", features 10 songs and is now available.
