Canadian post metal experimentalist Unreqvited signs with Prophecy Productions. Releases new album "Mosaic II: la déteste et la détresse" alongside re-print of "Disquiet" and split EP "Time Without End", ushering in a new era of sonic exploration.
Canada’s Unreqvited has been a musical proving ground that continues to defy categorization. With a critically praised catalog of groundbreaking releases assembled over the last few years, the prolific artist known only as 鬼 (Chinese symbol for “Ghost”) has become revered as an innovator in the atmospheric black metal scene. Two years after his 2016 debut "Disquiet", which married black melancholy with electronic opulence, both "Stars Wept To The Sea" and "Mosaic I" showed distinct diversity, delving into ethereal cosmos and avant-garde experimentation.
"Mosaic II: la déteste et la détresse" is the sequel to 2018’s "Mosaic I: l'amour et l'ardeur", wherein 鬼 expresses "I am enthralled to announce my partnership with Prophecy Productions for Unreqvited's fourth full-length. I have spent a lifetime admiring the label's artists and could not be more thankful for the opportunity to unveil the sequel to 'Mosaic I,' which was an outlet for all of the joy, euphoria and passion I felt over the course of last year. 'Mosaic II' contains the ire, misery and anxiety in between, making it my darkest, most daring release to date."
"Mosaic II: la déteste et la détresse" is available as Digipak CD, gatefold LP (black, ltd. purple) and 2CD artbook featuring "Mosaic I" on disc two. Coinciding with its release, Prophecy re-issues "Disquiet" as Digipak CD, gatefold LP (black, ltd. silver), both including an unreleased bonus track. Also created, the split LP "Time Without End" featuring Sylvaine, out as Digipak CD and LP (black, ltd. dark green).
