Deathbomb Arc is thrilled to be working with Dos Monos again, for our 4th vinyl release from this ground breaking Japanese hip hop trio. They've evolved their sound for this 11 track album, bringing old and new fans alike a heavy dose of pure blistering energy.

Dos Atomos is the groups first full-length album since their debut "Dos City" (2019) and marks their biggest musical turning point. Here they make a bold leap from their signature sample-driven sound and mix everything they loved as children, from rap metal, noise rock and even J-rock, with live instrumentation and help from some guest musicians such as the legendary Otomo Yoshihiae. The result is the most explosive project they've done yet.

Dos Atomos is also a conceptual piece centered around the sun and nuclear power ~ especially as it relates to the group's strong desire to re-think what it means to be Japanese; a feeling that arose after touring Europe with black midi in 2022.

While Japan is a country that has worshiped the sun as one of their main gods (even the national flag is the sun itself), Japan is a country to suffer from "artificial sun", bombed with nuclear weapons and suffering from nuclear disaster. Nuclear power has also been gravitating motif in modern Japanese art and culture, such as with Godzilla, Nausicaä and Takashi Murakami. This album speaks about this ambivalent relation between Japanese people and "the sun".
