Lunacyst, with the name derived from the words Lunatic (Insanity) and Cyst (Skin Infection), is a four-piece metal band that have unleashed their fury in the Kingdom of Bahrain over the past decade. Thier musical style is most easily described as Progressive Death Metal with a technical groove. The member line-up and name has kept changing since the birth of the band in 1999, with various names such as Phat Nutz, Path Under Calm and The Mushroom Massacre. Their influences in metal has grown heavier and more technical since they first started out in the late 90s. Their mission as band is to create and share extreme music for metal heads around the world who share their tastes.
Lunacyst recorded their first 4 track demo in 2010 and has covered the Bahrain local gig scene thoroughly. Lunacyst were on hiatus but finally resumed and has currently finished writing material for their new full length album which is already recorded and to be out by mid 2019. The band swallows up all the negativity they are surrounded by and explicitly regurgitates it back in the form of extreme music that will torment your minds! Lunacyst is a Middle-Eastern metal colossus to look out for!
This is a tech death/thrash gem right here!
Reminds me of Revocation or Vektor but it still has its own touch.
Awesome jazzy clean passages, unique songwriting and a crystal clear production.
These guys are going in a very good direction, let's hope we will get more! Robin
This album is a classic of technical, progressive death. I enjoy it much more than many albums by the bigger name tech death bands, because it has an emotional effect that so many progressive or technical death metal albums lack. Human have never made a bad album, but on each release they have grown exponentially. This is in my number three spot for the year so far, under Algleymi and Achatius, two black metal albums. It’s that good. Reminds me of Clavicus Vile coming out of nowhere last year. Brian3737
