At First Light are influenced by a wide range of bands that includes the following: Opeth, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Pantera, Zeppelin and Tool. Their songs tend be rather long, on average about 8 minutes in length and because of this they have been described as epic melodic black metal. Each song is very varied containing slower classical guitar parts with clean vocals, to faster more intense moments with black vocals, medium paced guitar and driving grooves
