DEEP IMAGINATION - The Children of the Moon

New album (Release date: 19.05.2023)

BSC Music/Prucence/Zebralution 2023
7 tracks / Total playtime 41:17

Thorsten Sudler-Mainz offers his very own version of Dark Wave with the 6th album of his solo project.  With "The Children Of The Moon", he reinvents DEEP IMAGINATION once again, but remains true to his characteristic electronic-ambient approach.

The story behind the album is that of a friendship that began in the 80s when Thorsten Sudler-Mainz and Achim von Raesfeld formed a gothic band.

When the two old friends make music together again in 2020 after more than 30 years, it rekindles an old fire. Thorsten Sudler-Mainz decides to produce an atmospheric dark wave gothic album. Achim von Raesfeld acts on the guitar and fits into the arrangements as a natural musical partner. The joint guitar playing of the two is merged again, as are the passionate vocals of Thorsten Sudler-Mainz and his partner Ann Kareen Mainz.

The dark romantic songs on "The Children Of The Moon" form a genre album of the New Dark Wave. It seems as if everything is there, but nothing is too much on this authentic work. (BSC Music/Prudence)
