Hymn To The Immortal Wind
Released: Mar 2009
Label: Temporary Residence Ltd.
For their first full-length in three years, Mono opens with the nearly 12-minute "Ashes in the Snow," one of the group's most dramatic, as well as cinematic, pieces to date. That's really saying something, considering Mono has churned out more than their fair share of neo-classical post-rock soundscapes over the course of their career. The rest of Hymn to the Immortal Wind -- six tracks, with only one failing to break the six-minute mark -- more than lives up to the promise of that first track. Epic stuff for sure.
