CASKETS Is Back With Moving New Single “Guiding Light”

I realize that the new CASKETS single “Guiding Light” has been out for a couple weeks now. But I still felt the need to write something about it. This review is going to be a little different than others I write. Most people who know my music tastes are aware that CASKETS is one of my favorite bands. Their 2021 album Lost Souls was tremendous. There really was not a bad song on the album. Honestly, this band’s music touches my heart and my soul. I call it my “feels” music – I listen to CASKETS when I’m sad, depressed, worried. It’s music therapy.

Well, CASKETS recently released a brand new single and video, “Guiding Light”, and it’s everything that fans of this wonderful band could ask for – maybe more. In my opinion, this might be their best yet. It’s another emotional song that tugs at the heartstrings of the listener.

CASKETS is a post hardcore/alternative metal band from the UK. The current lineup includes: Matt Flood (vocals); Christopher McIntosh (bass); Benji Wilson (guitar); James Lazenby (percussion); and Craig Robinson (guitar). The band is working on their second full-length album via SharpTone Records, and if “Guiding Light” is any indication, it should be another masterpiece.

The thing that got me hooked on CASKETS was the unique sound. The music is melodic yet heavy, and includes some cool electronic elements. Flood’s unforgettable vocals are emotional and sincere and make you feel like he is experiencing the same feelings that you are. No songs sound the same, and it seems that the band’s sound and style are progressing and changing.
