MonumentuM biography
MONUMENTUM are from Milano, Italy formed in 1987 by Roberto Mammarella and Anthony Duman. They recorded a five track demo "Musaeum Hermeticum" in 1989 with Mox and Mark Westfall. After a short break-up in 1990, Obscure Plasma Records picked two songs from the demo and released a split MONUMENTUM/ROTTING CHRIST that became a cult classic in the underground scene. The band then signed with Euronymous' Deathlike Silence Production and later with Misanthropy Records with Roberto and Mox the only active members.

In 1995, the line-up is renewed with Maranzano (strings, keyboards, bass), Andrea Zanetti (vocals) and Francesca Nicoli as a session member. The band then released their debut album "In Absentia Christi" on Misanthropy Records.

In the next six years the band would only release two songs, one for a Misanthropy compilation and another for a Death SS Tribute.

Roberto obtains a contract with Moonfog and then was moved to a more experimental label Tatra Records. The line-up for their next release included Roberto, Andrea Bellucci (vocals, drum programming), Andrea Stefanelli (vocals), Daniele Bovo (guitar, piano), Diego Danelli (bass), Elisa Carrera (drums) and Alis Francesca Bos (vocals). The band released their second full length album "Ad Nauseam" on Tatra Productions in 2002.

The band officially broke up in 2004, but left us a compilation of rare remixed and unreleased tracks from 1996-2004 called "Metastasi."

WHY THIS BAND IS IN THE ARCHIVES:

MONUMENTUM is a very experimental metal band combining elements from doom/goth/ambient soundscapes to lyrical interpretations of poems from Tarchetti and Leopardi. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are highly recommended.

Review by toroddfuglesteg

— First review of this album —
3 stars Ahh.... By going through the archives, I found this band well hidden here. I also found and dusted off my own copy of this album.

The history of this band is very special to say at least. Monumentum were discovered by Řystein Aarseth, stagename Euronymous, in the infamous band Norwegian Mayhem. Euronymous also ran his own equally infamous record label Deathlike Silence at that time. My own copy of this album were released by the equally infamous Misantrophy Records in England after Varg Vigernes (Burzum) brutally murdered Euronymous in August 1993. I am not sure/cannot remember if this album were released by Deathlike Silence at all. But I remember Euronymous were raving about this band and this album. So that makes this album a pretty historic album by all means.

This band's mainman is Roberto Mammarella. The same man set up the extreme metal label Avant Garde Music who were pretty big in the 1990s. They are still with us today and have released some pretty avant garde metal albums. This in addition to the equally infamous and great Live In Leipzig album by Mayhem.

End of the history lesson.

I think it is fair to say that this album is a pioneering album in the avant garde metal genre and I am therefore very surprised to discover it has so far not been reviewed. After this album came a lot of copycats. Some of them with a lot of reviews here in ProgArchives.

OK, the music then.

The music here is very dark and mellow. It is a blend of funeral doom and industrial goth. Slow industrial goth, that is. The speed never moves faster than a funeral march. And that is basically what this is; a funeral march. Roberto and a female chimes in with some dark vocals on the top of the music on an infrequent basis. But the main object here is to express grief and sorrow. And the album succeed with that. But there are also a lot of beauty in this album.

The quality is good throughout. The music never becomes dull. Neither is this music, written and recorded in the early 1990s, anywhere near dated. It sounds pretty fresh, in fact. This is an album well worth checking out for all avant garde and metal fans out there.

3.5 stars
