STREAM: Monolithian - Monolithian EP
Incredible EP of blackened doom metal from new Cornish duo Monolithian. Shades of the ragingly epic Charger abound in the first track Yog Sothoth's coruscating vocal performance, the claustrophobic tones of the piece crushing the air and light out of the room with a slow momentum that shifts forward in heaving movements. There's also the distinct imprint of Electric Wizard stamped into the slow moving grooves as clouds of smoke billow into dark shapes in the wake of each new riff pushing through.
There's no other web presence for this band other than their Soundcloud page - not even a Last.fm, but keep an eye out for an increasing profile, for it is sure to follow hot on the heels of this.
