about

IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Secretum Secretorum, a split album between ANCIENT MOON and PROSTERNATUR, on CD and vinyl LP formats. Two pan-international entities, both ANCIENT MOON and PROSTERNATUR have but one recording each to their respective names - an album, with the former's arriving in 2015 and the latter's in 2016 - but Secretum Secretorum should prove to shine more blacklight on two infinitely promising, shadowy entities.

For their half, ANCIENT MOON deliver an 18-minute epic that builds slowly and ominously before exploding into a tensely buzzing hive of nightmarish black metal. Hypnotic yet free-flowing, somehow making time stand still and move in reverse, "Hekas Hekas Este Bebeloi!" imparts an absolutely spellbinding mysticism that could be a whole record unto itself, its movements and fluctuations sublte yet profound; this track simply demands repeat spins, and eternal thralldom. For their half, PROSTERNATUR render three tracks that are impossibly vast for their six-minute average length. And indeed, PROSTERNATUR are a complementary fit for ANCIENT MOON, in that this shadow-cloaked trio conjures their own brand of black metal mysticism. Viscously thick yet somehow emitting a near-cosmic sense of space, PROSTERNATUR burl forth with a constantly churning density that's expertly laced with all manner of beneath-the-surface color and shade. Their attack is doubtlessly muscular, yet similarly evokes a bewitching sensation on the right side of medieval.

Together, both ANCIENT MOON and PROSTERNATUR beckon the listener to let loose the bounds of reality and step into their Secretum Secretorum...
