Cruz Del Sur Music
Release date: 10.03.2017
Germany’s LUNAR SHADOW built a strong reputation over the last 2 years through word of mouth and a selected release and live activity. Their first 2015’s EP “Triumphator” was nominated “Demo Of The Month” on German Rock Hard magazine and since then the band has had a chance to play live with the likes of Atlantean Kodex, Dark Forest and Argus, also including a set on the prestigious Harder Than Steel festival in their homeland.
'Far From Light' is their debut album and delivers eight brand new songs of epic, melodic, thoughtful and proudly regressive Metal. There are so many different details in the 60 minutes of the album, that “Far From Light” really needs more than a couple of plays to be fully discovered and appreciated. The band likes to surprise with a continuous changes of pace and speed, the vortex of guitar solos thrown on the table makes an ambitious trial get to the essence of “Far From Light”. The main reference is to traditional metal acts (the melancholy of Warlord fulfils the album for example), but LUNAR SHADOW likes to develop its personal sound also through epic ballads even throwing in some doom and black metal elements.
For Fans of Solstice, Atlantean Kodex, Dark Forest, old Manowar, Bathory, Dissection and Slough Feg!
Chariots are being prepared for war. Women and children are fearful. Beware, LUNAR SHADOW is here!
