Moonlyght

Progressive Darkness is a fitting title for this Canadian band's 2002 debut album -- while the style runs the gamut from black to gothic to folk to traditional to progressive metal, at its core this is a dark metal band, probably best aligned with gothic metal, with both clean and harsh vocals, plenty of harmonized melodic guitar lines, but also a dark, extreme edge. They even manage to throw in an accordian interlude that works much better than one might expect. This is a pretty adventurous album, solid if not earthshattering, but certainly worthy of further investigation by fans into almost every form of metal. The band's second album, Shining was released in the spring of 2008, but they had essentially broken up by then, as founding member Sébastien Robitaille had left the band in December 2007. Four years later, the band reformed, with a third album set for 2015.
