The southern Wisconsin quintet, LUNA MORTIS, made a huge impact on the metal scene with their epic, piercing, Century Media debut full-length offering, The Absence, which runs the gamut; encompassing everything from captivating melodies, technical precision and engaging hooks. Further validating their success, the band was honored to be featured on \\"The Daily Buzz\\" show on Madison’s CW Network. The piece features some interview and performance footage, so click on the link below to check it out.
Mary Zimmer (vocals) further states: “Recently, we were approached by Madison\\'s CW network for an interview so we were more than happy to oblige, and were surprised at the request. It\\'s not too often that you see metal bands on regular television, let alone a morning show like ‘The Daily Buzz’ here in Madison. The CW crew came out and interviewed us at The Annex, one of our favorite venues here in Madison, and we also did a live performance of ‘Forever More,’ which they cut into the story as well. It was a great experience and we are so glad to have such huge hometown support.
“Speaking of videos, in the last couple of weeks, we\\'ve also completed filming our first music video for our album The Absence. It will be of the song ‘Forever More’ and it was shot in Monroe, Wisconsin - a really small town where some of the guys grew up - in a place called the Monroe Arts Center. It used to be a church, but has been converted for concerts and performances, but the video is going to look very epic as the building was awesome. It was shot by acclaimed director David Brodsky, who has done TONS of other metal videos (Bleeding Through, The Agonist, Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, etc.) and has won several awards from MTV2s Headbanger\\'s Ball. He and his production assistant, Allie, were great to work with and we think the video is going to look incredible. When the video is up, we will be stoked for you all to see it and we can\\'t wait to hear what you think!”
LUNA MORTIS prides itself on blurring genre lines to arrive at something both beautiful and aggressive. Their ability to capture a progressive and dark sound should appeal to metalheads regardless of their sonic inclinations. Zimmer’s approach is unlike her contemporaries with an unlimited range and dynamic scope that will quickly help set the group apart from the pack. The album, produced by the acclaimed Jason Suecof (All That Remains, Trivium), is now available worldwide and be sure to visit [http://www.myspace.com/lunamortismusic](http://www.myspace.com/lunamortismusic) now to stream the captivating new track “Forever More.”
