Special Feature
Bella Lune
This band's formation started as early as 2006 when Fuchsia and Kal3id met and started putting their talents and ideas together. As these ideas started to take shape we were presented with their debut album Abstracted Visions. Since then the band has continued to grow and morph into what we know them as today. With a lot of great talent and ideas each new album takes on a slightly different style while still maintaining their foundationals sound. This latest work has a definite infusion of electronica while the vocals take more of a background or distant feel, creating a dreamy ethereal mood throughout the album. We're presented with a dozen of these captivating tracks and we have a few great new classics that are already pleasing our listeners on our radio show. This release is also a charity release supporting a good cause, so fans can go buy the new album from the band's bandcamp page and support a good cause at the same time!

This band has been going strong since 2003. They started working and released their first album in 2004 and since then have released a total of five studio albums. They have created a stunning style of melodic synthpop that is reminiscent of the height of the 80's new wave scene but definitely their own unique and fun style. However, they still definitely pay tribute to all of their influences with a number of covers which is what first got them their start. Their most recent album is even a track-by-track cover of the entire Depeche Mode album A Broken Frame. However, this is not the album we've reviewed here, but rather their 2014 re-issue of Inhale. This was ourhttp://youtu.be/l-3JxPWXQz8 first introduction to this excellent project and from our first listen they became instant favorites. It's with the introduction of this album that we present this duo as our special feature here on Gothic Paradise, be sure to check them out.
