2 stars Debut album by UK post metal band Monolith. Instrumental music, combining repetitive simple sounds ,built on regular changes of soft mid tempo rhythmic guitar/drum pieces and faster and harder heavy metal guitar explosions.

Something between math-rock and post-metal, but far from progressive. Whenever repetitive musical pieces are part of the genre, just to make music listenable and not too boring, musicians must have some composition or musicianship abilities. Pity, but it is not a case with this album.

Simpler than average musical technique in combination with very few melodies doesn't work at all. At the end of the listening I was bored to death. Not everyone can survive monotonous repetitive sounds with regular changing of rhythm/sound level. Almost 50 minutes of music, but in fact it would be difficult to record even good single from that music material.

Avoid at any conditions.
