French doom mongers MONOLITHE are currently busy recording their fourth full-length album at Red Reed Studio. The band's composer, Sylvain Begot, comments about Monolithe IV :
"Once again we tried to create something that would instantly evoke Monolithe's style of music and mythology without being a repetition of what we've already achieved in the past. Monolithe IV is an album of contrasts: it contains both the bleakest and most beautiful music we ever wrote. Some very eerie stuff too... This album mixes the purity of our early sort of Funeral Doom with our later thirst for progression and innovation. I like to call it "Post Funeral Doom", if that makes any sense."
If all goes according to plan, this new piece of massive sound will be released in fall 2013 via Debemur Morti Productions.
Furthermore, Debemur Morti Productions will reissue the entire Monolithe back catalogue: Monolithe I, Monolithe II and Monolithe Zero (which will feature Interlude Premier and Interlude Second as well as bonus material). These reissues will come as classy digipack CDs, will include additional liner notes and complete new artwork courtesy of Norwegian artist Robert Høyem from At The Ends. Robert is already known for crafting the cover of Monolithe's third opus, Monolithe III.
Monolithe III is streaming in its entirety on the label's Bandcamp page here
and is currently available worldwide in digipack CD through your best local purveyor or through the label's webshop.
