The 8th studio album of the symphonic/gothic metal outfit CORONATUS offers a few novelties: For the first time ever, the band is going to release a concept album about nature mysticism, which features 9 songs in total. The album title, "Secrets Of Nature", already implies that most lyrics will be in English; 6 of the 8 original songs are indeed with English lyrics, which will most likely please the band’s international fans. But CORONATUS were always fond of multilingualism, and particularly of the German language. That’s why you’ll also find the songs "Die See" und "Tränen Des Himmels" on the album. The album is completed by the unique cover version of the medieval traditional song "Herr Mannelig", featuring the original Swedish lyrics. All original songs were written by band founder Mats Kurth, with the exception of "Dance Of The Satyr", which was written by his 17 y/o son Max. This album is almost a family affair, since Mats' wife, Kristina Jülich, has played the violin on "Secrets Of Nature". There are also some musical changes noticeable: Most songs now feature more choral parts. The band apparently focused on a catchy sound, without sounding trivial. The fantastic orchestral arrangements by Dennis Schwachhofer are once again featured on the album. He already worked with the band on the previous album "Raben Im Herz".
