Director Statement

During the years, Luna In Caelo music's has been mixed with images in several ways, concert posters, back projection in live events, and some experimental video clips, so it seemed natural to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our second record through a visual approach. This idea was "forced" due the outbreak of Corona Virus pandemic in Chile in 2020 and its subsequent lockdown at home during several months. The record title "Fear to Die" got a new and immediate meaning, expanding the concept and feelings of the music made two decades ago.
