MARIANAS REST - Presents Third Single And Lyric Video From The New Album

Finnish melancholic/atmospheric/melodic doom metal masters Marianas Rest have released the third single and lyric video for "Pointless Tale", taken from their third full-length album titled Fata Morgana, which will be released this Friday (12th March) via Napalm Records (read the review over HERE). Marianas Rest are impressively showcasing their dedication to merging heavy riffs, hypnotizing soundscapes and impetuous tempo-changes into a heartfelt force once more.

As their final harbinger, the six-piece now unveils its intense, third offering, "Pointless Tale". Along with a visually palpable lyric video, this inexorable track draws the listener even deeper into the maelstrom and essence of Marianas Rest: A scream of despair shaking to the core immediately draws the listener into a dark vortex and gets the song started without making any compromises. While deep growls and doomy tunes pervade the verse, the chorus unleashes an incarnate furious beast, smashing its despair and hopelessness out to the world.

Vocalist Jaakko Mäntymaa on their third single:""Pointless Tale" tries to sum up the desperation that you sometimes feel when looking at how this world works. It is easy to break structures that someone has spent a lifetime building. And a lot of the time we build things without stopping to think what for."

There's no arguing about the fact that Fata Morgana is Marianas Rest's best album so far. If compared to the previous two albums, it's more atmospheric, the melodies are more captivating, the overall ambience is gloomier, and even if there are only a few traces of death metal left, the music feels heavier.

In other news, as a special bonus, Marianas Rest will also release a limited-edition reissue of their aforementioned second studio album, Ruins, on vinyl for the first time ever on 12 March via Napalm Records. Unleashed back in April 2019, the Finns' full-length tells the story of how a mind slowly crumbles, about introversion, putting up mental walls and eventually disappearing inside your own head. Link
