Progressive Rock CD Reviews

Luna 13

Dark Side of the Sun

Review by Gary Hill

I really can see someone arguing with this landing in prog rock. The dark electronic vibe here, though, lands near a lot of modern prog stuff. The heavier sounds aren't that different from something like Tool. This is very gothic in nature. It's also very cool.

 

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Gods of Night

This is very trippy and rather creepy. It has sound effect like stuff with spoken echoey vocals.

Dark Side of the Sun
This comes in with a mellower kind of sound. Then it shifts out to some really hard edged spooky stuff. This is industrial and yet feels distinctly proggy in a very dark way.
Doll Face
This is really heavy and creepy. It's crazed kind of number. I like it a lot.
Skin
Freaky sounds continue here. This is pounding and super heavy. It's a screaming rocker that continues the basic musical concepts.
Venomous Love
There isn't a huge change here. This has a nice balance between mellower atmospheric stuff and heavier, more rocking music.
Snitches Get Stitches
Another hard rocking industrial styled cut, this works well.
Swarm
In a lot of ways this is much trippier. It's also very cool.
Try Death
Pounding, heavy and very dark, this might be my favorite cut here. It's just incredibly potent.
