Swedish melancholic Metallers IN MOURNING have far transcended above
their predecessors with this intoxicating brand new full-length effort
Picking up right from where they left off with the highly successful
debut “Shrouded Divine”, “Monolith” continues with the same approach
but this is an entirely different beast, with far more accomplished
musicianship and songwriting. The compelling performance on “Monolith”
is way beyond words can describe; the throbbing sorrow and darkness
have finally eclipsed!
Recorded, mixed and mastered at Black Lounge Studio, Sweden (Carnal
Forge, Scar Symmetry, Steel Attack, etc) with Scar Symmetry axe-man
Jonas Kjellgren, and with the perfectly fitting style of introspect
artist Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth, Strapping Young Lad, King
Diamond, etc), “Monolith” is sonically and aesthetically lamenting, and
will without a doubt be one of the pinnacle albums in 2010.
