Ardeleiz – Moonchild (feat. Koron Korak and Arabesque Sympony) | Progressive Rock/Acoustic

Ardeleiz is back with a brand new tune, a ponified cover of Moonchild by legendary prog rock band King Crimson! A good chunk of the lyrics have been rewritten to revolve around Luna, and it makes for a good fit. Alongside Ardeleiz is Koron Korak on violin and Arabesque Sympony on vocals, and it definitely wouldn’t be complete without these two backing up this relaxing and emotional piece about the princess of the night!
