Moonshade Unleashes "Valley Of Dying Stars" Single With Video

 

Valley Of Dying Stars' is the fifth and final single from Moonshade's upcoming sophomore album 'As We Set the Skies Ablaze'.

Deeply inspired by the Russel-Einstein Manifesto against the weaponization of nuclear technology, it stands as both a protest anthem against the russian ocupation of Ukraine and Vladimir Putin's threats of nuclear assault, but is also a grim warning of the dire consequences of all-out war during the nuclear age. One word sums it up to perfection: 'denuclearize'.

The album 'As We Set The Skies Ablaze' will be out on July 22nd. Pre-orders are available at Moonshade's official online store at https://www.moonshadeofficial.com/store .

Drums were written and recorded by Diogo Mota (Gaerea). Female back vocals were recorded by Sandra Oliveira (Blame Zeus, Perennial Dawn).

Produced, mixed and mastered by Afonso Aguiar (Titanforged Productions).

Single and album artwork by Credo Quia Absurdum.

OUR MANIFESTO

About three months after this song was recorded, Vladimir Putin reminded the world of the fragility of the nuclear standoff.

Decades ago, some of the greatest minds in History got together to create the greatest weapon known to Man. The Manhattan Project, led by J. Robert Oppenheimer, brought forth the nuclear age with its invention of the atomic bomb.

Since the Cold War, the world saw a bloom in nuclear technology. While many major world powers gained access to these weapons, nuclear stockpiling, upgraded missile technology and the invention of the thermonuclear hydrogen bomb severely upscaled the already barely comprehensible destructive power seen in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Today, the world lives arguably more peacefully, yet under the threat of a loaded gun. Many world leaders have full autonomy to deploy these weapons, which could easily trigger a nuclear holocaust - the storm to end all storms.

'Here, then, is the problem which we present to you, stark and dreadful and inescapable: Shall we put an end to the human race; or shall mankind renounce war?' - Russel-Einstein Manifesto, 1955.

Denuclearize.

We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
