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.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
