LENTO's first album EARTHEN has received great attention and rave reviews, so their long-awaited second album had to be confronted with high expectations - these expectations are easily met and exceeded by ICON. The foundations for ICON had been laid during two years of intense touring in Europe. In this time, LENTO have started to develop a more chaotic and restructured songwriting. This new level of sound has then been perfected during numerous hard rehearsels in the touring period, and has been deepened in a period of one year, which LENTO spent isolated in their home-based studio. In that year, LENTO managed to cast the molten outcome of their creative process into ten new songs. On ICON, LENTO explore a new range of emotions and feelings, and build up a very deep and dark universe driven by their usual postcore fury. Already with EARTHEN, LENTO convinced their listeners by being one of the most overwhelming and mind-blowing bands of today. On ICON, the song structures have been particularly developed to repeat and strongly strengthen this impression. The "Live Recording 08.10.2011" record compiles tracks of both successful records and transports the energy of a LENTO live gig on wax. For fans of MARE, early CULT OF LUNA, OMEGA MASSIF & SLEEP.
