MENCEA will release their new album, “Pyrophoric,” on February 23rd in Europe and March 27th in North America. The eight track-long soundtrack of unearthly moods, demonstrates an immensely wide sonic landscape, packing punch and diversity that few bands can match. Most of all, it undoubtedly shows that MENCEA belongs to a movement of bands exploring boundaries between extreme metal sub-genres, often morphing into a mix of extreme metal with progressive sensibilities and a non-conformist approach to melody as well as storming rhythmic outbursts. “Pyrophoric” is a fresh, and fearlessly musical approach to what MENCEA is all about: energy, sonic richness and sheer heaviness.
MENCEA emerged in 2008, with their debut album entitled “Dark Matter, Energy Noir..” The album was very well received by the press in the U.K, Scandinavia, Benelux and the south of Europe. With a good start on the debut album the band went on to share the stage with acts such as Gojira, Heaven and Hell, Sepultura and Enslaved. MENCEA were invited to play at festivals across Europe, including Inferno Metal Festival, UK Metal Hammer’s own Hammerfest etc. as well as a number of supporting slots in Norway, Germany, Greece and the UK.
