Mono To Release “Requiem For Hell” In October


Mono‘s new album “Requiem For Hell” will hit stores on October 14th through Temporary Residence Ltd. (America) and Pelagic Records (Europe). The band again recorded the effort with Steve Albini (Neurosis, Chevelle) and a trailer for it can be found below. Guitarist Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto commented:

“This album is a series of songs from a flood of inspirations in 2015. After writing song after song and giving them titles, we stumbled upon Dante’s Divine Comedy and the story struck a chord with us. Divine Comedy’s story about travelling down to Hell, through to purgatory, then from Heaven to reality, turned out to be the same theme. This is when we decided to use Gustave Dóre’s illustration from Divine Comedy’s last scene as the main cover.”
