Monolithe is, contrary to popular belief, a one-man project with multiple side musicians. Sylvain Bégot, the mastermind behind Monolithe is involved in the epic doom metal band Anthemon. Monolithe strays from the eclectic atmosphere that Anthemon presents, and dishes an absolutely demented, depressive soundscape.MONOLITHE GENRES
Such, the band is infamous for making both their current releases, I and II, in one long, desperate song. Both exceed 50 minutes in length and, even while possessing this length, never begin to sound monotonous. Some keyboards and on Monolithe II, accordions meet their funeral doom songs.
More information can be found at their official website, listed below.
The new MCD, coined the name "Interlude Premier," will be released on the first of March 2007 through their website.
