Black Master Mountain - Story of the Moon (September 25, 2019)
#1
Rock and metal collaboration between Wolf singer Tatsunori Matsumoto and several former Roxcy members, the band will be releasing their first full-length sometime later this year (that's what they're aiming for). They've already been in the studio on and off the past couple months, but things seem to be picking up so I figured I'd make a news thread for it.





Update as of September 1, the cover art and title are out. The album will be called Story of the Moon and will be released September 25. Tracklisting and number of songs unknown, but I expect those details will trickle out throughout the week. I also expect an album preview fairly quickly too.

Here's the art:

The album will be sold at a cost of 2,500 yen, I believe through the band's website.

Here's at least one purchase link:

That's pretty cool. I hope they'll pull through and get it out there as soon as possible.

I think we should be grateful for the few bands there that can put out an album every other year or two, even if it probably won't be all that amazing. It does cost a lot to produce an album, and with digital streaming in mind, it makes it harder to determine the outcome of a release's success...at least from a business perspective.

Hmm, I didn't even know this project was a thing. That might be cool.

I think they're promising. I got their first single and it's a good slower paced heavy metal. If you know any Wolf, Tatsunori Matsumoto's voice still sounds really good too, so that's a big plus for the band.

Yeah they still say September. They’ll probably start releasing info on it within the next month or so. They’re having a celebratory gig with Kruberablinka as a release party of sorts around then.

Actually I missed this post of theirs a while ago, but this was the latest update on the album progress. I think everything else was recorded by this point so they can't be far off.

More album details revealed including artwork and a firm release date. Added it to the first post.

I'm liking the cover art, simple and tidy, and the wolf on the cover is no coincidence considering who their singer is. Big Grin
