NON: new album

Non, aka Boyd Rice releases a new album “Children Of The Black Sun” on Mute on 26th August.

“Children Of The Black Sun”, Boyd’s 12th release on Mute and the follow up to 1999’s “Receive The Flame”, is released on CD and comes packaged with the added extra of a DVD featuring a 5.1 mix of the music. The first CD release of its kind, when the DVD is played on a 5.1 DVD system, the eerie nature of the album takes new form. Be warned: don’t turn the lights off – Boyd is all around!

Perhaps the album’s inspiration in the arcane world of Gnosticism has something to do with this new mellowing – or is the unexpected precisely what we should expect from the mercurial Mr Rice? With “Children Of The Black Sun”, the man who once called for “Total War” has done the unexpected again, turning a Gnostic circle to produce a mysterious and unique piece.
