Doom metal outfit Mosara are streaming the entirety of their album »Only The Dead Know Our Secrets« via Invisible Oranges. The album is set to be released this Friday July 22nd.

The band comments: “We’re beyond thrilled with the end result of »Only The Dead Know Our Secrets«. A couple of the songs were already finished by the time our debut self-titled album was released. When our current bassist joined Mosara, we improved upon those songs. The addition of Chris was invigorating, so it didn’t take too long for new material to emerge and start the pre-production and recording of »Only The Dead Know Our Secrets«.”

At this point in time, we feel that this recording reflects Mosara’s true sound. Doom is still the root genre but we definitely started to explore our progressive side with this material. We are also stoked to be releasing on vinyl this time around, the new material comes to life with the warmth that only vinyl can provide. There is also a hidden track that can only be heard via the vinyl release and it’s entitled »Bunny Of Doom«. The digital version of »Only The Dead Know Our Secrets« will be available on all streaming platforms and available for download on July 22nd.


Mosara is a Phoenix, Arizona based doom band that was originally formed and active during the early 2000’s. In late 2018, founding vocalist/guitarist, Tony Gallegos (Enirva/Twingiant) reformed the band. The new members included guitarist Nikos Mixas (Twingiant), bassist Kristoffer Reynolds (Beira) and drummer John Quin (Authority Zero/Secrets Of Lost Empires). Mosara’s sound is a doom foundation that melds several different genres of heavy music to include stoner metal, classic/prog metal and atmospheric sludge.

In the fall of 2020, Mosara started recording their first full-length, self-titled album. Mosara was recorded and mixed sans any recording software. The release was raw, authentic, and heartfelt. Mosara was released in May of 2021 via Transylvanian Recordings and was well received among several heavy music blogs and websites. The band’s brand of “atavistic doom” was what set Mosara apart from all the other bands in its subgenre.

In 2021, bassist Kristoffer Reynolds left Mosara and was replaced by Christopher Burns (Hex Volt/Bright Sunshine). The band immediately began writing material for their sophomore effort. Tracking commenced in March of 2022 and the new album, »Only The Dead Know Our Secrets«, is expected to be self-released in the summer. The album will be released on both vinyl and digital formats, with the vinyl having an additional secret track.
