Who are the successors of classical composers like Mozart, Bach, Beethoven? You’ll find some of them if you listen to the themes of your favorite movies. The epic stories of Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Game of Thrones and others would be nothing without the great musical pieces which are dragging you into other worlds, luring you into parallel universes.
The Dark Side Of The Moon are taking the greatest themes of cinematography, TV shows, video games, and are transforming them into epic and powerful modern metal tracks. They take you on a musical quest from the depth of Moria up to the Iron Throne, descending into the inner core of those master pieces to search and find the beast inside. As every human has a dark side, so has every song. You will hear musical pieces you thought you already knew in a way you wouldn’t have thought possible.
Like the moon, every song has an unexplored side. This is where the band will be taking you.
It all started with a bet between Melissa and Hans. Whoever won would win a dare towards the other. Hans won and challenged Melissa do record with him a metal version of “Jenny Of Oldstones”. After hearing that one song, Napalm Records immediately signed the band to do a full album. So the band started the epic quest of transforming their and your favorite cinematic themes into powerful metal tracks! In addition the album will also have a few songs of their own and, to make this journey even more magical, they invited some of their musician friends to join them.
Expect The Dark Side Of The Moon to make interstellar waves in the metal world for eons to come … !
