Moonshade's debut album, "Sun Dethroned" (Art Gates Records, 2018).

Sun Dethroned is a conceptual work that deals with a two-sided personification of the human condition, in the form of two romantically involved main characters that simbolize the abstract concepts of “good” and “evil”: Lenore and God of Nothingness.

Throughout this piece a story is told of which the most important events are the death of Lenore (“good”), that lead God of Nothingness (“evil”) towards a spiralling descent into wrath and madness, eventually consuming all reality, including himself, finally abandoning his pitiful existence in a sea of regrets where, in essence, he mourns his lost love and mourns the innocence of his madness.

In short, Sun Dethroned functions as a parabola that highlights the need for balance while firmly stating the cost of its absence.
