Dark Lunacy is an Italian melodic death metal band, often using a string quartet.


The band was founded in 1997 by singer Mike Lunacy and guitarist Enomys. It was not until 1999, with the addition of drummer Baijkal and bassist Harpad, that the band became complete and released their first official album, Devoid, the following year. While earlier releases were on Metal Blade, the band is currently associated with the label Self Distribuzione. In 2001 bassist Harpad left and was replaced by Imer. In 2003 the band released their second official album, Forget Me Not. In June 2006 Baijkal and Imer left the band for personal reasons, but not before the release of The Diarist. Mary Ann and Mathias entered the band in August 2006; in the Autumn of 2007, Baijkal and Imer returned and Mathias left the band, and Mary Ann went from playing bass to second guitar. In 2009, Enomys left the band due to personal reasons. Simon joined the band officially soon after at the guitar to replace him.

In 2010 the band had a radical change in the line-up, with Mike staying as the only original member from Dark Lunacy.

On November 13, 2010 the band released their fourth studio album Weaver Of Forgotten.
