WATCH THE EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF LUNA13’S NEW VIDEO FOR “CURSING THE SKY” ONLY ON OUTBURN.COM
Unleashing a trademark blend of electronica and black metal and hailed as “the bass music scene’s Slayer,” dark lord deathtronica duo LUNA13 look to spread their devilish delights in 2020 by signing to indie label COP International that will release the theatrical act’s upcoming LP on November 13.
The band says, “GOD.DIS is our most complete release. We are a combination of black metal and bass music, and both those genres are more apparent in GOD.DIS than previous releases. 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. The video concept of “Cursing The Sky” was created by Lilith Bathory to fit the lyrics about the persecution of witches. We made this video by ourselves during quarantine and we had fun shooting it in our home in Joshua Tree, CA.”
LUNA13’s forceful style incorporates elements of electronica, black metal, and industrial rock with the incredible ability to cross over from electronica to metal without using any guitars. 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 brings the spectacle with brutal vocals and trance-inducing dance moves behind her devil horns.
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 acts including Possessed, Insane Clown Posse, Doyle, Skin Lab, Insomnium, Skold, and Mushroomhead.
