Echoes Of A Nightmare

This is the debut album from Swedish power metal band Moonlight Agony, the band was formed back in 1999. They released a demo called “Echoes Of A Nightmare” in 2002, and teamed up with Danish agency Intromental management.

The debut album also called “Echoes Of A Nightmare” was recorded in the Winter of 2003/2004 with a new vocalist Chitral “Chity” Somapala known from his work with Avalon & Faro. The music is a mix of The Storyteller & Morifade, with a lot of orchestral parts.

The first track “Into Darkness” got all the trademarks of the band, crunching guitar riffs, speed and melodic parts. This is one of the albums that every time you listen to it, you discover something new.

Moonlight Agony has released one of the best debut albums this year, I can’t wait to hear the follow up album. To round it all up, is the excellent artwork by Matthias Norén.
