01. Isolation (feat. Mikko Kotamäki)
02. Alone (feat. Mick Moss)
03. Echoes (feat. Alicia Nurho)

Born during the initial worldwide lockdown and incubated as the seasons passed, doom metal supergroup  MMXX  began as the sound of global isolation.

Not unlike the pandemic itself, MMXX have long harbored an unseen chapter: »The Next Wave«. First single, »Alone« is an anthemic five-minute funeral march featuring the unmistakable Mick Moss (Antimatter, Sleeping Pulse). The full 3 song EP »The Next Wave« includes the metallic and driving »Isolation« featuring Mikko Kotamäki (Swallow The Sun), and the melancholic and ethereal »Echoes« featuring Alicia Nurho.

»The Next Wave« will be released on vinyl by Candlelight Records, and like its 2022 full-length predecessor »Sacred Cargo«, contain stunning artwork from Portuguese fine-art photographer Henri Prestes.

The pandemic proved an especially inspiring and creatively prolific time for MMXX. Our desire to keep »Sacred Cargo« short enough to fit on a single vinyl, and our preferred sequencing of songs meant we had a few songs from the »Sacred Cargo« session left. As you will discover, they are by no means inferior, and we are pleased they will soon join »Sacred Cargo« as the ultimate epilogue to a global collaboration originating in the epicenter of pandemic isolation.

MMXX are:
Andrea Chiodetti (Italy · ex-The Foreshadowing) – Guitar, Keyboards
Jesse Haff (USA · Daylight Dies) – Drums
Egan O’Rourke (USA · Daylight Dies) – Bass
