Here is my best explanation:

'band' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'light finally disappearing' is the wordplay.
'finally' suggests the final letters.
'disappearing' becomes 'orc' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).
The last letter of 'light' is 't'.
't'+'orc'='TORC'

'of' is the link.
