The time has come! After four long years, the pioneers of Czech epic doom/death metal RETURN TO INNOCENCE resurfaced with their new album “The Ring of Moon”. Some time ago it would appear that this horde from Mladá Boleslav is definitively a thing of the past, with it’s members moving on to embellish new promising acts, such as MINORITY SOUND or CRUADALACH, and yet, now the old wolves are back to show the youngsters how to play metal, holding their banner pretty damn high in their gauntlets! If then you fancy the magical atmosphere of the 90s sound, as well as the old masterpieces of TRISTANIA, THERION or AMORPHIS, this melodic barrage of authentic death/doom with its dark and heroic vibe is exactly what you are looking for. Truly, a return to the moonlit innocence! The quartet of RETURN TO INNOCENCE from Mladá Boleslav played a significant role on the Czech metal scene at the turn of the millennium, presenting its energetic, mystic death/doom metal with melodic vocals and multiple compositions on various festival and club shows all over the Czech Republic as well as abroad, such as in Austria, Germany, Slovakia or Ukraine. The band is presided over by the charismatic vocalist and guitarist Aleš “Ax” Cipra. The new album of RETURN TO INNOCENCE entitled “The Ring of Moon” is out now, released by MetalGate Records in jewel case format. It is available for purchase via the Metalgate e-shop, as well as in selected music stores.
