The Skinny: Set for release on April 20th, Memories Of A Dead Man’s sophomore album V.I.T.R.I.O.L. sees this France-based post-rock/hardcore band returning with yet another album that is simultaneously captivating and ambitious. As with their debut EP Maze, this new disc ebbs and flows like a moving tide, first hypnotizing you then sucking you into it’s depths. Offer your undivided aural attention or there’s a good chance you’ll miss some of the wonderful little nuances hidden within each song.

Combine similar music and moods carefully crafted by post-metal acts such as The Ocean, Cult of Luna and Rosetta and hardcore heroes like Envy and you have the foundation for V.I.T.R.I.O.L.. Add a dash of dreamy and ethereal elements as well as a healthy dose of experimentation and uniqueness and you have a good idea of just what to expect with this record. Don’t believe what you read? Good, you’ve been taught well. instead believe what you hear in this exclusive world premiere of the new album. Hit Play!
