LADY LUNA FULL BIO
Former (Fretted and fretless) bassist for various bands including Kadawer Dialoog, Dominoes, Black Soul Cafe, Shattered Red, and SHIROOT, never finding musical satisfaction in any of her bands, Miss Luna decided to put all of her experience in song writing, bass playing and singing and her love for Darkwave and any trippy or adult contemporary genres into one little neat package called Lunazik.
[sik] (Ockert van Coppenhagen) met Luna back in 2008 when she went for her first official audition as bassist for his black metal band. Getting the spot, they jammed for six to eight months and went their separate ways experimenting with different scenes and genres. 2010 saw the launch of ‘Die Agenda’ for him with a single ‘Propaganda’. 2011 steered ‘Die Agenda’ towards more DnB / dub step influenced tunes. In 2013 worked with Luna on some concepts and came up with ‘Pity Rains’. Connecting from the go and hearing the end result urged them to continue working on new materialﾅ[sik] is now responsible for drums, bass, synths and mastering and Luna is responsible for vocals and bass.
Mid 2013 Lady Luna was approached by South African metal oddity crew Rabbid Rabbit to be the female lead vocalist. To date Rabbid Rabbit has appeared on the Metal Assault compilation and appeared on the African Metal and Hard Rock Show hosted by SA metal icon Dean G. Smith on Dilli Gaf Radio.

OBSCURENA FLASH INTERVIEW
Obscurena: Tell us About your interests
Natalia Kat: My interests include cosplaying, drawing, horror movies, video games, and music. Gaming is a big passion of mine, I like to play everything from Devil May Cry to League of Legends to Ghost Trick. I have also trained in opera for a few years and enjoy going to metal concerts whenever I can.
Obscurena: What fascinates you in Cosplay ?
Natalia Kat: My passion for cosplay comes from mixing design with fictional characters. It’s amazing to be able to make a character you love come to life with your own hands and actually be them for a day. It’s also a great way to be creative, learn crafting skills, and make friends with similar interests to yours. You can start conversations with people and develop friendships simply by wearing a cosplay of a character that someone else happens to like or from a show or game they enjoy too. It brings nerds together.
Obscurena: And about Modelling?
Natalia Kat: My passion for modelling started in high school, after a photographer met me while I was working as a cashier and asked me to model for him. Similarly to cosplay, it is a lot of fun to create art with your body. You can produce so many emotions and different looks or personalities just with facial and body expressions, as well as hair, makeup and wardrobe. It is also a great way to make connections in the media industry and get to know more people. I love to watch our work turn into art.
