Vandor has this to say about the album...

“On a Moonlit Night without doubt feels like a highlight in our career, we took a look at everything we loved with our debut and aimed solely at writing in that vein. We are proud that we managed to cover so much musical ground on this album... Spanning from the anthem-sounding Mountains of Avagale, to the beautiful Future to Behold, the intense warmongering tale Fate of Eltoria and finishing with the almost 20-minute long saga The Sword to End All Wars.

 

This album is more Power Metal than our previous album, but we have also embraced Progressive Rock which might not come as a shock for those familiar with our music. 

As for the 15+ minutes of bonus material.. This is our way of thanking the fans, the 4 songs available on the CD shows the different musical backgrounds we as a band have. With echoes of country music in the acoustic version of Future to Behold, our love for video game music in the 8-bit version of Fate of Eltoria, and our very own encore tradition song Together We Fight"
