Moonlight Sorcery to release "Horned Lord of the Thorned Castle"

It’s about time to reveal all the faces of the night! Moonlight Sorcery will release their first full-length album entitled 'Horned Lord of the Thorned Castle' on September 29th. Expect nothing but an ice cold blizzard that will conquer your castles, crumble your towers and withhold the daylight forever! 'Horned Lord of the Thorned Castle' is a perfect combination of the atmosphere from 'Piercing Through the Frozen Eternity' and the rawness of 'Nightwind: The Conqueror from the Stars', the band’s two EPs released in 2022 and early 2023. Moonlight Sorcery wants to raise the bar, and these new nine songs have even more melodic hooks and shreddy guitar work. Frozen synth walls further develop the Finnish trio’s unique sound, a vibe you cannot find in any other black metal record. 'Horned Lord of the Thorned Castle' follows a specific narrative, and its nine compositions tell a single tale, with every song starting where the previous one left off. «Basically, our debut could be a single 44-minute song», the band said. Yet, the pleasure of learning such a tale is yours. Prepare, wanderer, to meet the 'Horned Lord of the Thorned Castle'! Mixed and mastered at Unisound by legendary producer and musician Dan Swanö. Avantgarde Music will release 'Horned Lord of the Thorned Castle' on CD, LP, and digital platforms on September 29, 2023. Find preorders at Bandcamp HERE.
