HAIL SPIRIT NOIR - Mannequins LP
Prolific shapeshifters HAIL SPIRIT NOIR, of Greek origin, discard their progressive robes to celebrate their 10th anniversary with a one-off, emotional, horror-like and disco-driven record, "Mannequins".
Album number five of HAIL SPIRIT NOIR's bold discography - that spans from experimental Black Metal, to psychedelic progression, to retro-futurisic space rock - marks a full-blown, daring plunge into a synthwave-meets-sci-fi pop environment. With neither romance nor remorse, the transformation is devoid of Metal or rock instrumentation, and is highly reminiscent of an ‘80s horror movie soundtrack, whose story involves "aliens, disco clubs, ripped limbs, slashed necks and other beauties" explains co-founder Haris. The metamorphosis "Mannequins" brings about, puts on display how untamed and diverse can HAIL SPIRIT NOIR truly be, and positions the band in a whole new perspective, among the likes of Carpenter Brut, Perturbator or Dance With The Dead.
"Different as it may sound, we believe it still echoes the spirit and essence of HSN. Just drop the needle in your vinyl and dance," adds Harris.
