Lunar Aurora - Call It Quits

German black metallers Lunar Aurora have decided to lay the band to rest after 18 years of activity and 9 full-length albums released.

Here's an official statement from the band: "It has always been clear that also Lunar Aurora will end some day. And this autumn we felt that it is time to lay the band to rest. We came to that decision for various reasons, the two following may be the most significant. On one hand our imaginations of future musical projects are difficult to reconcile with Lunar Aurora, on the other hand we feel that Lunar Aurora is out of tune with these times. We have never been people that speechify, so we won't make a big deal out of that, either.

It have been 18 great years and for that we want to say a big THANK YOU to the people who have been with us during those years. Especially the fans as well as the bands we played with or did projects with. Not to forget the magazines, distributors, concert promoters, without whom publicity would not have been possible. Our label partners Frank Stöver, Andreas Lacher and Tom Wahl we owe deep thankfulness for their energy and trust.

With deep gratefulness we think of our bandmates Sindar, Nathaniel, Profanatitas, Biil, Skoarth and Bernhard Klepper for all they did for Lunar Aurora with great dedication. Although there won't be a new Lunar Aurora album anymore, we will make sure that the long out of stock albums Of Stargates And Bloodstained Celestial Spheres, Elixir Of Sorrow and A Haudiga Fluag will be available through Cold Dimensions within the next 1-2 years. Until we meet again..."

...and so my favorite black metal band ends...again. For real this time. Kind of heartbreaking but they did leave a wealth of work behind to continue poring through. None of it sucks either, and them splitting up makes sure it stays that way. I actually take this post as good news as I have been waiting for seemingly an eternity to see "A Haudiga Fluag" get the re-release (I hope on CD, so un-kvlt of me) it deserves.

If you haven't heard this band, do them the posthumous honor of checking them out. This is one where it makes sense to work through the discography chronologically, as there is quite the progression from traditional, Nightside-Eclipse-style black metal to incredibly well-done ambient/experimental black metal.

Sad, sad news... recently i re-listen after a long time the first two albums...

"we will make sure that the long out of stock albums Of Stargates And Bloodstained Celestial Spheres, Elixir Of Sorrow and A Haudiga Fluag will be available through Cold Dimensions within the next 1-2 years"

that's the part about i'm worried about... so CD merchandise will be harder to find and buy... that's sound bad...
Destroy all dreams, illusion damned in fire... A hellish need for power, it's my dark desire...

Don't worry guys, with the way things have been going recently, the band will be back together again after a few months.

Dang, that's a bummer, but this is a fine decision on their part. I was just getting into this band; seriously, I first listened to them on August 1 of this year. They're pretty good, and best wishes to them.
