Grand in scale and structure, “Far From Light” is Lunar Shadow giving us creative and elemental traditional heavy metal that moves beyond homage with twin guitar attacks and great songwriting.
No, that’s not a Muppet metal band fronted by Sweetums. That’s the best of Bavarian thrash. “DressAge” is destined to become a classic of the genre.
Sometimes you review a band based solely on the strength of their name, album title, and cover art, and if Booze Control’s The Lizard Rider doesn’t qualify, nothing can. The album is an absurd adventure, and metal fans will find something to appreciate about it.
