Mono ‘Rays Of Darkness’ & ‘The Last Dawn’ Video Teaser (Exclusive)



Japanese post progressive metal band Mono will be releasing not one but two albums this fall and we’re here to bring you an exclusive video teaser that was animated by legendary Japanese animator Koji Morimoto (Akira, The Animatrix)! The video shows a man listening to Mono and his flesh peels away with a strong wind gale, leaving only a skeleton to enjoy the music.

The latest animation piece is a music video for a world known Instrumental Rock band called MONO in 2014. The production was requested and started by Morimoto himself when he listened to the song “Recoil, Ignite” for the first time. The song at the time did not have a title, but the final piece unpredictably matched with the inspiration Morimoto had and the title which was given later. Even though the piece is only 15 seconds long, it portraits its dark hellish world perfectly. These kind of expressions he brings, almost like a revolution of the original idea is what makes Morimoto unique and world-famous.

The short teaser promotes both Rays Of Darkness and The Last Dawn, which will be the band’s followup to 2012’s For My Parents. The albums come out Oct. 24th in Europe, 27th in the UK, 28th in US, and November 5th in Japan. You can pre-order the album via Temporary Residence for US and through Pelagic for EU/UK.

I only found about out these guys recently and they’ve been blowing my mind since. It’s truly fantastic music that is emotional, dynamic, and feels like an epic journey. It’s music that requires patience and attention and I couldn’t recommend it any more.
