Lightning Born

Raleigh, NC


You may recognize the members of Raleigh’s Lightning Born, a heavy quartet of locals with an impeccable pedigree. Featuring Mike Dean of national crossover legends Corrosion of Conformity and a sterling cast of contemporary scene staples from Demon Eye, The Hell No, and Colossus, Lightning Born is steeped in North Carolina heritage and worships now at the altar of the vintage riff. Lightning Born has an unshakable dedication to the groovier side of metal; above that thump, Brenna Leath’s vocals would make Ronnie James Dio blush. Lightning Born harken just enough to heavy metal’s golden era to keep the faith, and they’re fun as hell, too.
