The band’s name as well as its influences are connected with spirituality. Take the soul's rebirth during a cycle known as karma, for example. Many cultures have identified an astral realm (named in Tibetan as Devachan) where the spirit rests after its mortal vessel ceases to be. This is not a place of permanence however, but a dimension where the spirit can 'recharge' its energies through bliss and joy before it reincarnates and before the cycle ends.
Seven is a potent number relating to basic human chakras, deadly sins, stars and many others. Finally, the 'light' as featured in the song’s title, is considered as the beginning of everything (including life after death) but also the final destination, a source of unstoppable joy, and a spiritual messaging system too.
With so many references and a guitar driven industrial vibe, 'I Will Be Light (2015 version)' turned out pretty addictive. The overall composition is reminiscent of the well known simplistic 90s industrial approach with a fair share of both electronic and guitar driven arrangements of proper weight. The intro is expressed with dark ambient, then phat synth-based arrangements come into play, followed by mid-tempo drums. The core of the track is built upon low, chunky, repetitive guitar riffs and the drumming theme mentioned above.
There are select moments within the song where silence is incorporated to contrast the sounds and where metal guitar & electro synth amplitudes were slightly changed. As a result, these parts are accented better and draw the ear's attention more.
If heavier instrumental parts stand for the 'darkness', then the beautiful female voice casts the 'light' into the entire track. Listeners will spot that even though guitars are catchy enough, the vocal melody is of a traditional Arabic tone. 'Hizbollah' by Ministry or 'Temple of Love' by The Sisters of Mercy may be the closest matches to give you an idea of how it works here.
There's a feel of math rather than rage when it comes to the songwriting audible in this track. The spirit arises from the atmosphere because the mood is dark, heavy, hypnotizing, and seductive. Both the atmosphere and the repetitions make "I Will Be Light (2015 version)" a very memorable track.
Daniel, who's currently the sole member of Sekten7 has been in industrial/metal bands for a long time. He played all instruments on the track but also produced, mixed, and mastered it. He has been looking for a vocalist and plans on making new Sekten7 songs in the near future.
Many so called Lightworkers around the world have been reporting daily that the Earth energy grid has finally begun changing from the old 'me first' 3D patterns to the 'all is one' 5D type. Therefore, you may want to tune in also through this music; not just switching to somewhat corny New Age serenades but a solid heavy metal vibe as well. In any case, let the light-the spirit guide you as it neither knows boundaries nor judgment.
