MHÖNOS "Miserere Nostri" CD Digipak
Music is an obscure and ambiguous discipline, whom forms reflect in full light the mysteries of the soul. As most of the art forms, it deals with the paradox of the materialization of thoughts, feelings and beliefs. It reveals what is hidden, dives deep in the depths of mind, and bring back its ghosts to the surface for everyone to see.
And this is what Mhönos’ music is: a slow drowning, an immersion, a quest and a profession of faith. It seeks and evokes ghosts of times forgotten, horrors of a religious nature and the subsequent human fears and beliefs. A droning litany of pain from souls fallen from grace. Choirs, strings and percussions used to evoke a tenebrous mysticism and summon an impure state of trance amongst the believers.
This French congregation saw the light in 2009 and quickly created its own cult. Limited releases and stunning live performances (that should NOT be mistaken with regular “concerts”) gathered an audience of curious fanatics, and made Mhönos a spearhead of everything disturbing, audacious and true in the fields of black arts.
After having released their first effort, “Miserere Nostri”, on tape in 2014, Zanjeer Zani is proud to give it a new incarnation on cd format. A noble digisleeve with enhanced artwork limited to 500 copies to spread the Gospel of graceful filth.
In this world of pain and shit, the divine misery is our only escape. Flagellate yourself, burn incense and pray, for the Day of Revelation comes close!
