Catalog Reference: WTR006 (CD)
Release Date: October 26, 2018
Renowned for their spellbindingly powerful live shows and hypnotizing tribal flavours, Australian 6-piece progressive rock livewire AlithiA will release their highly anticipated sophomore record The Moon has Fallen worldwide on October 26th 2018 through Wild Thing Records.
Recorded in Athens, Greece, The Moon has Fallen delves deep into the realm of psychedelic tribal post-prog rock. The band embraces heavy percussive grooves, new wave Blade Runner-esque synth blasts, and striking melodic vocals with an emphatic punk attitude, resulting in one of the most unique and diverse albums to ever infect your senses. The Moon has Fallen is AlithiA’s first record written entirely collectively with the inspired addition of percussionist Jeffrey Raul Ortiz Castro interlacing the album’s sound with Latin rhythms, celestial synthesizers, and distinctive secondary vocals. The band’s original foundations, however, remain intact with John Rousvanis’ inspiring lead vocals and mesmerizing guitar styling apparent throughout, none more so than the epic album opener The Sun. From the pulsating engine room of bassist Tibor Gede and drummer Mark ‘Vel’ Vella, shining on highlight track Empress, to the stirring keyboard soundscapes of Danny Constantino, which command the single Diamonds, AlithiA have emerged with a simply exceptional album.
