German progressive black metallers SECRETS OF THE MOON have tapped former HELLHAMMER/CELTIC FROST and current TRIPTYKON mainman Tom Gabriel Fischer and V. Santura (real name: Victor Bullok) (TRIPTYKON, OBSCURA, PESTILENCE) to mix their new album, "Seven Bells", at Woodshed Studio in Bavaria, Germany.
Commented Fischer: "Back once again at V. Santura's Woodshed Studio in the Bavarian countryside near Landshut, Germany, this time to mix the new album by SECRETS OF THE MOON, 'Seven Bells', together with V. These sessions easily rank among the most fascinating, enthralling, and constructive I have ever been a part of. The friendship with SECRETS OF THE MOON, which has begun in such a unique manner, shall hopefully persist for a very long time."
