MOONCRY is settled in Southern Germany at the Lake Constance.
The band creates a special and distinctive sound, which may be described as Dark Melodic Metal or as Symphonic Power Metal with elements of Gothic and Thrash.
Powerful heavy guitar riffs with classical orchestral keyboard sound and energetic drumming, frames the melancholic poetries of diversified and powerful male vocals. The lyrics are about hurt, anger and frustration but also about hope and desire in a very vivid way.
With its mystic and dark, epic and aggressive, melodic and emotional tunes, MOONCRY creates a truly dynamic and touching atmosphere.
In 2007 MOONCRY released their debut album “Legacy of Hope” which received a lot of positive feedback by magazines and websites. In 2010 MOONCRY produced their second long player „ Rivers of Heart“ at the Empire Studios of Rolf Munkes (Tony Martin/ex Black Sabbath). This record was again rated exceptionally well and was also followed by an interview and a sample track in the “Legacy” magazine.
In May 2011 MOONCRY played at the biggest European metal festival on Metalfest Helvetia, together with bands like Sabaton, Amorphis, Amon Amarth, Rage, Cradle of Filth, Arch Enemy, Wintersun, Thaurorod etc.
In early 2012 the heavy-magazine „Stormbringer“ nominated „Rivers of Heart“ as the best album of 2011, and MOONCRY as surprise of the year 2011.
In spring 2012 MOONCRY was tour support for the band „Serenity“ and later MOONCRY was Headliner together with the legendary band AXXIS.
In 2013 MOONCRY recorded their 3rd Album „A Mirror’s Diary“, again at the Empire Studios of Rolf Munkes. With this new disc the band managed to present not only their further musical development by sticking to the path of their previous album, but even enter an absolutely new level of Dark Melodic Metal: More powerful, more epic and more dynamic than ever before.
In July 2015 MOONCRY performed at the Metaldays festival in Slovenia, beside bands like Saxon, Fear Factory, Queensryche and Devin Townsend Project.
Once again the band played at the "Masters of Symphonic Metal" in November 2015, together with Beyond the Black and Masterplan.
