LUNA “On The Other Side Of Life” /CD/



The second full-length album by Ukrainian Symphonic Funeral Doom/Death Metal one-man band.
The new work by the Ukrainian project continues the ideas of the debut album. However, this time, the album is divided into two epic tracks.
Unleashing over 50 minutes of crushing Symphonic/Atmospheric Funeral Doom Metal, “On the Other Side of Life” delivers waves of brilliant atmospheric passages filled with crushing Doom riffs and proficient tempo changes.
The first part of this release comes under the 21-minute long “Grey Heaven Fall”, a highly atmospheric piece that nicely sets the mood. While there are not vocals in this release, the heavy riffs and powerful ambiance makes you forget about this and allow you to enjoy the release without even noticing.
If you thought the first song was long, the album title track “On the Other Side of Life” is even more grandiose with its 33-minutes of weeping guitars and punishingly demoralizing Doom! This song is comparable to the works of Mourning Beloveth and Mournful Congregation, but with an additional splash of Atmospheric elements. As the song progresses, the atmosphere continues to get bleaker and darker, making it perfect for this type of release.
Instrumental Doom/Death Metal by Luna, melodic, with a touch of Symphonic and Epic, perfectly serves as a soundtrack to the fantasies giving birth to new mythical worlds in the gloom of the night. This two-song monumental release hits all the right notes in terms of the genre and establishes the band as one of the premiere Atmospheric/Symphonic Funeral Doom Metal acts. If you like Shape Of Despair, Mourning Beloveth, etc., but could do without the vocals, Luna is a great alternative!
