German black/gothic rock/metal act Secrets of the Moon have called it quits. The band posted the following message on their social media page today, February 28th:
“– the darkness at the end of the tunnel –
‘From the moment we built the four walls of the ‘black house’ with our bare hands skyward we knew this would be not only our final record but the epitaph at our final resting place. Thanks for walking this long winding idiosyncratic path with us over all the years, it has been an illuminating ride. Our appearance at this years edition of Party.San Metal Open Air will make our final festival show.’
– Secrets of the Moon –”
Since their formation in 1995, the band have released seven full-length albums (with their last being 2020’s ‘Black House’), along with a series of demos, splits and EPs.
As mentioned, the band’s last festival show will take place at Party San Metal Open Air, a fest also featuring performances by Mayhem, Katatonia, Wolves in the Throne Room, Carcass, Dismember and much more.
