Started in 2012 under the command of producer, musician and songwriter Saku Moilanen, Red Moon Architect are considered one of the most valuable assets of the doom metal scene in their home Finland. After three studio albums and two years since their last studio effort to date "The Return Of The Black Butterflies", “Kuura” is an album that differs from Red Moon Architect’s catalogue. It’s a rough, unpolished and brutally honest representation of the darkest corners of mind and soul.
Sometimes you get beaten down so hard, you don’t even want to get up anymore. There are lyrics written, but they won’t ever be released because of personal attachments. Emotional charge of the vocals will surely deliver the message. This is a very special release in many ways, to be issued only on black vinyl as physical format by The Vinyl Division. A new opus of crushing and despairing funeral doom like they never did before.
Maybe one day there’ll be light again.
IMPORTANT! If you want the digital version only, it is available from April 5th on all major platforms.
Predominantly really slow funeral doom with varied vocals. The grunts are quite loud (think Russian дрём), bass is a bit too quiet. I enjoyed all songs. It's truely a harrowing experience and a showcase of what funeral doom can be if done right. Exemplary use of synths to create atmosphere. tobias_rieper
