3.5 greatDavid Mackowiak | June 8th 17

Interesting conceptually (relating to the Nazis research into the far flung science fiction realms and the mystical) and interesting structurally. The Monolith Deathcult don't write songs so much as they write sweeping, vast pieces; sometimes starting and stopping in completely different locales. The first half has quite a bit of industrial style sampling, much like their older stuff, but this trails off gradually in the second half as the symphonics escalate the general mood into full movie score. It has its share of negatives; Die Glocke's immediate sample is flatout cringey, badly utilized and constantly repeated, there are lulls strewn here and there throughout the sonic meshes they call songs, and the final track plods so hard here it feels like it's walking on two broken legs. Still though, the band have always had an interesting idea, and here they expand on it in unusual ways while not scaring away their core fan base.

Monolith Deathcult have an interesting sound. They play industrialized atmospheric death metal that is also pretty progressive. They do it really well, too.
