4 stars LUNAR GRAVE are a 4 piece Psychedelic band out of the USA. They have released at least 14 recordings and this is their 2010 debut. I have this and their 2014 EP called "Fra Traern". I've put them both on a cdr giving me 50 minutes of great music. All their recordings would be considered mini albums, EPs or singles.

"Peak Of Eternal Light" hits the ground running with repetitive guitar leads and distortion. Another guitar comes in over top sounding distant at first. They jam in a repetitive manner throughout. "Mantra III" has this heavily distorted but melodic guitar throughout. Nice.

"Land Of The Lost" is my favourite. Again distorted guitar and drums create a catchy sound but it's the guitar that solos over top that I love. So good! "Line Of Apsides" has strummed guitar and distortion until it settles before 2 minutes with two guitars playing different parts in a tasteful manner.

"Docking Procedure" starts out similar to the opener but slightly slower paced. Some distant vocals at times. Guitar comes in over top 2 minutes in. This is really good. It ends with solo guitar grinding it out until a burst of distortion ends it. Nice.

Nothing new here but I like this one a lot. I do prefer "Fra Traern" for what it's worth, especially that gorgeous cover art.
