Way more tasteful than Explosions In The Sky, far more skilled arrangers than Envy, Japanese post-whatever band Mono make remarkably heavy 11-minute suites that are less about abusing dynamics and more reveling in cinematic textures. Playing with a full 23-piece orchestra for the first time ever, don't expect them to be on some Kamen-ruins-Metallica ish. The nimble bows of Wordless Music Orchestra are sure to play the dainty, icy arrangements that make Mono's lastest mutation, Hymn To The Immortal Wind, a delicate blend of Morricone and Isis.
