Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. The record offers a really thick atmosphere and is quite lunra rounded as well. Bandcamp Album of the Day Nov 15, go to album. Writing is also much more nuanced and subtle than before, evidenced by the wide diversity of sequences and moods, especially on tunes like Geisterwoid and Reng.
The lyrics are esoteric at times but that only amplifies its ambience. Auroraa of the songs are of ridiculous length, in fact, all the tracks clock in between 5: It revels at the opposite spectrum of black metal, comparing to what they used to write.
Lunar Aurora - Hoagascht
Luckily they left a nice discography with a bunch of memorable albums of which this one is a part. They're not bad by any measure, and often they even fit the album's dreamy feel, but if one once again compares them to Andacht and the vocals therein, it becomes apparent that although not exactly diverse, the vocals in Andacht did alternate between ominous growling not dissimilar to those in Hoagascht and high pitched shrieks.
Firstly despite being its immediate successor, Hoagascht does sound markedly different from Andacht. Suspense-building perfection overlaid with agonising screams that do not taint the beautiful melodies in the slightest.
What remains is the oddest and by many means the most intriguing position in their catalogue. Lunar Aurora have always made use of dark ambient synth work to broaden their music's atmospheric power, but in Hoagascht synth use is a particularly important part of the music.
Lunar Aurora - Hoagascht CD 2012
After such a brilliant album, it was hard not to have high expectations for Hoagaschtand I want to get out of the way my thoughts on the matter; Hoagascht does not trump Andacht in the slightest, but still presents for the listener a nocturnal world, frigid in temperature and deep in atmosphere. It begins with a nightly, organic ambiance, that could be compared to light-brown, woody textures. This album just falls short of a top tier ranking.
I'm rather evoking Bavarian band Lunar Aurora, who after six years of silence, returns with a new album called Hoagascht The riffs in the album aren't throw aways by any means. Much softer and pleasant to the ear, it retains mysterious atmosphere even for German speakers.
Its not absent by any means and the guitars are lnuar meaty but they do sometimes seem somewhat thin, though nowhere near as much as in some black metal records where one wonders if they even used a base guitar at all. Besides those interruptions of the arc of suspense and the mentioned lack of highlights there is not really much left to complain about. Lunar Aurora are back, and I'm glad to have been invited to their home.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
Another attempt to grant some depth is the usage of samples which are interwoven into the songs, trying to grant some change. The band sought not to dazzle and surprise but remind the world of Black Metal that Lunar Aurora are very much still alive and kicking, with the sinister vibe that may have taken time off from the studio but never from the hearts in the moonlit forests of Bavaria.
Hpagascht shorter songs, lots of changes and breaks in each song.

The songs remind me the most of their 'Ars Moriendi' album. The atmospheric sections are also really well done, and wonderfully placed.
Every album cover is spine tingling, every song is chilling and cold, and every lyrical weave, despite its loss in translation, has meaning not in word but in spirit.
There used to be polemics what would be the closest material to Hoagascht, stylistically, but all propositions seemed inappropriate.
