Secrets Of The Moon Checks In With Band Update

Germany's Secrets of the Moon has checked in with the following FAQ about the band's recent and upcoming activity:

"YES, we will most probably play 'Them Bones' live at the Finland shows with a special guest on vocals. Thanks for the great response to our version of this classic song. YES, 'Shepherd' is indeed a bow to 'Planet Caravan' by Black Sabbath. But we do think it's not a rip-off.

"YES, there will be more European shows coming early next year. At the moment all members of the band are busy with other projects though. YES, there will be seven songs on 'Seven Bells.' NO, 'Moonstruck' is not a Moonblood cover song."

Caos Emergente Festival Canceled

The 2010 edition of the Caos Emergente festival, which was set to take place from July 16th - 18th, has been canceled. The organizers of the festival issued the following statement about the cancellation:

"It is with great regret that for the first time we find ourselves forced to make a statement of such nature, so we thank all those who read this document, to convey this message to others as accurately as possible.

"During the last months we have worked very hard on this project, on its new configuration and logistics and in particular on the line up for the 2010 edition. This cancellation is obviously a huge frustration because of all the work invested, all the bands which were yet to be announced, everyone involved, the long hours spent, the thousands of euros hopelessly lost and, above all, the disappointment to the thousands of followers of the festival.

"At the end of 2009, after a series of meetings held with the purpose of relocating the event, BigDog Productions was approached by Guilherme Pinto, developer and producer of Cellus Eventus resident in Vila Maior, in order to arrange a meeting with local political entities and possibly hold the event in that region.

Secrets Of The Moon Announces Full-Time Guitarist

Secrets of the Moon vocalist sG has issued the following update about their live guitarist Ar becoming a full member of the band:

"After nearly 60 shows with this guy we can assure that he's the right person for this job. We always wanted the band to be complete again but we were careful. He went through a lot of highs and lows, through darkness and light with us. He succeeded and became a grand fellow. The time has come to offer him a permanent position within our circle. welcome!

"I started working on on the follow-up of 'Privilegivm' (working title: seven bells). We are going to enter the studio in summer 2010. I feel it will become a very special album for the band. Much is going to change, much is getting even deeper and disruptive. We are alive. Moreover I worked on some special releases with Stefan Belda (Prophecy Productions). People might not believe in the releases of 'Antithesis' and 'The Ambience of a dead star' on our all-beloved format any longer but it's going to happen soon. And there's even one more oddity to be released. Everything occurs at the right time..."

Secrets Of The Moon Issues Tour Recap

German black metallers Secrets of the Moon have issued the following recap of their recent tour dates alongside Moonspell:

"Friends & foes,

"After nearly 50 shows we played across this planet I am back home, feeling utterly dead in the most positive sense. the past two months have been an amazing, yet really raw experience for the band. Ups and downs, sickness, storm, no calmness. we spent the last month touring North America and Canada with Moonspell and Divine Heresy. Both bands are truly professional and cool guys. We salute them and our fantastic crew (cartel - tourmanager, phil - stagehand, ringo - busdriver and most important: the amazing jorge pina for his massive technical support!).

"Moreover we want to thank all the fans (present and future) that we met out there, that believe in what we are doing. It's been groundbreaking experience to meet people on the other side of planet earth so familiar with and dedicated to our music... an excuse to the people in kansas city and denver, whose i couldn't bring forth 100% due to the flu that hit me. Actually i don't have any memories from these shows besides for lying dead in my bunk.

"What is to come until the end of the year? nothing but creating music. a new album is already in the making, too many ideas storm our minds these days... We'll be back with another european tour in spring 2010, heading out to some countries we've never brought our sickness before. watch out!"
