LUNA REIGN - OUR GLORIOUS DEAD - ALBUM REVIEW - Last July 13th I was introduced to the Uk's 3rd Luna Reign album entitled " Our Glorious Dead " through the Gothic World Records record label. In Luna Reign impeccable sounds move between the boundaries of rock and post-punk into a musical composition style which clearly shows that more U.S. European influences in their conceptual roots, readers of music lovers, Lux Atenea Webzine 10, will enjoy extraordinary issues where passionate melody almost reaches the level of interpretive virtuosity on the electric guitar, offering a seamless musical obscura definition with ominously gothic instrumental textures. A visually distinctive musical style, defined by a sacral cover image, created in absolute harmony with the audio content of this magnificent album. Therefore, from the outset with the extraordinary song "Death Euphoria" you will be impressed with the quality of interpretation treasured by this musical genius, whose talents continue to stimulate our nineteenth-centuary spirit of romanticism in the wonderful song "Mirror Mirror", whose spooky passages offer us that enhanced dark background with expertise in instrumental structure. Optimal melodic developments are continued into the powerful song "Sinners" that is exquisitely refined with this clever recreation and delicate sound processing, to stimulate our senses to a higher level of sensitivity and pleasant, after the transition stage musical set to "Home, Sweet Home" , lead us to enjoy the fullest song "Black Light". In the song " So Cold ", musical intensity and melodic charm will melt in the fire magnum of artistic creation until, in "Beyond The Waves", the fiery feeds on the most sensitive inspired by a melodic dynamism where sound leadership guitar remains the conceptual thread that binds us to the more notable rendition of "Last Breath", one of the musical gems of this album. After hearing repeated the previous item, then click "Fade" we will dive into another ethereal dimension where textures again highlight the high quality of this song, ending in the last issue of this album "Until The End" as end of a glowing sunset sonic experimentation as a structural base composition. "Our Glorious Dead", is a conceptual evolution of the post-punk and eclectic fusion of European and American musical styles within this scene. Enjoy it! and order it now!
DEVOLUTION REVIEW OF THE LUNA REIGN ALBUM - ELECTRIC GHOST. 'Electric Ghost' is one of the most musical and melodic goth albums of recent times. From opening number 'Electric Ghost' (aptly named - technology plays it part in the Luna Reign sound, but this is every bit as haunting as anything Bauhaus produced in their prime) to the eponymous closing track, via highlights such as 'Final Sin' (a truly mesmerizing and controlled study in wallowing grief) and 'Sophie' a furious track that sends a far more pertinent message than any amount of larynx-bruising screaming could muster, one track bleeds into the next with nary a pause for breath. 'Electric Ghost' is a Type O Negative fans new favourite album. Somehow remaining romantic and soothing yet aggresive and abrasive. Records the strength of this will surely gain an every-expanding audience. Welcome to the absurdly talented Luna Reign. - Devolution Magazine.
Buy this album http://lunareign.bandcamp.com/album/in-love-silent-screams (IN LOVE AND SILENT SCREAMS ALBUM REVIEW, BY WHEELING RAMPAGE) This album starts off with the track “Blood,” with a really old style gothic rock feeling coming from the guitar. The vocals puts you more into the sense of 80s rock. Although the drums are simplistic they still sound catchy. This track really throws you into the nostalgic feel of how rock used to sound and the keyboard and lead parts are really awesome the way they are laid out. The ambient keyboard at the end of the track prior flows nicely into the next track, “Snow Blinded.” It has a very grim but gothic rock feeling riff to start off and the synth really does add to the feel, while it accompanies the riff. This is a really chilling track the way the lyrics go and the vocals bring the words out. The guitars, around four minutes in, with the ambience was really awesome as well. “Broken” has a faster styling of the olden rock era of guitar. I enjoyed the break from the guitar into keyboard about the three minutes. With the bass kick build up to bring the band back it sounded really badass. Bringing a really mellow feel is the next track, “Luna Eclipse II,” with the chilled out guitar and very soft spoken vocals. When the guitar and keyboard come in it gets really epic. This was a very well done gothic rock ballad and the vocals really get the spotlight as they are very perfect and amazing for the style. The organ affect on the keys of “Save You?” are really tone setting, as well as the ambience. The strumming of the guitar makes it a really laid back track. This track is really mellow but for the genre that’s definitely fine. It is a very trance inducing track and you can’t help but feel as if you’re going to get bit by a vampire and be okay with it. The mix between the low ambience and higher keys made for a chilling sound in the next track, “In Love And Silent Screams,” and the guitar chugs sound good. Having two toned vocals was really dark sounding as well and makes it more enjoyable. Mellow guitar and vocals start off “As The World Falls,” but builds up as the drums comes in and it gets a little which sounds nice. It is a really catchy track the way it flows, with relaxing breaks and a heavy chorus. “The Key” brings really groovy rock feeling guitar riffs and the vocals are great on this track as per usual. They felt a little more chilling, but it may have just been how the keyboard flowed with it though.The next track, “Kiss The Sky,” is very dark feeling the way the ambient keyboard and guitar flowed. Some of the riffs were a little grim feeling which is awesome. It is mostly a mellow track but it still has a very chilling feel to it, especially the ending of it with the ambience and whispers. “Fallen Empire” was probably the best way to end the album, with its short and heavy feel. The guitars are catchy and the vocals are as well the way they flowed, although it is a short track it is a great track.This album is really well done and the fact that this is a one man band makes it even more of a masterpiece. I don’t think I have ever listened to anything quite like it. The whole album feels like it belongs in movies like Labrynth, Never Ending Story, and even Donnie Darko in some scenes. The ambient keyboard and guitars are very old school gothic rock and the vocals are really great with the soft spoken but chilling coherent singing. I recommend picking this up as it isn’t too heavy and is something everyone will be able to enjoy, especially at a pay what you want price. 8.5 out of 10 http://wheelingrampage.blogspot.ca/2012/11/review-of-in-love-silent-screams-by.html
