After recording their first demo, entitled “Things Can Change”, they opened for Anathema at Razzmatazz 2 in June 2004 showing that Moonloop is a multi faceted band with growing abilities so early in their career . In late 2005, they recorded their second demo, entitled “Release from Duality”, which received a roaring response from the medias. After playing at the Sant Climent festival in 2006, Moonloop’s name started to rise up as one of the most popular bands in the Spanish extreme metal scene. The band opened for Leaves’ Eyes the same year.

The process of recording a third demo began in January 2007; its songs were based on Mother Earth and the respect for nature. That year the band participated to three festivals: Riells Death Metal Fest, Burning Hell Fest and Move Your Fucking Brain. “True Nature Revealed” received critical acclaim in both local radio, press and internet medias. From 2007 to 2010, Moonloop played many shows in their native country as a support act for bands like Cynic, Saturnus, Isole, Process of guilt, Vórtice, Vidres a la Sang, Ataraxie, Draconian, Ktulu, Persefone, Nami, Kathaarsys or Finntroll.

Between 2009 to 2010 Moonloop demoed songs that ended on the debut album. In 2011 and after a long recording period of thoughts, experimentation and musical growth, their new album was finally mixed at The Room studios by Gorka Dresbaj and mastered at Mastering Room AB (Sweden) by Goran Finnberg (Meshuggah, Opeth, Dark Tranquility).

“Deeply from the Earth” is based again on Mother Earth, as well as on personal life experiences. The band signed to Listenable records (Gojira, Textures, Immolation, Aborted, etc..), and their new album was released on May 2012 worldwide. Since the release date, the album has received very good response in Europe and The States. Moonloop reviews and interviews are featured on Terrorizer magazine (UK), Zero Tolerance magazine (UK),  Metallian magazine (France), This is Rock magazine (Spain), Legacy magazine (Germany), Rock tribune magazine (Belgium), Popular 1 (Spain), Rock Hard (Italy), Rockzone (Spain), and many other magazines & webzines.

The band played some shows in Spain presenting “Deeply from the Earth”, and did one gig at Dark Mental Festival in Denmark. Actually Moonloop are recording new material for the next album that will be released through Listenable Records sometime in 2015.
