Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach has released a new album with his ambient side project, The Way Back Within. The album is titled At First Light, It Begins and features only 5 tracks, which are all available on Bandcamp. Leach spoke about record and how the crashing of his computer led to the release.
“My first Official Ambient album “At First Light, It Begins” is available on band camp now for $3.33 (link in bio above or search “The Way Back Within” on Bandcamp). This album is 42 minutes of deep meditative ambient music and field recordings of nature.
I draw my inspirations from nature and artists that have inspired and helped me along the way with my journey from @brianeno , @theorblive , @steveroachofficial and @chadlawsonpiano . I decided to release this today because my computer crashed last night with all of my new material on it I’ve been working on the past few months.
As well as 3 @dead_trees_official songs…I hope to be able to recover and eventually release that music…however in the meantime I give you 5 songs that brought me real therapy. I created these songs with sounds from various parts of the world. This is music made with the intention of helping to soothe and calm an anxious mind.
I love this kind of music or soundscape as some would call it. I frequently listen to ambient music to help clear my head and relax me. I hope this music helps people to be able to take a break from the chaos of the world and find some balance and peace, even just for a few minutes. Lastly I recommend wearing headphones for an optimum listening experience.
Thank you for your support friends 🙏🏼”
