Merciful Nuns : Meteora VII - CD Merciful Nuns : Meteora VII - CD  Ref: 21255 MERCIFUL NUNS are one of the few bands that foster their own unique style which is actually rather cool. Seldom have I encountered such a telling and comprehensive work of art comprising graphics & cover art, stage imagery, lyrics, videos, trailers and still images of the band as that which has become representative of the MERCIFUL NUNS. “Post Goth?” - Artaud's telling response to the question how the MERCIFUL NUNS' sound could be defined. Somehow one cannot help but agree with such sentiment. What Artaud Seth, Jawa and Jón Tmoh deliver with METEORA VII is arguably an outstanding work of art, laced with Post-Goth hymns as only the MERCIFUL NUNS can offer. Setting an extraordinarily elevated standard in musical quality, never excessive but always hitting a point of focus, we find ourselves taken back to the mystical places Artaud traversed during his first musical incarnation: GARDEN OF DELIGHT and their seminal album NECROMANTEION IV – ancient Greece and the Hellenic Pantheon.

When listening to METEORA one quickly realises that the contextual lyrical plane recently occupied by Artaud has changed. Surreal and fictionalised events replace otherworldly themes as well as complex and universal questions pertaining to the origins of mankind. We move into a “Soul Room” in the KARMA INN, accompany ELEKTRA along “Concubine Street”, interpret signs & symbols from the future on the PHANTOM WALL, race through life at the SPEED OF LIGHT and lose all earthbound traction whilst exploring curious and strange entities, traverse Eleusinian grounds and observe the spawning of new galaxies until we finally reach an Acheronian place of calm and solitude in A PLACE BEYOND.

The album is available in a beautifully created, rendered in an almost pitch black 6 panel digipak featuring an integrated booklet. As with all previous MERCIFUL NUNS covers an archaic logo designed by Artaud adorns the album's front cover.
