V666 This is fresh, extreme music the way I like it. Mother Moon is a fantastic hybrid drawing influences from so many genres, ending up in an dark, melodic and furious melancholic epic sound that will destroy you. Recommended. Favorite track: Deaf Our Ears.

about

Written in Fall/Winter 2016.
Recorded/Mixed/Mastered in York, PA; by Self-Titled Media

"I was completely hooked by the powerful, pulsing riff and bone-breaking bass and drum work in the opening track, “Deaf Our Ears“, and the song’s bleak but soaring melodies are intensely alluring as well. A softer, haunting guitar instrumental provides a reprieve, but the song ratchets the skull-cleaving intensity and destructiveness back into the red zone by the end.

“In Droves” is a rumbling and pile-driving crusher that explodes into bursts of violent chaos, with the vocalist turning himself inside-out in a stunning display of howling pain and delirium.

“Transmission III” provides an unnerving, spectral interlude made of electronics and samples, while “Color Me Grey” is as doomed and terrible as a mounting pile of corpses, becoming only slightly less dismal and poisonous when it kicks into a hammering groove that pounds the pulse relentlessly.

The long title track closes the EP. At the outset the lilting, almost ethereal guitar melody and compulsive rhythmic drive provide the only minutes of brightness in this very dark and devastating EP (even though the vocalist is still tearing himself apart in the background). But just past the halfway point, the intensity of the song mounts, its physical force surging by orders of magnitude, and the sludgy bass rumbles your guts as a prelude to a final volcanic eruption of turmoil and torment."

Track Name: Deaf Our Ears
We give up
Our lives
Beaten down
Defeat
Snow settles in
Isolation controls me
Deafen your ears
Become in defeat
Step into the abyss
Serene death
Blood in the water
Track Name: In Droves
Turn into malice
Pain in droves
Heart full of ice
Killing me slow
Into the dark
My reach grows
Pulling me under
Into the cold
Icy finger
Pointed spires
Into my back
You dig further
Track Name: Color Me Grey
I’ll be your ghost
I’ll be your crutch
I’ll tend to your ground
I’ll mend your heart
Mold me in your image
Sever your bond
I need no love
I need no life
Color me gray
Track Name: Bathed In False Light
Crossed the bay
And I was okay
But never felt
That way again
Bathed in adoration
Bathed in false light
Suspended moments
Wanderlust memories
Nostalgic mutter
But it’s never enough
Too late to repent
Too late to atone
Consumed in malcontent
Bathed in the false light
