Lunar Mantra: Genesis
Alchemical/ambient black metal rituals from Glasgow
“Forged under fire and water, Lunar Mantra is a visionary guide and aural journal of the arcane steps we take, undergoing metamorphosis of divine evolution.”
Bold and some might even say pretentious words there from this Glasgow four-piece, but they reveal, if nothing else, the sort of lofty ambitions and vision sometimes lacking in British bands. Pleasing to report is that the otherworldliness and ambition of the band’s communications are echoed in the songs on this, their debut recording.
