4 stars Dear fellow hardheaded progressiphiles, try imagine a band that plays a mix style of Opeth and In Flame or Dark Tranquility. If you happen to love those aforementioned, this is it...this is Monolith.

I have to say I don't know much about the previous releases of In Mourning as this album, Monolith, is happen to be the first In Mourning CD I've ever own (Thank you PA .) What I do know is there are pretty much resemblance of Swedish metal sound incorporated in this release. And since I am a hardcore Opeth fan and was for Dark Tranquility/In Flame admirer, I found this album very pleasing. There is not much left to say about their sound since a terminology like Opeth + Dark Tranquility is quite self explanatory. Mixing, production and musicianship wise, they are topnotch. The only thing that I don't like is vocal style. I used to like it but as I grow older, however, I find this kind of top-of-the-lung growling/screaming is quite let down.

Very good album for Tech/Extreme Prog. Almost full 4 stars. But for Swedish Melodic Death Metal lover, this album is 5 stars.
