Moonlyght biography
MOONLYGHT is a progressive metal band from Quebec, Canada that was formed in the beginning of 1995 by Sébastien "Roby" Robitaille (guitar, vocals) with three long time friends Simon Rheaume-Goulet (guitar), Vincent Gauvin (guitar), and Luc Gaulin (drums, keyboards).

In 1996, the band recorded a demo "Midwinter Melodies" and the cassette sold out in a matter of weeks and the band played some shows in the Quebec City area. For the next few years the band underwent some line-up changes bringing in Thierry "Theo" Nadeau-Cossette (keyboards), Marc-Etienne Fournier (bass), and Guillaume "Caps" Côté (drums). Luc Gaulin (who would return to the band in 2006) and Simon Rheaume-Goulet (guitar) left the band before they recorded their debut album "Progressive Darkness" that was released through Metal Disk records in May of 2002.

Shortly after their debut release Vincent Gauvin leaves and is replaced by Fred Bedrad (guitar). In this stage of the band their live sets became much tighter and dynamic and supported bands such as KATAKLYSM, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, ANONYMOUS, PARADISE LOST, and OPETH to name a few.

In 2003, Metal Observer website expressed interest in managing the band for Europe and the band signed a worldwide deal with Escapi records who re-released their debut album.

In 2006, the band recorded their second album "Shining" at Nokturn Studio with producer Sebastien Grouleau and mastered by Pter In de Betou (DIMMU BORGIR, DARK TRANQUILITY) in Sweden at Tailor Maid. Late in December Roby, the founding member of the band, left the band for many personal reasons and the band decided to call it quits after thirteen years. "Shining" was released in 2008 of 1,000 copies on Mankind's Demise Records.


MOONLYGHT is a progressive metal band featuring clean and growling vocals exploring many progressive elements with a brutal sound. Lyrics are often based on strong anti-religious beliefs, rebellion, emotional feelings about love and hate, depression, suicide, and hope. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are highly recommended.
