about

"Monolithe I" is bitter, depressive, soul-crushing, heart-rending and beautiful at the same time, it imprisons you in a world of gentle grief and sorrow, where you lie bleeding willingly. Every single instrument taking part in the world of "Monolithe I" sounds stunning and unerring, with every member of the band pouring his soul to the atmosphere of the compositions. The guitars play a highly important role since the guitarists in the band are neither one nor two, but three. There are times that you hear to bombastic ultra heavy riffing from the one guitar and the others weave their deeply distressing and utterly depressive melodies with their painful sound as you find yourself dancing among razors. The keyboard melodies play an atmosphere-evoking role, making the overall aesthetic of Monolithe's music even more desperate with their devout yet doleful approach. The rhythm section (the drumming is programmed) lends its groove and dynamic sound to the overall sound of the band and makes it more imposing for sure. When the time comes to talk about the vocals I guess the name Richard Loudin (Despond) says a lot and he makes a soulful testimony in the vocal factor, whether he grunts in an unearthly deep grunting way or just recites in despondency.
