Graham Bonnet is at the top of his game on The Book. His voice is as strong as ever, the songs are as classic as ever, and he proves that age is just a number.
Since the release of a handful of demos in 2003, Australian Black Metallers DROWNING THE LIGHT have been flying the CVLT flag and making huge waves throughout the underground scene across the globe. As well as becoming one of the most respected bands in the genre, they have also been one of the busiest with a discography of full albums, E.P’s, demos, cassettes, compilations and splits that dwarfs most bands twice their age. I will not pretend to have heard them all, though I have heard quite a few.
Everybody is out on the road now. Don Airey for instance, he is in Deep Purple. He plays keyboards in Deep Purple, and he is in three other bands. That shows you exactly what it is like. If you try to play solid in the States, for example in Los Angeles no one is really interested. It is pretty hard.”
