Zitat von Crucial BlastMONARCH! Dead Men Tell No Tales 2xCD coming soon from Crucial Blast. We're stoked to announce that Crucial Blast will be releasing the North American version of the upcoming MONARCH! double CD set, Dead Men Tell No Tales, a colossal collection of not one, but two full length albums previously released on vinyl only by the French glacial sludge/feedback/lava rock behemoth known as MONARCH!. Hailing from the picturesque Northern Basque Country of France, MONARCH! unleash a slow motion avalanche of impossibly glacial, blackened sludge and hypnotic feedback, each song a series of epic tarpit riffage stretched out eternally over lumbering drums and the cavernous rumble of speaker cabinets. Over these yawning expanses of black void appears the demonic, throat-shredding shrieks and ghostly singing of Emilie, whose petite appearance belies one of the harshest throats in the underground Doom spectrum. Beyond heavy. MONARCH!'s mega-crawling ambient doom/drone/sludge follows in the grand tradition of fellow tarpit adventurers Melvins, Corrupted, Noothgrush, and Black Sabbath, and accompany their music with an iconoclastic design style that decorates their material with deceptively cute imagery drawing from the collective influence of Sanrio, Japanese animation, European graffiti, weirdo hardcore, and skateboard culture. This double CD set will contain both MONARCH!'s newest album Die Tonight, and the now out-of-print Speak Of The Sea LP, both released in limited vinyl editions as European imports, with additional unreleased songs exclusive to this release. The North Amercian version of Dead Men Tell No Tales will be presented in an offset-printed, 4-panel case printed by Stumptown Printers, with all new original artwork in the band's unique design style. This set will be available in stores in North America on March 13th 2007, but will be available directly through Crucial Blast on Valentines Day, and we're planning on putting together a rad mailorder-only package that will have fans of MONARCH!'s grim whimsy salivating.
artist:MONARCH title:"Die Tonight" format:LP vinyl + foldout poster. 666 hand-numbered copies. First 166 ones on white vinyl, 500 ones left on black vinyl. ref:chapter 30 details: This one is their follow up to the former LP "speak of the sea". That was an LP released on the 6-6-6 which lasted for a few months only. This brand new one "die tonight" heads the same direction, so get your copy before it's too late. Two new songs clocking at ca. 20 minutes each, starting off where the "speak of the sea" ones left. Very similar in sound and shape, sort of a continuation. An apocalyptical, suffocating and terrifying sound which emanates from their Sunno and Sovtek amps, from their impossible-tempo war drums, and from the ripping throat of the warrior queen. Nonetheless Monarch have been compared to the legends of this genre (Corrupted, Burning Witch, Sunno, etc.), and record after record, Monarch are proving these comparisons are accurate and true. Monarch deserve a place in the throne by their own values.
Da war doch mal was geplant mit den hiesigen Kapellen B.SON und Slob, wenn ich mich recht entsinne. Aber der Franzose an sich gibt dann wohl doch eher den Inselaffen den Vorzug...
Der Turbonegro-Neuauflage kann ich eigentlich nur dem überaus sympathisch geRRRolltem "ERection!" etwas abgewinnen, wohingegen die Beisteuerung zur Split mit den grauen Stechäppeln - wie zu erwarten - von vorne bis hinten zu herrschen scheint.
