日本后摇天团MONO在2014年将带来一套全新的双专辑《Rays of Darkness》和《The Last Dawn》。
MONO的作品享有“诸神的美乐”之盛誉，他们常被认为是世界四大后摇乐队之一。这支四人纯器乐乐队于1999年在东京成立，发行过七张录音室专辑。MONO在一次与 World Music Orchestra 于纽约的合演之后被誉勇于打破界限。
乐队成立十年来，MONO的知名度和美誉度不断窜升，唱片销量和演出上座率亦复如是。要想成功将他们那活力四射的暴力美学般的现场演出演绎为一张唱片并非易事。不仅因为麦克风无法捕捉他们那技艺非凡的细节处理和令人叹为观止的音墙，他们那惊为天人的现场也被公认为无法复制。而突破性的双专辑《Rays of Darkness》和《The Last Dawn》，彼此矛盾，彼此互融，是极具创造性和概念性的全新尝试，你必须听一听。
