LUNAR SHADOW will release Far From Light March 10 on Cruz Del Sur Music. CD and vinyl LP pre-orders are available at this location.
Far From Light delivers eight brand new songs with a playing time of over 60 minutes. Epic, melodic, thoughtful, and proudly regressive. The way we like it!
Led by guitarist Max "Savage" Birbaum, LUNAR SHADOW have worked their way to the debut LP with patience and extreme dedication. After the release of their first EP Triumphator in 2015 (nominated " Demo Of The Month" by Rock Hard Magazine), the band played a number of select live shows, including the Harder Than Steel Festival and gigs with ATLANTEAN KODEX, DARK FOREST, and ARGUS.
One year later and there are tales of strange sounds in the hills. Chariots are being prepared for war. The Women and children are fearful. LUNAR SHADOW have returned!
"For classic 'keep it true' heavy metal, Lunar Shadow nails it with Far From Light. If classic metal is your thing, you don't want to miss this one." 5/5
