MONOLITHE IV has been critically acclaimed! Here is another glimpse of what has been said about the album.
METAL JERKY (9,5/10)
”(…)”Monolithe IV” is overall nothing short of a powerful depressive doom metal release. Every aspect of it is not only done right, but it is done better than many other bands of the same caliber. Any fans of the genre are highly recommended to this album, and it may even serve well as a gateway album for doom metal newcomers if they have the patience for its length. This is funeral/death-doom at some of its finest, and this is truly an album where you should get lost, but in a good way.”
”(…) Like some colossal vessel obscuring all light from neighbouring galaxies, such is the dirging, monumental passage of every Monolithe album.”
“(…) Music of the spheres played for a noble, giant humanoid race.”
INFERNAL MASQUERADE”(…)As a truly unique experience, this 57 minute behemoth of a release is just outstanding.”
“(…) we do have to say that you will not find anything like this in 2013. If you haven’t heard of Monolithe before, waste no time and get yourself a copy of this monumental release.”
BRING ON THE METAL”(…) the writing is quite frankly phenomenal as are the performances, with every instrument playing off of one another perfectly.”
“(…) “Monolithe IV” proves to be one of the most satisfying challenges in a long time, as the slow moments build to create powerful unleashes of emotion, like some type of heartfelt time bomb.
MEAT MEAD METAL“(…) IV” offers a titanic finale in a way that would be worthy of a giant, legendary big-screen blockbuster of old when you’d leave a theater stunned, amazed, and totally fulfilled.”
CONCRETEWEB”(…) IV for sure is a wonderful sonic experience with a nice dose on variation”
“(…) this fourth Monolithe-epos is, again, a must for every fan of melodic Abyssal Funeral Doom. Not a possibility, but a must, a necessity, an evidence!”
HEAVY METAL.ABOUT”(…) Beethoven wasn’t bad. Monolithe is transcendent.”
“(…) No band in history has accomplished such a living, breathing, ever-evolving masterwork”
RENKLS’S MUSIC”(…)It’s a distinctive release from Monolithe, and it solidifies their individual development as a band beyond the confines of the doom genre. Monolithe is best described as sounding monolithic here, but make no mistake, it is not as if this is a more static, unchanging display - but you must look much deeper then before to uncover what makes this album their most mature and refined work yet.”
