BLIGHT burst forth from the Womb of the UmbraPlasma back in 2008, as a singular emanation willed by our Lord in Gnosis, Lucifer. Initially a very low profile side-projects from ex-members of VATICAN, UNQUINTESSENCE, (etc), which was only to release underground tapes (namely „hELIed“ via Croquemort Records, and „Anarchonic Deathworship“ via Heavy Penetration Prod).
After a brief hiatus from 2010 to 2011 and G. McCaughry parting ways with the other member, as well as the subsequent online release of all recorded material thus far, a new pact was formed with ex-Insect, ex- Ontôs On members Pascal Pelletier, Cedric Deschamps & Rob Lapalme, to create what would become the next incarnation of BLIGHT as a full-lineup project.
2012 was a busy year focusing on developing that vision, writing new material and preparing for an eventual come back on stage.
In 2013 the group released the short Ep entitled „Death Reborn“ (recorded at Sonic Stream Studio by Max Ducharme (aka Scythrawl) from Ether, Trails of Anguish, Nefastus Dies, Unquintessence).
In 2016, BLIGHT released yet another Ep entitled „The Teachings,“ showcasing their true potential and main direction.
Both Eps were eventually released in physical format, first in 2016, as a limited edition Tape/Cassette (96 copies), through Heathen Tribes, and now in CD format via Black Market Metal Label.
Through the years the band has played live shows whenever the opportunity presented itself and has shared the stage with bands such as Anicon, Apes, Dark Circles, Deathbringer, Dépérir, Saccage, and Woe.
BLIGHT is now deep into finishing and polishing tracks for an upcoming full-length album, to be recorded sometime in 2018, which will mark significant improvements in both sound & philosophical approach.
Vocalist/Lyricist G. McCaughry is also the founder of the Occult publishing house, Anathema Publishing Ltd. (www.anathemapublishing.com)
