Industrial black metal icons SAMAEL have released the mesmerizing gothic and piano driven single “Moonskin”

Taken from the band’s upcoming live album, Passage – Live, out on February 16, 2024 via Napalm Records, the song and lyric video unveil a necrophiliac ballad for dark romantic souls, blending the forces of Eros and Thanatos in an unforgettable gloomy atmosphere.

Passage – Live offers a fresh, fully live take on the highly influential and iconic 1996 album. Recorded during a sold-out concert in Krakow on the last day of the European leg of the „Passage 25th Anniversary Tour“, the album gets a makeover and adds a further new touch and elements to the album and sound.

Vorph on “Moonskin”:
“We were repeatedly asked to release this song as a standalone single around the time of the album’s release. So, a quarter of a century later, we decided to put it in the spotlight with the release of Passage – Live.”
