fyeahmetal The gargantuan, gothic fuzziness reminds me of a less downtrodden Electric Wizard. A nice, behind-the-beat feel that's almost bouncy permeates the record. The throaty singing recalls Danzig a bit, and it flips me out that these Italians channel American and British vibes with such fluency. It's a fun record that scratches the itch for massively downtuned blues. Favorite track: Old Ben the Gator.

DOOM CHARTS JULY 2021: "Six songs drenched in thc, their dense, shamanic blues drugging and hitting us alike. Powerful riffs, 70’s echoes and heavy psychedelia manage to magnetize the listener with a slow but leaden tempo thanks to their stoner-doom echoes. Under the intoxicating mists that emerge from the most mysterious swamps, LUNAR SWAMP knows how to move perfectly in those psychotropic atmospheres. With the stealth of an alligator in its natural habitat, the Catanzaro trio immerse themselves in the legacy of the Lizard King, seizing his shamanic faculty to elevate us to a lysergic trance in which proto-doom and murky Stoner sounds take over. our senses to the rhythm of blues."
- THE SLEEPING SHAMAN: "you’ll be positively delighted with this new release. The wonderful thing about Moonshine Blues is that the experimental touches are subtle and help to keep things fresh without ever really detracting from the band’s core sound."
- OUTLAWS OF THE SUN: "Moonshine Blues is the debut album from Italian Blues/Stoner/Swamp Rockers Lunar Swamp and the band have already impressed the Stoner Rock Community with their previous releases. Lunar Swamp debut album is a seedy and entertaining ride into the more swampier side of Doom/Stoner Metal and it’s one we don’t really hear much these days and lets hope Lunar Swamp will be around for a long time to come and release high quality records such as this."
- DENPA FUZZ: "Cualquier amante de los sonidos viscosos, bluseros y psicodélicos, sin duda se sentirá atraído por ‘MOONSHINE BLUES’, un álbum ideal para las noches de luna llena junto al fuego y en el que los ecos de proto-doom y el blues pantanoso de los 70’s, tienen su particular homenaje."
- DESERT PSYCHLIST: " Lunar Swamp understand the importance of the blues but as the band demonstrated with their excellent debut "UnderMudBlues" the blues these guys play is a twisted, mutated version of the genre, a dark swampy version of the blues blended with elements of dank doom and sinister sludge. The band return this year with their second release, "Moonshine Blues" a collection of grooves that will cause your "little red rooster" to seriously "wang dang its doodle"!
- LA HABITACION235: “Moonshine Blues” es más asfixiante si cabe aún en su definición, desplegando las densidades reconocidas en la firma de unos italianos que nos devuelven de vuelta al fango, entre embestidas apasionadas, orquestadas por voces que traen susurros de Morrison como ecos provenientes del fondo de la jungla, los mismos que dejan un humo negro omnipresente, que resulta ser totalmente adictivo y devorador en las escuchas incesantes de este “Moonshine Blues”, una vez surja tu descubrimiento."
- RIFF FINDER REVIEWS: "This is the soundtrack to that party down at the swamp that you never knew you needed to throw until you heard this. If you dig heavy blues, you'll dig this and if you've heard their first album, you already know you will."
- THE HIGHLY CREATIVE BLOG: "the guys do what they are comfortable with, and they do it well, and the whole album is just so catchy. What is new here though is that some of the vocal melodies definitely remind me of The Doors. If you listened to and enjoyed UnderMudBlues, you are going to love Moonshine Blues for sure.
The album is a homogeneous flow of bootleg liquor stoner blues, I just don’t feel like selecting a favorite song because I like all of them."
- GBHBL: "It’s another excellent Lunar Swamp release."
- MANGO RAWE: "it is a stunning album, timeless like early Black Sabbath, and not outdated at all."
- BLUES TOWN MUSIC: Een indrukwekkend album. Hou de vliegenmepper maar gereed want bij beluistering van dit indrukwekkende album van Luna Swamp zullen de muggen en vliegen uit het niets tevoorschijn komen."
- METAL NA LATA: "Um álbum realmente hipnótico do início ao fim, onde inspiração não é exceção e sim regra!"
