This album is brimming with substance. Each song is a distinct chapter in a tight-knit narrative. Neither Moon Nor Star is a beautiful exercise in active listening and will no doubt challenge any listener's perception of what chiptune is (and can be).
Favorite track: Son of Nothing (Ceyx).
Heosphoros is back with more sublime chiptune prog metal, his first solo EP in 10 years. Writing for the NES's 2A03 and VRC6 sound chips, he commands a strong melodic style that often channels a darkness and tension not always associated with chiptune. With distinctive artwork from Keff and a use of atmospheric and authentic samples, this is an otherworldly chip metal odyssey to get lost in. Join the quest of a man looking to black out the skies and kill the concept of 'dawn'. Download the release to get the bonus track, Palace of Destruction.

It is incredibly clear that Josh has a deep appreciation of reality and all its inhabitants. There has always been grace and positivity in his music and I am profoundly happy this is released. What a treasure. vaporstack
