Recorded in Athens, Greece, “The Moon has Fallen” delves deep into the realm of psychedelic tribal post-prog rock. It is AlithiA’s first record written entirely collectively with the inspired addition of percussionist Jeffrey Raul Ortiz Castro, who interlaces the album’s sound with Latin rhythms, celestial synthesizers, and distinctive secondary vocals.

The band embraces heavy percussive grooves, new wave Blade Runner-esque synth blasts, and striking melodic vocals with an emphatic punk attitude, resulting in one of the most unique and diverse albums to ever infect your senses. The band’s original foundations, however, remain intact with John Rousvanis’ inspiring lead vocals and mesmerizing guitar styling apparent throughout, none more so than the epic album opener “The Sun”. From the pulsating engine room of bassist Tibor Gede and drummer Mark ‘Vel’ Vella, shining on highlight track “Empress”, to the stirring keyboard soundscapes of Danny Constantino, which command the single “Diamonds”, AlithiA have emerged with a simply exceptional album.

AlithiA, meaning “truth” in Greek, was formed by singer John Rousvanis in 2004. Following the release of two experimental EP’s in “The Rising” (2009) and “A Realm O Null” (2011), AlithiA honed their sound with the ethereal debut album “To the Edge of Time” (2014). “To the Edge of Time” garnered international interest in the group, including Metal Hammer. Recently the band have embarked on a 29-date European tour with Leprous and Agent Fresco (2017); this was their fourth European tour, and 2018 saw the band tour Australia with Leprous, and The Contortionist and SikTh.

AlithiA have directly supported some of the biggest names in progressive music such as Animals As Leaders, Alcest, Dead Letter Circus, Ne Obliviscaris, The Ocean, sleepmakeswaves, Caligula’s Horse, Tides From Nebula, Mother’s Cake, Vulture Industries, and many others. The band have performed Australi's igsound, and at ProgFest a record five times.

The band have also announced a tour with avant-garde rockers Shining (NOR). Purchase tickets here.
