Featuring the band’s previously internet-only released two EPs - 2007’s “Interlude Premier” and 2012’s “Interlude Second” - for the first time on CD, “Zero” will allow many MONOLITHEfollowers to listen to those songs for the first time, as well as two cover songs, one of them never having been released before. Originally released in two sections, “Interlude Second” ‘s song “Harmony Of Null Matter” is delivered in its full, uninterrupted 36 minutes version.
The entire track list has been remastered and wrapped-up in fantastic new artwork by visual master Robert Høyem.
From the harsh, heavy, almost brutal atmospheres of “Monolithic Pillars” to the eerie, ethereal and spacey experimentalism of “Harmony Of Null Matter”, “Zero” is a new, not-to-be-missed, 65-minute ticket to the cosmic mind trip the band’s music usually provides.
Doom of a New Age. Ambitious and presumptive, MONOLITHE’s sophomore album subjects the listener to one non-stop monstrous oppressive, almost scary, doom metal music, like a sharp dark pain applied to an open wound for 50 minutes in a row.
“Monolithe II” allows itself to be more melodic at the beginning to suck the unsuspecting listener into its suffocating vortex. On the later stages, monumental melodic riffs intermingle with dissonant parts intended to mess up all comprehending senses.
Find time to be alone for an hour. Disassociate yourself from everything else, your joys, fears, worries and ordinary emotions. Then… Immerse.
Both MONOLITHE II and MONOLITHE ZERO are set for release in 2014.
MONOLITHE II is a reissue of MONOLITHE’s 2005 sophomore album, all pimped-up with new artwork and new mastering.
MONOLITHE ZERO is a compilation featuring MONOLITHE’s two EP Interlude Premier and Interlude Second, as well as two cover songs, one of them never released before. The CD is wrapped once again by the flamboyant artwork of Robert Høyem
