The Japanese post-rock outfit MONO and the German-based post-metal/atmospheric sludge outfit The Ocean announced, a couple of weeks ago, the release of a split EP titled Transcendental for a October 23rd release via Pelagic Records [CD pre-order / vinyl pre-order].

Last week we’ve had the pleasure of doing the premiere of The Ocean’s new song “The Quiet Observer” and now we will unveil the entire Transcendental EP by doing the premiere of the other half of it, the brand new song from Japanese post-rock masters MONO. “Death In Reverse” is an 11-minutes song that follows the release of last year’s double album The Last Dawn Rays of Darkness, and that serves as a trailer for the upcoming 9th Mono album, which is scheduled for an early 2016 release through Pelagic Records. Guitarist and main song writer Takaakira Goto comments:

The theme of this track is life and death and regeneration. Even when our bodies decay and decompose, our souls will prevail unchanged. Our bodies will act as seeds for the next generation, while our souls will journey together into our new eternal life. This is the story we want to explore with our next album, a portrayal of our journey through life towards death; from living out our lives proud and high, to bodies immolating, infused with precious memories… and through the vast, noisy tunnel of space, we become pure souls – a single drop of water in the fountain of life.
