Alunah carve their own musical path merging elements of doom metal, psychedelia and classic rock, with earthy hypnotic vocal melodies. They are here to search for the spark within humanity, and revive the dying earth. They formed in 2006 in the English Midlands, and from then until now have spent their time well, constantly evolving and progressing. A wise man once said "look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better", Alunah are the musical embodiment of this. They have taken their songs of nature worship and English folklore all over Europe, and have committed them to vinyl, CD and tape cassette over 3 full length albums.
After giving their second album "White Hoarhound" a vinyl release in 2013, Austrian metal behemoths Napalm Records joined forces with Alunah in 2014 to release their third album "Awakening The Forest". This followed "Call of Avernus" (2010) and "White Hoarhound" (2012). 2015 will see the latter two being re-released with new artwork on CD via PRC Music, and "Call of Avernus" being given a first-time vinyl release via HeviSike Records.
Alunah are Sophie Day on vocals and guitar, David Day on guitar, Daniel Burchmore on bass, and Jake Mason on drums. Their desire is a simple one; to forevermore bring beautiful, heavy and original songs to their loyal audience, and captivate others...
... and captivate they do. Sharing a stage with respected artists such as Paradise Lost, Trouble, Saint Vitus, Graveyard, High on Fire, Jex Thoth, Fu Manchu, The Sword; and playing festivals such as DesertFest (Germany and England), Heavy Days in Doom Town (Denmark), Up in Smoke (Switzerland), and Hard Rock Hell (Wales), has brought Alunah to the attention of a whole generation of heavy music fans. Alunah have come from the Earth, where the dead do rest. Rising from the undergrowth. Watching over your sweet eternal sleep.

"A sure-fire sign that Alunah have the potential to exist amongst the greats" (Rock-A-Rolla Magazine)
"Signing to a major label has obviously given the four-piece clarity and this is their most mature release to date" (Terrorizer Magazine)
"Day's vocals lead the band's charge with a regal charisma, while the songwriting is refreshingly old-school" (Zero Tolerance Magazine)
