"Mountains, Myth & Murder", the fourth full-length incantation by the Danish experimental metal act PICTURE ANN, is available for download and streaming on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. Musically and lyrically, the album covers quite a lot of ground and yet the main themes associated with PICTURE ANN, namely longing and loneliness, are always at the forefront and course through the veins of this cursed thing at all times. Forlorn melodies, hypnotic riffs, awful synthesizers, and a total lack of production; it is all there for the taking. It will ruin your day and leave you somewhere terrible, but is that not what we all want and desire anyway?

While the trilogy ("Mountains", "Myth", and "Murder") is a moody and haunting exploration of the German expedition to Tibet in 1938-1939, other tunes explore the nameless guilt that is present in Edgar Allan Poe's timeless writings ("Dystopian Logic"), the Royal Conspiracy theory in relation to Jack the Ripper ("The Abberline Diary That Never Was"), and the soothing effect of listening to Marianne Faithfull's nicotine-stained voice on a melancholy night in June while mending old wounds ("Gasmask Ballet – The Extended Cut"). All songs were composed, recorded, and left un-mixed by J.N. on stormy nights.

Tracklist:
1. Anna Liked Dying Places
2. Mountains
3. Myth
4. Murder
5. In Cipher
6. Dystopian Logic
7. The Abberline Diary That Never Was
8. Wolves I Knew
9. Gasmask Ballet – The Extended Cut

New album from the experimental Danish metal entity: "The August Client"

Picture Ann is back with a brand new studio album that is as haunting and morose as ever. It consists of two compositions that revolve around hypnotic, melancholic, and repetitive motifs and yet they are riddled with nuances, layers, and dark textures.

J.N.: “The perfect soundtrack to either those long, lonely nights of yours that you so detest or an epic walk in the mountains. Either way, this is one album you do not want to miss out on. While the floating and ambient-like title track possesses an otherworldly vibe, the 31-minute long tune that is "Builders" is a strange and unsettling journey through different musical ideas and concepts relating to sacrifice, longing, and greatness.”

The album was released digitally via Bandcamp and YouTube on Friday the 25th of August:

2. The August Client

All songs by J.N. (2015-2017)
Mixed and recorded at Orlok Studios in Bergen, Norway

PICTURE ANN «METASTASIZING ANGEL» OUT NOW!

Rarely have PICTURE ANN sounded as organic and dynamic as they do on "Metastasizing Angel", the January 2018 digital single by the ever-elusive masters of experimental black metal, minimalistic rock, and strange, unsettling ambient music. This is dark, cinematic rock at its finest!

Its Wild Beauty by the experimental Danish ambient/rock entity is available on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon, Bandcamp, etc. on November 2

Picture Ann was spawned back in 2009 with the aim of composing and recording lo-fi metal/ambient/minimalistic rock music rather intuitively and on the spur of the moment. Raw, unfiltered crap, really. The first Picture Ann album entitled Blaspheme 2009 was released by 9th Meridian Records in June 2010 followed by an EP entitled Cinema Screen Sadism. Following the release of a Picture Ann/Sagntid/Vornoff split CD consisting of mostly unreleased material in August 2013, the full-length assault entitled A Bone Case for Papery Skin was unearthed digitally in March 2014 while the third album, The Darkness Had Texture, followed suit in January 2015. Yet another haunting album saw the light of day in 2016 (Mountains, Myth, and Murder) with a string of EPs following in its wake. 2017 saw the release of the epic The August Client while this 2018 compilation titled Its Wild Beauty contains the remastered versions of two different EPs originally released back in 2017 as well as an exclusive and rather trippy bonus track.

J.N.: “The hypnotic and trance-like quality of “Its Wild Beauty” ought to make it the perfect soundtrack to either those long, lonely nights of yours that you so detest or an epic walk in the mountains. While “Trade”, “Invasion”, and “Conquest” were essentially inspired by the TV series “Vikings”, the title track is a homage to Bronte's literary classic “Wuthering Heights” with the remaining three cuts (“Katarsis”, “Passage”, and “The Speer Cathedral”) being of a rather more introspective nature and focusing primarily on guilt.”

The album is out via Bandcamp on Friday November 2:

PICTURE ANN “BLOODLINES” DIGITAL SINGLE OUT NOW

Picture Ann was spawned back in 2009 with the aim of composing and recording lo-fi metal/ambient/minimalistic rock music rather intuitively and on the spur of the moment. Raw, unfiltered crap, really. A long line of singles, EPs, and abums have seen the light of day since then.

Following the recent release of the full-length album entitled “Strange Forces”, April 1 sees the release of a brand new single named “Bloodlines”, which was composed and recorded in rehearsals back in 2018.

J.N.: “Bloodlines is arguably the most organic and lively composition by Picture Ann to date. It was the result of a fruitful and downright mesmerizing jam-session that took place back in 2018. The ever-awesome Dan Ponce wrote the words for the piece and the entire thing revolves around the burden of legacy and the dark underbelly of heritage”.

The single is out via Bandcamp, YouTube, Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, and the likes on Monday April 1:
