Album Review: Eidolon by Lunar

After the debut album: Theogony, which was released in 2017, had gained many great reviews it quickly went on to become number 23th on Prog-Sphere’s top albums of 2017.

In the spring of 2018 however, the band suffered a dramatic loss of their guitar player: Ryan Erwin. Due to this loss, the band had been quiet for a while.

Now the other half of the band, Alex Bosson has picked up the chain again and used the thoughts of his late friend and the tragedy of his untimely dead as inspiration for the next album.

That is called: Eidolon. It’s an album based on the cycle of life and death and the stages of grief that the ones left behind feel.

For the album to be made, Alex was able to get the help from his friends and colleague- artists to ensure that the album becomes a great reminder to his late friend.

Eidolon starts off with a beautiful intro, giving its listeners the chance to be part of their grieving process. It is made in a a softer way with natural sounds influences to give the listener time to comprehend what is going on. By the end of the intro it sort of breaks open, to enter a heavier moment and that is when the second song starts.

This one opens up heavier immediately with great rock and metal influences, done amazingly good by the musician’s great guitar pieces, solo’s and fast forward drums combined with a perfect singing line. That are the brilliant main ingredients.

In the middle of the song they again give the listener a moment to breath. That is done with the use of a soothing atmosphere before breaking open again until the end of the song.

The heavier parts keep being a constant mainline throughout the entire album. Just the combination of heavy and soft music is what makes this album unique.

Therefor it is an album that can reach a huge variety of music fans. It is special in it’s own way and that again is found back in all the songs, but especially in the last one that opens up absolutely stunning guitar play.

To wrap it all up the song and with that also the album, ends with a firework worthy moment. In that matter of speaking that, if it was played live on a big festival for a huge crowd, nobody shall be able to stand still. A true pearl in the music history is what this album surely can become.

Tracklist:

  1. Orbit
  2. The Cycle Starts Again
  3. Surrender
  4. Comfort
  5. Potion
  6. Hypnotized
  7. You Long Awaited Void
