Today, Friday the 13th of November, brings the new album from dark lord duo LUNA13 who release God.Dis through new label, COP International (the home of Stabbing Westward, Deathline International and Suicide Queen).
LUNA13’s forceful Black/Bass/Metal style—offering elements of electronica, black metal and industrial rock—is on full display in this new album with Lack Of Lies declaring that the duo “creates frighteningly disturbing, dystopian scenarios, whereby they like to garnish their distorted industrial horror themes with swarming, voluminous sound waves, flavor them with heavily distorted acid and saw bass or even cauterize them with rough blast beat drum patterns.”
And Metal Devastation Radio adds of God.Dis, “The Occult ‘n’ Evil Black Bass representatives, who were lifted from their unconsecrated baptism in 2015, build on canned, driving rhythms that get under your skin, dominant grooves, sometimes shrill cyber punk elements and monstrous, electronically infected bass.”
LUNA13 previously gave a taste of God.Dis with the single “Cursing The Sky” and its accompanying and highly graphic music video that premiered via Outburn Magazine. See it HERE.
One of the band’s curious hallmarks is crossing over from electronica to metal without the use of any guitars, which has some hailing the act as “the bass music scene’s Slayer.” Dr. Luna, the duo’s demented musical maestro creates the voluminous sound solely with synthesizers and distortion pedals by wrapping heavy distortion around sub-bass. Frontwoman Lilith Bathory further brings the spectacle with brutal vocals and trance-inducing dance moves behind her devil horns.
Of the new album, Dr. Luna says, “God.Dis is our most complete release. We are perfecting a new dark sound and God.Dis is Black/Bass/Metal in perfection. Lyrically, Lilith upgraded our dark content to fit the dark trends of 2020.” Thematically, songs on God.Dis cover the grounds of witchcraft, nuclear war and modern conspiracy theories.
A new feature in Playboy Mexico also analyzes LUNA13’s dark material and its relation to the message of female empowerment. Read it HERE.
With a gripping aesthetic paying homage to domination and the occult and a strong live show heavy on theatrics, LUNA13 has become a favorite attraction in hallowed Los Angeles where they hail from as well as a memorable opening act for death metal, industrial and electronica projects including Possessed, Insane Clown Posse, Doyle, Skin Lab, Insomnium, Skold and Mushroomhead.
Here is what the press has additionally had to say about LUNA13:
“A music project that both shocks and entertains people”—Voyage LA
“The bass music scene may be looking at their very first real
Venom or even Slayer”–London TV
“Hollywood CA’s Satanic Vampires, LUNA13 have served as Bass Metal ambassadors, keeping the spirit of dark music alive through shockingly grotesque performances and Electronic Bass Metal song-craft. This project is brutal, dark and visually stunning.”–Sleeping Bag Studios
“Their peculiar, controversial and brutal mixture of Bass Music and Death Metal is truly original and unheard. Their courage in crossing boundaries between genres that are commonly worlds apart led them to be one of the most talked about emerging acts.”–Tuned Loud
