The debut album "Shadow Of The Moon" (1997) was not only Blackmore's conscious radical break with his former life as a celebrated rock star with Deep Purple and Rainbow, but at the same time groundbreaking and symptomatic of his artistic ideals: music with a focus on acoustic instrumentation, influenced by the songs of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, but in its timelessness ideally fits into the here and now.

"Shadow Of The Moon" was and still is a milestone. The album encompasses everything that Blackmore's Night still stand for today: beautiful melodies and warm atmospheres that reach the soul, as well as joyful songs to dance and celebrate.

On March 10, 2023, the 25th Anniversary Edition of "Shadow Of The Moon" will be released worldwide. The album has been converted from the original recording to HD audio and completely remixed. The iconic original artwork has been refreshed and reworked as part of the anniversary.

Two previously unreleased acoustic tracks will be part of this reissue: "Spirit Of The Sea" and "Shadow Of The Moon", both recorded in a home recording session by Candice and Ritchie in 2022. All physical first editions will also include an exclusive "Shadow Of The Moon" documentary on DVD as a bonus.
