With many tours and three hit albums behind them, Ministry of Echology created the sound of their new album "HORIZON", just released by Zona Music and The State 51 Conspiracy.
"HORIZON" is the fourth album of Ministry of Echology, the biggest reggae and dub band in Lithuania. This album was created in Vilnius and the dubby sound is what the band is like in their live concerts. After three initial albums, Ministry of Echology opened up to exploring multiple genres, soaking them in what they love about reggae and dub - word, sound and power. Most of their repertoire consists of their own compositions that reflect the flow and mood of this particular style and beyond. Presenting music ranging from roots reggae through lovers rock to rub-a-dub and dub and not even stopping there, Ministry of Echology share their own take on the music they love. They say:
It does not have to be reggae! Listen and hear for yourself!
Using the power of a word and sound, Ministry of Echology fire up and lift off and it’s very hard not to dance when you hear this band strike up. That's why the band invites you to the album release concerts in Vilnius on November 25th, Kaunas on December 2nd and Klaipėda on December 3rd.
One of the album's "HORIZON" singles "Čiobreliai" (eng. -“Thyme”) and its video were released a few weeks ago. The band sends a message that is universal:
Building mountains and moving them, calling to wake up, as the sun is over horizon, loving deeply, as, oh, love, how else could you be loved, calling for a dialogue and sharing their most inner experiences.
