The cult rock group Mansion, born in Turku, Finland in 2011, have released their sophomore LP »Second Death« on January 13th, 2023. To commemorate this occasion, the band have unleashed a music video for the song »No Funeral«.
“Unforgiven sinners are not worthy of the last anointment on their death beds. There won’t be a burial for any of these godless bodies. They will simply be decimated from the face of the earth. There are wicked rumours about, that the song sounds like the undead body of Portishead would have risen wheezingly from its grave,” the band summarises the song which is now released as a video.
»Second Death« album features their heaviest compositions and arrangements to date. Musically the group has been scooping influences both from the current world situation as well as the general decadence of communality.
In the last ten years the band has outputted three extended plays as well as the full-length debut »First Death Of The Lutheran« in 2018. The band declare that, what it comes to the lyrics and the compositions, atmospherically, this upcoming release will be their heaviest yet. The group has been scooping influences into their music both from the current world situation as well as the general decadence of communality.
“This release will contain the accounts of challenges of the select few; those that will sit in safety with the Lord when the trumpets of heaven are roaring while angels mourn the passing away of humanity. The album’s hymns attack the pitiful bearers of unclean thoughts, the turncoat serpents among the flock and the hypocritical justice of the sorrowless”, the band summarises their forthcoming release.
The band commented their first single »You Are Suspicious« from this album as follows: “Forget about your devious mind games, for Mother Alma sees through you and your wicked mind. You are going to get caught for your trespasses, have no doubt about it in your deceitful little mind. The present hymn deals with the feeling of doubt, which once arisen, does not let one go so easily. The furious solo at the end is performed by Tommi Hoffrén from the Jess And The Ancient Ones, as if making an attempt, though being unsuccessful, at atoning his disgusting sins.”
The album has been recorded, mixed and mastered at the Noise For Fiction recording studio by Joona Lukala, whose resume includes work for such names as Reverend Bizarre and Michael Monroe. »Second Death« is available digitally, on a cassette, CD and vinyl.
The record can be bought through the group’s Bandcamp page: weshalllive.bandcamp.com/album/second-death
