The name doesn't ring a bell? You don't have to be ashamed, it didn't say anything me a thing either. The band started more than 6 years ago under the name of Anima. They changed that before this release, probably because there is already a death metal band called Anima. This EP debut will be followed by a full-length release of which the material is near to be completed. However, that's the future; first effort of the band is this EP.

Lunocode can be described as a female-fronted progressive/power metal band with interesting arrangements. Musically they use influences of Dream Theater, Angra and Stratovarius, just to name a few. Strange is that I can't find any information about the vocalist in the info and on their MySpace site the band only consists of 4 members. After a half an hour search I quit looking for the name of the vocalist. Whether or not she is a permanent member never became clear to me. She has not an opera-like sound, but just clean. Sometimes she sings rather high and at times a bit false and in my opinion her voice is not powerful enough. 

The songs can not impress me enough to be very enthusiastic about this EP, it is all too average and I think the band needs just more time and experience to be competitive. Nevertheless, the first step is taken and the musical skills of the musicians are good enough. If the song writing and arrangements will improve, then the band will has a bright future.
