Mono — Requiem For Hell (October 14, 2016)

Mono — Requiem For Hell (October 14, 2016)       Mono — Requiem For Hell (October 14, 2016)  Mono — Requiem For Hell (October 14, 2016) ←••→  Kompletní materiál napsal kytarista Takaakira “Taka” Goto, který svou tvorbu osvětluje: “Album vychází ze všech inspirací, které přišly v roce 2015. Poté, co jsem skládal píseň za písní a přiřazoval jim názvy, objevil jsem Danteho Božskou komedii. Ta cesta do [neexistujícího] pekla, skrz [neexistující] očistec a pak přes [existující] nebe zpět do reality, naprosto korespondovala s vyzněním celého alba. Proto jsem se na přebal Requiem for Hell rozhodl použít původní ilustraci Gustave Dóreho.” The band reunite with Steve Albini for their ninth studio album.Formed: 1999 in Tokyo, Japan

←••→  “Music is communicating the incommunicable; that means a term like post~rock doesn’t mean much to us, as the music needs to transcend genre to be meaningful.” — Takaakira Goto, Time Out
←••→  MONO are a band driven by intangible conflicts. Their albums have found inspiration in the inescapable coexistence
of love and loss, faith and hopelessness, light and darkness. Fittingly, their new album, Requiem For Hell, incorporates all of those conflicts into the one universal inevitability in life: Birth, and death.
←••→  Requiem For Hell finds MONO returning to longtime friend and collaborator, Steve Albini. After MONO and Albini’s band, Shellac, toured Japan together last year, they realized how much they missed the (often wordless) creative dialogue they shared during the making of many of their most memorable albums — beginning with Walking Cloud and Deep Red Sky... (2004) and culminating with Hymn To Immortal Wind (2009). The rebirth of the Albini collaboration for Requiem For Hell also coincided with the birth of a close friend’s first child, whose actual in utero heartbeat serves as the foundation for the aptly named “Ely’s Heartbeat.” For MONO, it all felt so right, so inevitable.
←••→  Requiem For Hell is undeniably heavier and scarier than most of MONO’s output to this point — hear the dizzying 18~minute title track for example — but it also carries some of their most sublime moments. This dichotomy is how one band’s obsession with conflict has manifested itself into one of underground music’s simultaneously quietest and loudest catalogs.
←••→  Japanese post~rock titans MONO will release Requiem For Hell, a five~track 2xLP that will be out this fall via Temporary Residence Ltd.
←••→  The band has been steadily active since their 2001 debut Under the Pipal Tree (despite year~long hiatuses here and there), but Requiem finds the band rekindling a lot of the early magic, including the reintroduction of strings to their sound.
←••→  Albini is also on production duties with this one, as he was with on 2004’s Walking Cloud and Deep Red Sky…  and 2009’s Hymn To The Immortal Wind, making it the first time in nearly a decade that the band has worked with him. (BY CLAIRE LOBENFELD, JUL 20 2016/http://www.factmag.com/)
