As they’ve recently announced studio plans, now seems like a good time to discuss these goth metallers
Lightless Moor project born in 2005 when Ilaria Falchi wanted to create a gothic metal band following old productions of bands of that background, but with a personal and more complex reinterpretation on the melodies and riffs.
Her idea was to mix several influences, new sounds, sweet and romantic melodies and rough and extreme riffs. So music and lyrics play a dance of opposites, in which death and life, love and hate, madness and sadness are strictly embraced. So it’s highlighted by the dialogue of the two voices, Ilaria’s sensual vocalisms and Federico’s deep and aggressive growl, accompanied by an atmospheric and powerful music.
Early years are characterized by an intense live activity followed by a large number of line-up changes. 2006 gives birth to the first self-produced demo, entitled “Renewal”. The first band’s issue is welcomed by very positive and encouraging reviews from both specialists and webziners of the underground circles. In 2007 the band wins the online Metal Maniac contest and gained access to the Global Battle for Bands competition in Rome.
The great amount of success received leads the band to channel all the efforts to the realization of the first full length, “Crying My Grief to a Feeble Dawn-The Poem”. This concept album tells the story of a poetess and her poem on a count’s curse. Art, fear, love, madness, sacrifice and death are the screenplay of the Poem.
The band is included in the Alkemist Fanatix Europe’s rooster and comes to an agreement with the Italian record label Wormholedeath Records. On May 2011 the tracks of the debut album are being recorded at RealSound Studios (Parma) and later on, audio mastering takes place at the Finnvox Studios (Finland) by Mika Jussila.
