The third full-length from French doomsters MONOLITHE follows a familiar pattern to its predecessors, comprising one epic song sprawled out over an incredible 52 minutes. There the similarities end: "Monolithe III" introduces a bigger, bolder and more sophisticated incarnation of this internationally-acclaimed act, which has forged a solid reputation for itself as a genre-defining entity. Teeming with powerful, crushing, dark-yet-melodic Doom Metal, "Monolithe III" ushers the listener on a journey through time and space, introducing a plethora of moods and twists along the way. Following on from the themes explored on previous releases, this new full-length follows the fate of mankind in a distant, remote future, where everything is possibly known and done. MONOLITHE's trademark sound has been honed and perfected, a seamless union of heavyweight rhythm guitars, twin leads and dark layers of keyboards all contained within a mystic, grandiose atmosphere. A landmark release for band and label alike, "Monolithe III" soars timelessly, forging a unique link between the prehistoric past and an uncertain future. The quintessential listening experience; live it.
