Label: Tzadik Records
Reviewer: Mohhammed Bilal al Lahham - 2016-10-15
Highlights: Ely’s Heartbeat, The Last Scene, Stellar
Ever since their inception back in 1999, ( MONO ) never disappointed any fan or any type of music listener, because their type of music is one that cannot be bad, even if they tried.
they are highly professional, highly emotional and highly original in creating wonderful material.
and this album ( Requiem for Hell ) is no different, this album brings the feels, the emotions, the true feelings of the band members, and makes the listener weep as he/she listens.
Although to be fair, their last album ( For My Parents ) is still a stronger album, a much better composition and more emotions where invested in it, That the new album.
for there is an element of anger and frustration in this album, and It can be shown on their New videoclip for the song ( Requiem for Hell ) and in the song itself.
The album consists of 5 songs, in total of around 30 + minutes, sadly after waiting for years for the new mono album, I expected to hear more songs on the album, because it feels like it is an EP more than an album!
anyways, besides that, The album is terrific and got no weak points on it, and the post rock listeners and even progressive rock listeners would absolutly love this album and enjoy it fully.
and the songs, works as one unite and complete each other, especially the Last two songs of the album : ( Ely's Heartbeat ) and ( The Last Scene ).
These songs make two of the best MONO songs of all time, wonderful composition and fantastic emotions played on it.
This album is a must have, and I personally enjoyed Every Bit of it.
