LOUNA’s Behind a Mask will appeal to fans of a blistering and passionate hard rock sound. North American fans will recognize the album’s clear handiwork— Behind a Mask was mixed by renowned producer/engineer Dan Korneff (Breaking Benjamin, The Pretty Reckless, Papa Roach, My Chemical Romance, Paramore) and mastering duties were handled by the legendary Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound, New York.
“From start to finish, LOUNA takes you on an exhilarating ride that will leave you wondering what the hell just happened. Behind a Mask might just be the dark horse of the year so far” – TheFrontRowReport.com
“My verdict is that LOUNA rocks no matter if you look at them under a Punk, a Rock or even a modern Metal magnifying lens… Addictive as hell vocal lines” – MetalKaoz.com
“The vocals are solid hard rock screams and shrieks with the music firmly in the alternative/modern metal camp. Energetic and up tempo hooks and riffs really come to life with the commercially friendly vocals” – SeaofTranquility.org
“LOUNA is about to teach Americans what Moscow metal is all about” – Music Underground
“I enjoy getting new music. It is even better when it’s really good music. Russian rockers LOUNA are unleashing a disc soon on the rest of the world, and they are going to make a mark with this one… Kicks the doors off the hinges” –100percentrock.com
