out now: Mo'ynoq

Fans of black metal, listen to Mo'ynoq's new 2019 full-length album at the link below. They are from the United States. It looks like they have released this album independently. It also appears that the band has been only a couple of years in existence, but the album should be interesting, most of all, to the die-hard black metal fanatics that are always looking for new black metal to hear. Check out the official propaganda below.
Mo'ynoq: Dreaming in a Dead Language
Self-released; 11 January 2019
From Raleigh, North Carolina emerges Mo'ynoq, an American Black Metal outfit that brandishes feral riffs and a uniquely humid atmosphere. Influenced by the likes of Immortal, Nachtmystium, and Wolves in the Throne Room, Mo'ynoq has lured audiences across the eastern United States into their pummeling sonic labyrinth, spinning dire narratives from which listeners struggle to escape...
June 2016 bore witness to Mo'ynoq's limited-edition cassette demo, and the four-piece released their EP Bardo on 7” vinyl in February 2017 to much acclaim. The band is now poised to release their debut LP Dreaming in a Dead Language in early 2019. Featuring seven devastating tracks and haunting cover art by French artist/tattooist Perichaud Pierre, Dreaming in a Dead Language is sure to carry Mo'ynoq's message far from the southern hills they call home.
Praise for Mo’ynoq: "It’s always risky to employ genre terms for a band’s music that they may or may not agree with. Mo’ynoq are a black metal band, that much is inarguable, but their music reflects so many changes of mood and pace and incorporates so much instrumental exuberance and intricacy that you might be tempted to classify Bardo as progressive black metal, atmospheric black metal, post-black-metal, or all of the above. But whatever shorthand you might choose to use, the music is electrifying and emotionally powerful." -- No Clean Singing
"The band’s set was obscure and vibrating: a progressive touch layered every proposal, but there was equal rawness, a symbiosis that worked well and created a lively current throughout the crowd. The group ran through compositions which ranged from quick/punk to long/colossal to first-wave black metal. There was crushing width throughout, intricacy and transcendence.” -- Invisible Oranges
