Red Moon Architect Releasing New Album “Fall”

Originating from Finland’s gloomiest town, Kouvola, doom metal band Red Moon Architect has signed a deal with Playground Music and will release a follow-up to 2012 debut album “Concealed Silence.”

Red Moon Architect’s second album “Fall” will be released on March 6th, 2015. Watch the music video for a new song “Cradle” below, and you can also pre-order “Fall” at this location.

Red Moon Architect started in 2011 as a solo project of drummer-keyboard player Saku Moilanen, but has since evolved into a band of five members. The band’s songs are slow and heavy in a way typical to doom metal, but beautiful melodies offer solace in the bleakness and Anni Viljanen’s angelic female vocals provide a contrast to Juuso Turkki’s low grunts. In “Fall,” sorrow is beautiful, anger is strength, and the surrounding emptiness a safe haven to escape to.
