Lunar Woods – ‘Pain No More’

Independent Release
Alice In Chains, Mida, Saturn Split
Release Date
Independent Release
Alternative Rock/Post Grunge

Lunar Woods are a band which are difficult to box up as the Russian band contains elements of stoner and grunge, but also progressive metal, appealing to fans of both Mida and Saturn Split, but more importantly Alice in Chains. The band themselves are self-confessed Alice in Chains fans and this comes through in their music as well other 90’s sounds which gives ‘Pain No More’ an authentic and veracious sound.

‘Pain No More’ does also carry a Conventional rock sound, but there is an electricity powering throughout the album making sure that it never runs out of steam. This album is a whopper, at just over an hour, each song is an anthem of melody, chord and cadence with a progressive mix whilst being both technically and emotionally spot on with the guitars showing their skill and commitment to the craft. 

Building from a small intro, ‘Pain No More’ is then straight to it, no messing around; each beat and word perfectly placed to create a disjointed sound of bone and steel with ‘Break The Ice’ being a perfect example of this. Furthermore, the title track is a hidden gem, cushioned away in the middle of the album, it is like a highly polished pumice stone soothing and grating in equal measure.

Finally, ‘Pain No More’ ends on a weird, peculiar note that leaves you wanting more and that is exactly how to fully describe this album.

"leaves the listener wanting more"
