えげつない展開が好き。
自分にすごくフィットする時と、不快で途中で聴くのをやめる時がある。
自分の中のモヤモヤを、揺さぶってくれる。

Frederick Jones This is there finest masterpiece. They are like a Davinci or Van Gogh. With each album they make it's like a new masterpiece is shown to the world. I think there is no one band out there like Mono. Their talent clearly precedes them. Favorite track: Requiem For Hell.

jash3rs Ah, this song . . . I don't know where to begin. I love this song for its amazing build-up, but the whole journey is worth it, time and time again. Favorite track: Death In Rebirth.

about

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.
