IVR Don’t judge a book by its cover? Or do? I dunno, this is probably the strangest shit I’ve ever heard on a (short single run) album...but it’s actually exciting, interesting and unique (so many layers).

Jarak I'm not sure what I expected when I first saw the album cover, but it definitely wasn't this! I am very happy to have my preconceptions shattered when it is something like this. Whatever this actually is (your guess is better than mine).

Truly avantgarde and genre-bending releases are still a somewhat rare phenomenon, especially those few who are able to retain a strong narrative and cohesion despite the confluence of various sounds and influences.

We believe that the French act "Moonworshipper" is one such act, blending together lo-fi black metal, with trip-hop, soundtrack music, doom, post-rock, and jazz. The debut EP of Moonworshippers, entitled "13 Fullmoon Nights of Loneliness" is the start of a planned conceptual trilogy which will be resolved over the coming months.

The seamless blend of genres wash over the running time of this EP, with vocals shifting between anguished screams of despair and hauntingly soulful female vocals as the musical diversity is on full display throughout allowing the story to take shape and presenting a vivid and genuine convergence of sounds. Fans and listeners of netra, Ulver, White Ward and Manes will likely find a lot of value in "13 Fullmoon Nights of Loneliness" and eagerly await the next chapter of this tale.
