German progressive black metallers SECRETS OF THE MOON have announced that their albums "The Ambience Of A Dead Star" (2004) and "Antithesis" (2006) will soon be available on vinyl. Pictured below is the artwork for the forthcoming "The Ambience Of A Dead Star" LP.
SECRETS OF THE MOON is completing the songwriting process for its new album, entitled "Privilegivm". Around 80 minutes worth of music will be recorded for the effort, including the following tracks:
* Black Halo
* A Million Suns
* For They Know Not
* Queen Among Rats
* I Maldoror
* Sulphur Pulse
SECRETS OF THE MOON will also lay down a cover version of a song from "a well-known band."
SECRETS OF THE MOON last year announced the addition of guitarist K.S.A. to the group's ranks. According to the band, "His skills and his exigent nature just feel right for the band and he already contributed some extremely good ideas to what will become the new album."
SECRETS OF THE MOON parted ways with guitarist A.D. in July 2008.
A.D., who had significant input in the songwriting for the band's latest album, "Antithesis" (2006), explained his decision: "Due to my all-dominant negativity, I cannot extract a single good aspect from representing my music live on stage any more. Thus the time on the road has been horrible for me. After I hit rock bottom the last time, I decided to stop it all."
SECRETS OF THE MOON belongs to the most prestigious group of bands in the German black metal underground, with their first demo release dating back to 1995. The band was formed out of the ashes of one of the very first black metal outfits stemming from German scene, MARTYRIUM.
