The sun is about to set. And what an intense trip it was.

SUN

 

At this point we would like to thank all the bands we’ve been touring with during the past 14 months. Massive thanks to CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX, BEHEMOTH, TRIPTYKON and their awesome crews for giving us the opportunity to support them – to Mgła, Dødheimsgard, Thulcandra, OUR SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON US, Blaze of Perdition and Mord’A’Stigmata for all the action on-/offstage. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Thanks to Steffen Kummerer and V. Santura for being there when help was needed – to Björn Klatt, Daniel Heyn, Markus „Grimaldi“ Jabben, Rayshele Teige, Anja Delastik, Maike Smidt, Jessica Plegge, Job Bos, Boris Rupnow, Marko Skorka (Demon Art Tattoo), Antje Smidt, Nico Kolja, Martina Persch etc. for being awesome people to work and to hang out with. Thanks to all at Prophecy Productions, to Marco and Mekk at Avocado Booking and to Boss-Leif at Clandestine Music for their brilliant work – to all promoters and festivals in Europa and North America who let us come and play!

Thank you!

We stop here. It will soon be ‚Night‘ (which is also the working-title for our seventh album).
See you all again someday!

A NEW SUN AT THE END OF THE WORLD Part1


September 25th, 2015
Secrets of the Moon’s sixth album SUN to be released on December 4th 2015

The sun is both source of warming light and all-devouring fireball. Secrets of the Moon have named their sixth album after it, since it stems from the immediate experience of becoming and perishing, of ending and starting anew – not only in the musicians‘ private sphere but also within the band itself.

In the wake of existential experiences, the new line-up created the band’s boldest and most intense album to date. On SUN, Black Metal is less of a dogma but intuitively transferred into a context of universally dark music, expressing the artists‘ spiritual catharsis and growth without restrictions.

If with this album, Secrets of the Moon Moon represent one particular style in 2015, it is their very own, saturated with unwavering self-confidence and the will to live.

Available editions:

CD Digibook
Gatefold 2LP
(180g vinyl, black) with special vinyl mastering, 12-page booklet and special outer sleeve
(500 copies available)
