It’s about time to reveal all the faces of the night! Finnish melodic black metal trio 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. Mixed and mastered at Unisound by legendary producer and musician Dan Swanö, Moonlight Sorcery’s debut album will be released on tape, CD and gatefold LP with glued photobook via Avantgarde Music with an artwork by Linda Piekäinen.
