"'Memento Mori' is a concept album about a downward spiral in depression and death, set out to stretch the boundaries of traditional melodic/gothic metal with its dark and brooding atmosphere.

Lunar Path Reveals "Memento Mori" Details

Lunar Path's debut album "Memento Mori" is due to be released on the 1st of February 2012 through Inverse Records.

"Memento Mori" is a concept album about a downward spiral in depression and death, set out to stretch the boundaries of traditional melodic/gothic metal with its dark and brooding atmosphere. This nightmarish journey through hell and back was inspired by arson, mishaps, bad luck as well as the lineup changes the band endured during these past years. These events shaped the band and transformed the album into a dynamic ensemble with warm and cold flashes of traditional metal and darkly progressive stunts, promising to raise eyebrows and make hearts race.

The album guest roster is filled with acclaimed musicians and vocalists such as Attila Csihar (Mayhem, Aborym), Tuomas Saukkonen (Before The Dawn, Black Sun Aeon), JP Leppäluoto (Charon, Northern Kings, Harmaja) and Antti Leskinen (Fatal Sound Project, Chained, Murena). The band commented on its history:

"Lunar Path was formed in late 2006, releasing a few demos and EPs, before starting to work on 'Memento Mori.' The band became victims of arson in early 2010 when a deranged person intentionally set fire to the ground floor of their practice flat while the band was playing, trapping them upstairs. During the attempt to reach safety guitarist and album producer Jonas Eriksson sustained severe damage to his foot, but luckily nobody else was hurt in the fire. The band didn't spend their time crying over spilled milk as a few months later the band toured Scandinavia supporting Deathstars and ex-Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di'Anno; with Eriksson playing the entire tour sitting down with his broken leg in a cast.

"Lead vocalist Janica Lönn has also been working with Black Sun Aeon lately, most notably singing on their newly released and highly acclaimed 'Blacklight Deliverance' album. Aside from Lunar Path's tour plans she will also perform live with BSA at Summer Breeze 2012 and other European festivals next year." More...
