Of Monsters And Men - Beneath The Skin download album

Beneath the Skin is the second studio album by Icelandic indie folk band Of Monsters and Men; it was released on 8 June 2015 in Iceland, and a day later in the rest of the world. The album artwork and design has been created by artistic director Leif Podhajsky. It debuted at number three on US Billboard 200, selling 61,000 copies in its first week, became the band's highest-charting album. The album title is derived from a lyric in the song "Human": Plants awoke and they slowly grow beneath the skin.

About Beneath the Skin. This is an intriguing album, with the recurring theme of storms, and colors. Storms are huge plot points in Empire,Thousand eyes, I of the Storm, and Winter Sound. Storms can be interpreted as crisises. Color is a theme in nearly every song, but especially Hunger, Empire, Organs, and Backyard. Feel free to explore- If you dare. Beneath the Skin Q&A. Producers Alex Somers, Chris Taylor, Of Monsters and Men & 1 more.

Of Monsters and Men create rousing, cinematic indie rock in spectacular fashion, and the thundering Crystals, with splashy cymbals and bursting choruses, starts their sophomore album in an awe-inspiring manner. Beneath The Skin aims for the rafters: Hunger starts in a hushed state, punctuated by acoustic guitar strums before rising into battering drums. Empire glows with synth and golden harmonies. And the tempestuous oceans Black Water conjures with its massive, wordless choruses and melancholy melodies feel infinite. Beneath The Skin (Deluxe) Of Monsters and Men. Alternative.

Em D So breathe in, breathe out. C Let the human in. VERSE 2 Em D The air is silk. C D Shadows form a grin. Em D If I lose control. C D I feed the beast within. Am C F It's warm, the skin I'm living in. Am Em F It creates and shapes what is within. Am G F So please look away, don't look at me. Am Em F As we sink into the open se. .F We are the sleepers. Am We bite our tongue.

Likewise, Beneath The Skin revisits some locales, characters, and feelings established in MHIAA. There’s a dark, ominous sea (MHIAA’s King and Lionheart and Beneath The Skin’s Black Water ). There’s talk of a couple ruling (also MHIAA’s King and Lionheart and Beneath The Skin’s Empire ). What’s curious is that Hilmarsdóttir characterized this LP as like an open book when many of its songs are veiled in dense similes. Your enjoyment of Of Monsters and Men’s new album may largely hinge on whether you hear their animalistic motifs as gimmicky or as a legitimate narrative vehicle. Regardless, the band has turned in a safe record that doesn’t stray too far from their last offering. Essential Tracks: Thousand Eyes, Organs, and Black Water. Tags.

Reviews about Of Monsters And Men - Beneath The Skin (2):
Does the islandic version contain a different mastering like the previous album?The difference on 'My Head Is An Animal' - compared to the world wide release - is huge.
The Icelandic release's mastering is different indeed. There is no deluxe edition and Europe's deluxe edition's bonus tracks "Winter Sound" and "Backyard" are contained in the standard release as the sixth and the thirteenth track respectively. The European edition's remixes are not included, but I guess that the European edition is available as an import release in the country. If you are intrested in purchasing it, it is still available through Record Records official site http://recordrecords.com/product/of-monsters-and-men-beneath-the-skin/
