Initiating a new era of deep darkness, Debemur Morti Productions is honoured to announce a pact in blood with French doom mongers MONOLITHE.
After two critically-acclaimed albums and two digitally-released EPs, the band is currently working on “Monolithe III“, a new album heralded as a “progression in continuity”. In a few months, you’ll be invited to sink into MONOLITHE‘s bleak world of horror and nothingness, where only desolation prevails.
To whet your appetite for the impending doom, you can listen to the latest EP, “Interlude Second“, at the following location : http://monolithe.bandcamp.com
Among the contemporary Doom Metal bands who have risen in the international scene during the last decade, French-based MONOLITHE, whose musical journeys opened up new horizons for the genre, stood out from the mass since its early days.
MONOLITHE ‘s music needs to be lived more than listened to. Its atmosphere is grandiose and epic. The entire discography is a musical saga that mixes heaviness, mysticism and complex structures tinged with hints of progressive flair. The listener is invited into a world of beauty, horror and nothingness.
Formed in 2001, MONOLITHE is the creation of Sylvain Bégot. Their debut album, “Monolithe I” was released in 2003 (Appease Me…) and started the series of 50-minute, single-track albums which would later become the band’s trademark.
“Monolithe I” was a well-received effort and MONOLITHE were able to establish themselves on the international stage. With “Monolithe II” released in 2005 (Candlelight Records/ Appease Me…) the band maintained they did not want to become repetitive but intended to harmonize their saga by maintaining consistency in their lyrics and music.
With their EPs “Interlude Premier” (2007) and “Interlude Second” (2012), MONOLITHE tried to push the frontiers of the genre by experiencing and using unusual musical vocabulary. These two records have been released on the internet free of charge.
From now on, MONOLITHE are partners with Debemur Morti Productions. They are currently writing their new album, already announced as a“progression in continuity”.
Again, this new piece will consist of a single long track.
