Ninth Moon Black Streaming New Album "Chronophage"

Ninth Moon Black is a 5 piece instrumental band from the Pacific Northwest, conjuring musical influences from the realms of psychedelic, ambient, and post metal. The band has now released a new album titled "Chronophage," which is available for streaming through bandcamp or in the player below. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Aware that instrumental music is not for everyone, NMB strives to write pieces which challenge that boundary, keeping listeners involved with intricate melodic passages, emotionally driven progressions and cohesive yet uniquely structured songs.

"Writing and performing music that is very cinematic in nature, Ninth Moon Black aims to create an experience for the listener, often showing self-produced experimental films, or providing an epic soundscape for visual odysseys such as Begotten, Decasia and Man With A Movie Camera.

"Since the release of their 2008 self-titled debut, NMB has shared the stage with bands such as Middian, Melt Banana, Indian, Earth, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth, Dead Meadow and Ludicra. In 2009, they provided West Coast tour support for Wolves In The Throne Room and Minsk.

"January of 2011 saw the kickoff of a college radio campaign with Team Clermont for their follow up EP Kalyug, which debuted on the CMJ Loud Rock chart at #31. It was the only self-released album on the chart that week and continued to hold various positions for the duration of the campaign. Kalyug also debuted on the CMJ Loud Rock Select albums chart at #58, and the track 'Kalyug' charted on CMJ's Loud Rock Select Tracks chart at #87.

"NMB recently completed the recording of their third album Chronophage, with Eugene's legendary Billy Barnett of Gung Ho Studio (Yob, Cherry Poppin' Daddies). Mastering was done with Billy Anderson, who also has an extensive background working both as a musician and engineer and has shared his talents with an endless list of bands such as Neurosis, Fantomas, Melvins, Sleep and High On Fire. Their first single Mors Carnis, has been featured on the French compilation Falling Down IIV alongside fellow post/psychedelic bands such as Pelican, Across Tundras, Akhmed and Mouth Of The Architect.

"In support of the release of Chronophage, Ninth Moon Black is hitting the road this summer for Stoneburner. A list of dates can be found below."
