Merciful Nuns have quickly made a name for themselves over the past year. Their successful debut album 'Lib I' and its follow up 'Hypogeum II' returned to the mystical, haunting anthems of the early Garden Of Delight sound (to the joy of a legion of followers!). Now the band's new EP 'Ancient Astronauts' looks to capitalise on this momentum with another collection of modern Gothic rock anthems inspired by the mysteries of the Megalithic culture. Merciful Nuns have crafted another great EP here that fans of classic Gothic rock can get their teeth into. The modern production does a lot more for the band's sound and better reflects the tightness of their performance.
