Dark days and Bright Nights- The Yin Yang Reflection #Flyah




“They say there is no light without dark, no good without evil, no male without female, no right without wrong. That nothing can exist if its direct opposite does not also exist” - Laurell K. Hamilton
No light without dark… no good without evil, no loud without quiet, no Yin without Yang.
   This interplay has a supporting role within the musical creations of LUNA RISE. Specifically when it comes to the conceptually thought out current debut album “Dark Days & Bright Nights”, whose front cover is decorated with a merging Yin Yang, consisting of moon and sun. Each dark day is followed by a brightly lit night. This is something Chris Divine – singer and leader of the band – sings about, at the same time reflecting the one ore another liminal experience he lived trough. The music of LUNA RISE could sound like having Bon Jovi, Billy Idol, Ozzy, Dave Gahan and Neil Armstrong locked in a room with instruments – during full moon of course. The band’s name containing “Luna” (lat. moon and Roman goddess) refers to a conscious game with mystique and atmosphere. The music does also come with numerous facets and influences from classic Hard Rock, Progressive Metal, Goth-/Dark Rock, up to melancholic-sensual Pop with some catchy ear worms.

Flyah really enjoyed listening to Dark Days and Bright Nights.  The music is something original and really reflects the Yin and Yang concepts.  With dark lyrics that show the pain of life and struggles of love with deep emotion, Luna Rise can bring a substance like no other.  The lyrics may show the depressing side of relationships and thought but the calming pop sounding instrumentation with gentle rhythms make this album very addicting .  This band could be compared to other great groups like ''Three doors Down'' but they are definitely no copy cat.  The guitar riffs of songs like Demons Inside you can really hear the influence of Gothic genres.  The thing I like the most about Luna Rise is the mixing and mastering of Dark Days and Bright Nights.  Things like reverberation, filtered vocals and perfect leveling make this album very smooth to listen too.  If I had to rate on a scale of 1-10 this band will be above 7.  Their video really reflects motif and mantra.  There is good times and bad but one thing I can say they show the complex structure of both sides;cause and effect.

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
