MARIANAS REST - New Album Out In March, Presents First Single And Video

Finland based ambassadors of melancholic and melodic doom/death metal, Marianas Rest, will release their new album titled Fata Morgana on 12th March via Napalm Records. The first single and official video, "Glow From The Edge", is out now and you can hear and watch it below. As well, their second album, Ruins, from 2019, will be re-released by Napalm Records that same day for the first time on the vinyl edition.

The Finns - featuring Jaakko Mäntymaa on vocals and Omnium Gatherum's Aapo Koivisto on keys – showcase a true virtuosity of heavy riffs, hypnotizing soundscapes and impetuous tempo-changes on their new work of art. Fata Morgana combines intense melodic death metal spiced with significant doom elements and breathes an overall melancholic theme with every note, which the first output, "Glow From The Edge", is proof of.

The upcoming eight-song epos delivers atmospheric melodies that are as endless and fascinating as the overwhelming beauty of Finnish nature, which tracks like the expressive "The Weight" or authentic "Pointless Tale" are evidence of. Topped by guest appearances of Timo Virkkala, who shares his awesome cello magic, and the bewitching backing vocals of Lindsay Matheson/Schoolcraft (Antiqva, ex-Cradle Of Filth), Marianas Rest take their creative output to the next level and make Fata Morgana a must-have for fans of bands like Insomnium and My Dying Bride.

The band comments: "Fata Morgana is a voyage into isolation. A passage to a place where minds get distorted by the cold." Link
