Customer Reviews


You know there are about 400 bands trying to do the whole epic post rock thing. From the cleaner stuff of Explosions In The Sky to the heavier bands like Caspian and whatnot. Year Of No Light have always been far and away better than these bands but suffered from poor production and engineering. Ausserwelt finally shows the bands enormous sound on record. If I see a single comment about 3 of these tracks being "album only" i'm going to lose it. If you're dumb enough to be on the fence about this record and believe a single or a 30 second snippet will do it justice then please go die. This is wonderful.

I won't even bother with a review. The reviewer below hit it on the head. Read the review, buy the album, make sure you have good headphones, have 3 to 5 beers, enjoy, and repeat as necessary.

I discovered YONL completely by accident while researching Mum on iTunes and venturing out a bit. Even with the allowed 30-90 second samples I had to have this release immediately and downloaded. The result on 1st listen left me in an excited state of shock. I'm not intimately familiar with this genre but Ausserwelt is very special. The only way to listen to this is at very loud volume. If there are any others present that can't commit to this then wait for them to leave the listening environment. All those that will be present should be expected to refrain from any attempted conversation for the duration of the recording. I would even go as far as to suggest blindfolds. This is the 1st recording in which I craved to hear again almost immediately after it was finished.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The trance-rock/post-metal band, Year of No Light, hails from Bordeaux, France, where it was formed in the summer of 2001, and then slowly fermented both on-stage and in rehearsal before recording its first demo tape in 2004. This earned the group a reputation for sounding like "The Cure playing sludge," and opened the door for bandmembers Julien Perez (vocals, keyboards), Pierre Anouilh (guitar), Jérôme Alban (guitar, keyboards) Johan Sebenne (bass, electronics), Bertrand Sebenne (drums, keyboards),...
