Cincinnati, Ohio’s own BALL OF LIGHT is exclusively premiering their music video for “Forms And Formalities” with Madness To Creation.  “Forms And Formalities” is their single off of their January 10th release entitled “Flux”.

The three-piece hardcore metal band is composed of Charlie Williams on guitars/vocals, Patrick Cost on drums, and Paul Schroder on bass.  Ball of Light tapped Matt Yonker to produce “Flux” while Chris Fogal was behind the scenes for the mixing and mastering of their latest record.


Ball of Light is a heavy three piece from Cincinnati that plays rock and roll which draws influence from punk, metal, and hardcore. They formed in February of 2017 and entered the studio one year later to record their debut full length, titled FluxFlux intends to aggressively represent the highs as well as the lows of the human experience. Representing the best of the Cincinnati metal and hardcore scene, Ball of Light’s debut album “Flux” is 10 songs in just under a half hour that pummels you with crushing riffs, gutteral screams and pounding drums.  Bringing back an early 00’s sound, Ball of Light would have easily been at home with bands like Poison The Well, Converge, Cave-In, and Coalesce.  They bring a no filler, no nonsense approach to this record and every part is executed with precision. The heavy guitars and drums will bring you back to long lost beer soaked shows in basements and VFW Halls across the country. They can do fast, they can do slow but one thing is for sure,the riffage is heavy.
“Flux” available through Rad Girlfriend Records. You can grab the release through Bandcamp or through Rad Girlfriend Records.
