Luna 13 to headline the first Para-Con (Paranormal Convention) in Plattsburgh NY

Luna 13, Bass Metal pioneers who were co-support for Christian Death, Suicide Commando and Hocico in the last few months will be headlining the first Para-Con (Paranormal Convention) in Plattsburgh NY October 22 2022.

Luna 13 didn’t just co support, they made a ruckus laying down a new genre of blackened music. It seems to be a fit as Luna 13 has a deep history with the occult and the majority of their lyrics belted out by horned frontwoman Lilith Bathory are on the dark side of things. 

This 3 day event is sponsored by *Paraflixx *These Curious Times Network *Gem Goddess Emporium

Luna 13 was recently billed by 50 Cent’s magazine as the next breed of Metal. Here is what ThisIs50’s “Hardcore Flava” had to say about Luna 13’s live performance at the Artifice in Las Vegas. 

“Luna 13 was hypnotic, trancelike, tormentingly dark, yet you couldn’t look away. It took but 45 seconds to realize I was listening to an upgrade of sound and sonically one of the most powerful sounds I have heard. Their theatrics were not campy at all and put you in fear a little. Dr Luna looks like he’s cutting through meat and Lilith Bathory’s dark beauty makes the darkness flow in a highly entertaining way. Being that ‘hip hop’ and ‘bass’ are my thing I could hear incredibly powerful ‘saw bass’ lines and heavy distorted ‘acid bass’ mixed into Black Metal in a way that works. They nail this merger through the application. Both Metalheads and Bassheads had their mouths hanging open and some people were banging their heads. Man do they put on a show! Luna 13, a new brand of Metal, gets my vote. Luna 13’s Black Bass Metal is more than likely going to pave the way for some new, much needed energy in the music scene and you have to see this live. It’s life altering. “
