The Monolith Deathcult are a band from the Netherlands that plays a very brutal form of death/doom metal with atmospheric and symphonic elements and this is a review of their 2010 album "the White Crematorium 2.0" which was released by Twilight-Vertrieb Records.
Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with alot of brutal blast beats mixed in with some synth elements that bring an atmospheric/industrial edge to the music mixed in with alot of samples while the bass playing sounds very very powerful and heavy with riffs that range from slow to fast.
Rhythm guitars cover alot of variety in the brutal death metal field with a good mixture of slow, midpaced and fast riffing that contains a good amount of melody while the lead guitars are atmospheric and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos with a great ammount of brutality.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams that have a slight black metal edge to them, while the lyrics cover Nazi's, World War II, Egyptian, Middle Eastern and Summerian Occultism with a strong hatred for Catholism and Christianity, as for the production it sounds very professional and heavy that gives all of the musical instruments a very brutal sound.
In my opinion The Monolith Deathcult are a very original sounding brutal death metal band that has some very good, heavy and powerful songs and if you are a fan of this genre and looking for something original you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Army Of The Despised" "Concrete Sarcophagus" "The Cruel Hunters" and "The White Crematorium. RECOMMENDED BUY.
