Moonlyght was formed in the beginning of 1995 by Sebastien Robitaille (vocals/guitars) and 3 long time friends. After a year of hard work the band entered Onyx Studio to record the first demo «Midwinter melodies» which sold out in a couple of weeks. Moonlyght then played some shows in the Quebec City area motivated by the impressive response they were getting from Quebec’s metal fans. Success was increasing but tensions inside the band was starting to burst. For the next few years Moonlyght would have to rebuild itself with fresh and motivated musicians. The band was finally completed in 2000. The only thing Moonlyght needed to break out was to finally capture their songs on a full length cd and that’s exactly what they did. The new Moonlyght line-up entered Sonum Studio in October 2001 to record their first full-length album: « Progressive Darkness ». In May 2002 after a year of hard work « Progressive Darkness » is released in Canada through Metal Disk records. The album features 7 tracks of progressive and melodic extreme metal totalizing near one hour of music. The album gets outstanding reviews : 10/10 at the Metal Observer (www.metal-observer.com) the largest metal related website in the world and 9.5/10 from the well know Canadian magazine Unrestrained. The album really seems to please heavy metal fans as well as music fans in general. In only a couple of months the first pressing of Progressive darkness is sold out. Shortly after the cd is released, guitarist Vincent Gauvin calls it a day, and leaves Moonlyght. Immediately, Fred Bedard shows up and demonstrates his interest in Moonlyght.
