Sludge/Doom Metal is one of the many genres of heavy music I’ve grown to really enjoy over the years. There are bands out there that try to capture that element and fall short, and there are bands that really deliver the goods. Behold! The Monolith falls into the latter. With their blend of sludge/doom along with prog and thrash, not to mention influences ranging from The Melvins, Celtic Frost and High On Fire, Behold! The Monolith put themselves on the map. Their newest release Architects Of The Void, is an album with solid riffs, groovy drums and nice subtle bass that go perfectly well with the gruff vocals. Songs like “Philosopher’s Blade,” “The Mithridltist,” “Lord Of Bones,” and “Architects Of The Void,” are stellar tracks. Behold! The Monolith are for sure a band that should be on your radar if you are looking for a great new sludge/doom metal band.
