They have toured the world with Morbid Angel, Motorhead, Helmet, Unsane, Converge, Napalm Death, Coalesce and many others. Steve Austin, the iconic founder and front man of Today is the Day, has made a name as a producer, aiding in the creation of seminal albums for Converge, Lamb of God, Deadguy, and more. Widely influential, Today is the Day is accredited as one of the national starting points for Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor, who would later form Mastodon after spending time in the band in 1999.
The band released prior material with respected cult labels Amphetamine Reptile, Relapse, Hydrahead and Steve Austin s own Supernova Records before signing with Black Market Activities earlier this year.

So it goes without saying that the announcement of the band recording new material earlier in the year was met with much joy on my behalf. After all, I have been a big fan of these guys for more than a decade now, and despite the joy of being able to download MP3 albums with relative ease, I still like tracking down the physical copies of their releases as the packaging generally adds to the experience.
I was far from let down. In fact, I would daresay this is possibly the strongest recording from Steve Austin in a very long time. As much as I enjoyed In The Eyes of God, Sadness Will Prevail, Kiss the Pig, and Axis of Eden, I would rate this album as being in the top tier of their released output, equally good when compared to classics like Willpower and their self-titled release, but just a step below their masterpiece, Temple of the Morning Star, which was going to be a tough one to top for any band. Another point in its favor has been its continual replay value since it arrived; my attention span with new releases can be hit or miss, with A Storm of Light's newest album being the only release that saw any form of continual replay this year. This album easily joins that record's status as being worthy of repeat listens.
What makes this album truly great is how it blends everything that makes Today Is The Day interesting into one unamimous front.Read more ›
