"Hymn To The Immortal Wind" 2x 12" LP 2009, Temporary Residence
21.00EUR • approx. 30.5USD [ temp. out of stock ] : [ pre-order ]
Naturally majestic, "Hymn..." sees Mono's trademark wall of noise crashing beautifully against the largest chamber orchestra they ever enlisted. Faithful to cinematic drama, the dynamic shifts now come more from dark-to-light instead of quiet-to-loud.

The classic album remastered and reissued on vinyl w/a bonus album of remixes. Since its original release in 2002, "One Step More..." has become the monolithic cornerstone of Mono's discography, and it sounds just as brutal and beautiful as it did then.

13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ back in stock ] : [ add to cart ]
A five-part sojourn of neoclassical grace and luminescence that defies lazy categorization. As dark as the bottom of the ocean, and nearly as otherworldly, Mono inhabit an illuminated world previously only hinted at in their most orchestral compositions.
