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.”
TERRORIZER (9/10)”(…) 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.”
DOOM-METAL.COM”(…) it never loses its grip, its magic, bestowing waves of harrowing frequencies upon the listener’s senses, engulfing even the last cynic out there in an envelope of warmth, mystery and visions of transcendence.” “(…) This massive work of beauty and darkness should be listened to, and experienced, by anyone who remotely appreciates both Funeral and Death Doom Metal. No heart, no soul, no flesh, shall be unscathed by ‘IV’. “
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.”

A glimpse of press feeback on MONOLITHE IV
METAL OBSERVER (9/10) “(…) This is more organic and more alive than before but it is still towering and dauntingly heavy. There aren’t many acts that can match the crushing heaviness of MONOLITHE.” “(…) This is soul enveloping, bone crushing heaviness from the French masters of long-winded Doom Metal.”
METALREVIEWS (90/100) “(…) crushing doom done to perfection, a compelling and majestic sound that summons such worship from devotees for a reason.” “(…) Monolithe IV is a wonderful doom album, an easy contender for the year-end awards, and a stunning reminder of the power of metal. Awe-inspiring.”
NO CLEAN SINGING”(…) It’s a staggering and staggeringly heavy march, with an aura that’s both regal and downtrodden, the sound of a kingdom being torn to the ground. Titanic riffs and mammoth drum beats land heavy body blows, while the guitar leads slither and shimmer with otherworldly fire. Monstrous vocals roar heartlessly, and choral voices soar wordlessly. At only six minutes, this seems like the harbinger of an album that will be all-consuming.”
METAL-FI (4/5)”(…) In less than 12 months, Monolithe has delivered another piece of truly epic doom. III casts a long shadow, and it’s really impressive that the band was able to deliver a new album so quickly that both stands apart and on equal footing with its exemplary predecessor.”
AVE NOCTUM (8/10)”(…) It is definitely the most intriguing of the four parts, In fact, if heads are spinning in anticipation, they’ll be flying off their hinges when they hear this.(…) This is the best from Monolithe yet, and that is not said lightly. It’s all very impressive for a genre that constantly threatens to stagnate.”
METAL FRANCE (4.5/5)”(…) une chose est sûre, le combo aura clôturée l’aventure sans faux pas, livrant ainsi quatre albums sur une décennie qui sont tous sans exception, de grande qualité. (…) Unique, avant-gardiste et complexe, l’expérience sonore des français ne trouvera pas de concurrence digne de ce nom avec un long moment.”
METAL SHIP (8.9/10)”(…) Ce qui fait également la force du groupe c’est de pouvoir provoquer chez l’auditeur une remise en question et une recherche de notre place sur cette Terre.  Une nouvelle fois, et je me répète certainement, Monolithe nous propose une musique très riche. L’album a beau se composer d’un unique morceau, aucun moment de lassitude ou d’ennui ne se fait ressentir.”
