FEATURED ARTIST: MONO

To celebrate their 10th anniversary as a band – and the release of their acclaimed new album Hymn To The Immortal Wind – MONO and Temporary Residence Limted organized a once-in-a-lifetime concert in New York City. In association with the esteemed Wordless Music Series, MONO super-sized their already legendary live show with a 24-piece orchestra. Painstakingly recorded and mixed by famed producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, ISIS, Minus The Bear), Holy Ground brilliantly captures every moment of whispered calm and breathless beauty with patient clarity. Included with the album is a stunning live DVD documenting the entire 90-minute performance, featuring live orchestral versions of many of MONO’s most beloved songs. For a decade fans have clamored for a MONO album that matches the catharsis of their infamous live shows, and Holy Ground overwhelmingly delivers.

Rock Sound : "MONO have now well and truly sealed their place in the pantheon of rock history."

Ptolemaic Terrascope : "Walls of aggression and white noise rarely sound this beautiful and affecting."

Exclaim : "Essential, really"

Hymn to the Immortal Wind is just the most beautiful album. I may be acquiring the new live album as well.

Nice, we're finally getting bands that are actually famous as sponsors! However, I didn't like what I heard of Hymn very much so I will be passing on this as well.

Hymn is smooth like a babies bottom.
Lies, he only tells the truth, for he means it,
means, not anything he says, eyes unseen,
but everything is ........

So sincere, so sincere, so sincere, so sin.
