Recordings finished!

Hi there,

I would like to let you know that the recording process of the new Lunatic Soul release has ended. The album will be long, almost 64 minutes. It will feature 9 tracks. It will have a title made of 5 words. It will have a colour – navy blue. And it looks like it will be my first truly solo album as for the first time I’ve decided to compose each and every note myself.

Am I pleased? I think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever created. Musically – it’s the most elaborate, diverse and coherent Lunatic Soul release; lyrically – it’s without a doubt the prequel of the black album.

Scheduled to be released in mid-October 2014, it will come with a bonus dvd containing interviews and documentaries illustrating the making of the album. I hope you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

More information to follow.
Lunatically yours,

The new Lunatic Soul album preview is here!

Mariusz Duda – the man behind Lunatic Soul – is finishing the recording process of his new album.
Here is an exclusive preview of the upcoming release:

“It will be slightly different – less oriental, more… alternative. Truth be told, it’s going to be a massive dose of trance darkness but I think it will also be much more musically varied than the previous albums. It will definitely be very emotional, because I would like the music of Lunatic Soul to be most of all the music for souls – those a bit more and those a bit less… lunatic.”

The new Lunatic Soul album is scheduled to be released in October 2014 on Kscope (worldwide) and Mystic Production (in Poland).

Lunatic Soul – new album in 2014!

Mariusz Duda is beginning to work on his Lunatic Soul’s next album. The recordings are taking place in the Serakos studio, the same one in which the latest Riverside album “Shrine of New Generation Slaves” was recorded.

I’ve been working with Magda and Robert for so many years now that we have become one organism. I can’t imagine a different place for my new sound ideas,” says Mariusz Duda. “Everything is already composed. I’ve been working on it for the last two months and, from now through the beginning of the New Year, then later, during the breaks between the Riverside concerts, I will record all the new ideas as best I can.

Lunatic Soul – official has already released three albums -“Lunatic Soul” (2008), “Lunatic Soul II” (2010), and the instrumental “Impressions” (2011).

I realize that, for some, this will be the fourth album but for others, only the third because “Impressions” was actually a supplement to the first two. Still others view the first two, the Black and White continuing interwoven story so they will consider this new one to be only… the second album :)) Now, I’ll go in a different direction…a bit less oriental and more…alternative. Actually, it seems like it will be a huge dose of trance darkness. I think it is much more versatile music than before. It’s also going to be more emotive than ever…I’ve always wanted Lunatic Soul to be, first and foremost, music for the Souls whether they be Lunatic or not.

The new Lunatic Soul – official album will be released in autumn 2014.
