--- ALBUM INFO ---

Through echoes of beautiful, gentle soft strings, and the sudden surge of sound explosions, MONO delivers a new album with supreme dynamics as a rock band. This album was produced, recorded and mixed by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago, mastered by Bob Weston, and all of the songs were written by MONO’s very own Takaakira “Taka” Goto just for this album. "Requiem For Hell" is a portrayal of MONO’s true worth, the undoubtedly original orchestration-like range and dynamics.

Steve Albini, the producer and one of the main participants of this album, was already a producer for 3 of MONO’s albums in the past, and just last year, his band Shellac shared their first Japan tour in 23 years as a co-headliner tour with MONO. After the recordings, MONO and Shellac shared the stage again in North America. The mutual trust and respect between the two is a certainty.

The album features 5 songs. Unlike the last album, which re-visited their very first sound, the band introduces strings once again, showing further dynamics and wider range and colours in sounds.

“Requiem For Hell” will be MONO’s 9th album, and scheduled to be released worldwide on October 14th through Temporary Residence (North America), Pelagic Records (UK & Europe) and Magniph/Hostess (Japan & Asia).

美しく、柔らかい繊細な弦の響きから、一転怒涛の轟音が鳴り響く、ロック・バンドとして至上のダイナミクスを獲得した最新作。今作はシカゴのエレクトリカル・オーディオにて、スティーヴ・アルビニがプロデュース/録音/ミックスを担当し、そしてマスタリングはボブ・ウェストンが手がけた。今作の作曲は全てTakaakira “Taka” Gotoが今作のために書き下ろしている。オーケストラにも迫るレンジとダイナミクスを持つ、唯一無二のロック・バンドMONOの真骨頂と言える作品となっている。

今作に全面的に参加しているスティーヴ・アルビニは、これまでMONOの作品3枚のプロデュースを手がけており、また昨年Shellacとして23年振りの来日公演をMONOとのCo-Headliner Tourとして実現させ、今作のレコーディング後もMONOとShellacでUSツアーを行うなど、お互いの深い信頼とリスペクトで結ばれている。

今作には全5曲を収録。前作は4人のメンバーによる原点回帰的な作品であったが、今作にはストリングスも参加し、そのダイナミズムと幅広いレンジ、彩りを加えている。

MONOにとって9作目となる“Requiem For Hell”は10/14にワールドワイドで発売予定。北アメリカはTemporary Residence, UK/ヨーロッパはPelagic Records,日本/AsiaはMagniph/Hostessからのリリースとなる。

DORMANT ORDEAL - We Had It Coming CD (digipak)

Second big band album from krakow playing super, powerful, dark and technical death metal inspired by morbid angel, decapitated, ulcerate, hour of penance, fleshgod apocalypse. One of the best polish plates 2016 year!!!

Surprisingly mature, thoughtful and intelligent music analogiom eluding a simple and direct skojarzeniom. Dormant ordeal does not belong to the major leagues, but qualitatively easy beats the accomplishments of many most bands. - Musicamok. PL

DARK TRANQUILLITY: POST VIDEO FOR "THE PITILESS"

Swedish melodic death metal warriors DARK TRANQUILLITY have posted a video for "THE PITILESS", a track from the bands anticipated new offering "ATOMA", due to be unleashed 11/4/2016 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.







Last year, Swedish melodic death metal warriors DARK TRANQUILLITY have announced guitarist MARTIN HENRIKSSON has quit the band after 26 years. 



DARK TRANQUILLITY unleashed "Construct", 5/27/2013 (EUROPE) and 5/28/2013 (NORTH AMERICA) via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.

FROM DARK TRANQUILLITY:
The video for "The pitiless" is now online!
Selecting the first single from an album as diverse as "Atoma" is always a hard task, but we felt that "The Pitiless" gives a good representation of the general vibe of the material. It's fast, melodic and with a sense of urgency that permeates the whole album. Enjoy!
