Biography

Dark Lunacy is an Italian metal band whose genre shifts between symphonic, progressive, gothic and melodic death metal. In an interview Enomy described it as “Dramatic Death Metal”. Their themes are mainly gloomy subjects such as mourning, loss, psychology of warfare etc.
In 2010 the band had a radical change in the line-up, with only Mike staying from the previous one.

The lineup is as follows:
Mike Lunacy - Vocals
Daniele Galassi - Lead and Rythm guitar
Jacopo Rossi - Bass
Alessandro Vagnoni - Drums

The band was founded in 1997 by singer Mike Lunacy and guitarist Enomys. It was not until 1999, with the addition of drummer Baijkal and bassist Harpad, that the band became complete and released their first official album, Devoid, the following year. While earlier releases were on Metal Blade, the band is currently associated with the label Self Distribuzione. In 2001 bassist Harpad left and was replaced by Imer. In 2003 the band released their second official album, Forget Me Not. In June 2006 Baijkal and Imer left the band for personal reasons, but not before the release of The Diarist. Mary Ann and Mathias entered the band in August 2006; in the Autumn of 2007, Baijkal and Imer returned and Mathias left the band, and Mary Ann went from playing bass to second guitar. In 2009, Enomys left the band due to personal reasons. Simon joined the band officially soon after at the guitar to replace him.

    First thoughts of The Day of Victory after one listen. Dark Lunacy are embracing the Red Soviet theme more than ever before. And it sounds like a very natural component of their music. Amazing cover art. The majestic choir arrangements are an essential part of the Russian/Soviet feel. I agree that they really need to bring the violin back.

    Their music is great, but the lyrics are atrocious.

    I appreciate they recorded a proper album this time around. I feel like it's ok, but they really need to bring back the violin.

    Новый альбом просто ужасен. Группа должна была прекратить своё существование после великолепного Diarist The new album is just awful. The group had to cease to exist after a great Diarist

    It's pretty good on first listen. The Mystic Rail, however, really kicks serious fucking ass.

    ILLST, сколько людей, столько и мнений. Моё мнение: последний альбом - шедевр, второй по шедевральности после диариста, вот.
