Luna Falling

Luna Falling (Metal) - Ohio

"Void" Single Review
The track begins with atmospheric tones and slowly builds before finally erupting around the one minute mark. The Hard Rock vibes churn before dipping back down with more subdued crunch for the second verse. The more modern Breaking Benjamin sound comes shining through as the track goes full speed ahead past the midway point. The bridge around the two minute mark sees more of a TrustCompany like breakdown before some aggressive vocals take the forefront. The chorus kicks back in and along with the heavier tones, help close things out on a high note.

Luna Falling enter the heavier void with their newest single.

"The Return" EP Review
The title track and opener "The Return" kicks things off with ambient tones before blasting in with a synth laden breakdown ala His Statue Falls. The melody takes over as the Alternative Rock vibes take over. There's a slight Hard Rock crunch by way of its breakdowns but the melodies are what really grabs the listener with ease. The edge that the track brings will surely get the live crowd moving and singing along. "The End" begins with a Linkin Park like build that finally erupts around the thirty five second mark. The Progressive Rock vibe steadies itself out for the first verse as it takes its time with building the foundation of its ominious tones. The chorus amps up with its intensity and emotion as it explodes with confidence and passion. The track dips down around the two minute mark and slowly builds itself back up and explodes with the bridge with even more aggression and its cinematic sound. The chorus hits back in and closes out the track in grand fashion. "From Yesterday" takes a bit to get going but once it does, it bursts at the seams with its wall of Hard Rock sound. The track is the heaviest and most hard hitting out of the bunch. Around the three minute mark brings a Vein like breakdown that mixes things up a bit. Overall, these three tracks are an incredible standard that Luna Falling sets for themselves.

Luna Falling hit a grand slam with their remarkable new EP.

-Interview- (11/16/22)
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name "Luna Falling" and is there any meaning behind it?

I grew up in a musical household with my father playing a lot of blues and some of the 80's/90's rock that was popular at the time. My sound has developed over time into what it is now by finding what worked for me when I play live and what musical styles I liked. Synth driven verses with heavy guitar choruses helped mold my style to what it is now. Luna Fallings name idea came from an Idea I had about telling a story from the perspective of Luna.Luna is an AI that has become self aware and is navigating all the new feelings that they are learning and ultimately causing her downward spiral, which is how we get Luna Falling.

2. What do you want people to take away from your music?

The take away from my music is I want it to allow people to open up about issues they may be experiencing, it is never too late to get help. Mental health has been a huge struggle for so many lately with so many feeling as though they can't get help or talk to someone how they feel without being ridiculed. I am hoping to change that one listener at a time.

3. How would you describe your sound to the average listener?

My music can be described as melodic cinematic metal with the occasional breakdown.

4. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Bad Omens, Cold, and Lions at the Gate.

5. How has Covid affected what you do?

Covid allowed me to focus on my music and make it to where it is now.

6. What’s your take on the current state of Metal?

Metal is growing and evolving with bands like Bad Omens and Dayseeker gaining traction and more listeners, they are appealing to listeners on a new larger scale.

7. What's the current music scene like there in Ohio?

To be honest the Columbus music scene is huge and full of talent with so many helpful bands that are willing to help out other artists. That being said there is also the darkside of the local scene that has local artists competing against each other and trying to blacklist groups that they feel are out producing them. My goal for Luna Falling is to not be a local band starting out. With the extra help of Cristian Machado of Lions at the Gate, previously ill Nino, I have been able to reach a much larger audience right out of the gate.

8. What’s your take on the royalties that streaming services pay out to artists?

I think Streaming services are great in terms of reaching people. The Royalties they pay artists are complete trash. Unless you're getting promotion from insiders and have millions of streamers listening then there is no way to make any type of money on streaming.

9. What’s next for Luna Falling?

World domination. The debut album is finished in terms of tracking all the instruments, I am working on tracking the rest of the vocals now. Also I will be auditioning soon for the rest of the touring live members. Little secret I will let you in on is that Luna Falling is just me with the help of my producers.

10. Any shoutouts?

I'd like to shoutout Cristian Machado from Lions at the Gate for helping get my feet wet in the industry.
I'd like to thank Unnus Latif at Black Moon Recording studios for helping me get to where I am now, without that dude I would not even be making music.
I'd like to shoutout Josh Dykes of FivebyFive and Umbra for always helping out on my music and giving me direction and for singing my harmonies like a mad man.
I'd also like to thank Will Carlson for producing a nobody like me and helping me mold my sound with "The End"
