Moonlight Sorcery is working relentless towards their goal: a full-length studio album. Following two acclaimed EPs released in 2022, the Finnish melodic black metal band is now completing the work on their first complete studio recording, Horned Lord of the Thorned Castle, which will see the light in September 2023.
Today we proudly present you the first taste of such opus: Burning Embrace, a 7’’ single containing a brand-new song, “In Coldest Embrace”, and Moonlight Sorcery’s own reinterpretation of Deep Purple’s classic “Burn”. Burning Embrace will be released physically on 7’’ only on June 23, 2023, via Avantgarde Music in regular black and swamp green. Hereunder you can stream the full video thanks to Black Metal Promotion.
