Hi there! Lunar Dusk was formed in 2009 by guitarist Aerial as a creative platform to highlight awareness, in a world where many important issues seemingly remain ignored and permanently un-addressed.
The music subsequently maintains an attitude spawned through negative views on global issues such as the state of the world, global corruption, politics, poverty and global wealth distribution, media propaganda and self agenda, corporate and personal greed, environmental abuse & associated ignorance, religion, government atrocities, exploitation of people and natural resources, military conflict and the music industry, in close collaboration with the darkling and alternative sub-cultures.
I also have a dark electro / goth / industrial side project called Lunar Crypt, also on
Lunae Eclipse Records.
::APRIL 2015 NEWS!:: Lunar Dusk is currently in the process of writing new material, with the primary focus on releasing a debut album::
Cheers for reading, time is so very precious =)

^V^ The two Encrypt videos were originally made as gig backdrop projections, designed to highlight the horrific dichotomy between human-kinds use of science and technology; the first relating to government tools of atrocity, warfare, imperialism and oppression, and the second with respect to peace, nature, a desire for understanding and exploration. Ideally they are best viewed side by side in two separate browsers ^V^
