Mono return without the orchestra for their latest tag-team of albums, with 'Rays Of Darkness' providing a scorched and blackened companion piece to the more redemptive 'The Last Dawn', with the two being released simultaneously. In contrast to that more uplifting LP, this one provides a devastating wall of crumbling distorto-drones and harsh noise riffing that sees a bit of a return to the urgent intensity of their early releases.
6/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017
Recorded at the same time and released on the same day as The Last Dawn. Both albums compliment each other but take different sides of the same story. Rays of Darkness is the sad side, it features songs of hopelessness, futility of life and despair. It certainly lives up to its title as the band goes to great lengths to make a dark sounding album. Now, this one comes close to matching its sister album but it ends up being hit and miss. This is a good album but it has things on it that I don't care for, but it still has merit because of the two great songs (Tracks 1 and 3).
