Maintain Records have posted the following update on their myspace page:
"With 23rd November, the release date of the new THIRDMOON album "Dimorphic Cynosure" approaches. After more than 4 years of a not always voluntary rest, there is now a first insight available into the new masterpiece. From now on, you can get a first visual and acoustic impression of the new album through the new eCard. It also includes information on the DigiPak and the accompanying text of the album, while being accompanied with excerpts from the songs "Character Of Scars" and "Crawl Of Subspecies"."
The release date for the new Thirdmoon album, "Dimorphic Cynosure," has been set for November 23. Listeners can expect the most aggressive but also most melancholic Thirdmoon album, as well as lyrically and musically the most emotional release from mastermind Wolfgang Rothbauer.
This concept album will be available as a JewelCase with a running time of 62 minutes at the retail market, and there will also be a limited edition coming as a DigiPak. Beside an exclusive artwork, the DigiPak version will also have 4 bonus tracks. Among them are "Bloodfield", an exclusive Soundtrack for the "elite-marsball" Online-Game (www.marsball.fr), and three acoustic instrumentals, which originated spontaneously during the recording of the album and are very important to the band since the emotional condition during the time of recording was set to music quite sentimentally, honestly and spontaneously.
The DigiPak will only be available via Twilight-Vertrieb and selected mailorders, and through the band itself and the Maintain Record Store.
