Last summer NAIL WITHIN vocalist Yishai teamed up with Maor from the avantgarde Gothic Doom act SLEEPLESS to form a new band named MOONSKIN. Maor previously also used to be part of the industrial act VULTURES and some solo dark ambient / experimental projects (SCREENING and VECTORSCOPE). They were joined by drummer Matan Shmueli (from the Death Metal act ARMILOS) and guitarist Raffi Mor (of DISTORTED). In August 2004 MOONSKIN welcomed female opera singer Byana Kliyner, who has experience in classical opera singing and touring with the opera "Carmina Burana" in Europe. Keyboard guitar player Tal Glepsky from the progressive rock band RAIN completes the line-up. Musically the band’s material is supposed to be "melodic Dark Metal, full emotionally oriented, atmospheric and sad". MOONSKIN will record sketches for a debut album later this year and afterwards negotiate with several well established European producers for the production of their debut album, to be recorded this year. The band has already contributed a track (‘Raped By The Light Of Christ’) to the AT THE GATES tribute released by Drowned Scream Records / Goi Music. For more info check out www.moonskin.net
