Monolithe - Coil Shaped Volutions (Official Music Video 2017)


Among the contemporary Doom Metal bands who have risen in the international scene during the last decade, French-based MONOLITHE, whose musical journeys opened up new horizons for the genre, stood out from the mass since its early days.

MONOLITHE’s music needs to be lived more than listened to. Its atmosphere is grandiose and epic. The entire discography is a musical saga that mixes heaviness, mysticism and complex structures tinged with hints of progressive flair. The listener is invited into a world of beauty, horror and nothingness.

MONOLITHE 's music can be qualified as Dark Doom Metal : a Doom/Death basis on which we add other influences, from Extreme Metal to Progressive, passing through the adventurism and psychedelia of the 70's. The music is mostly loud and powerful, rich in riffs and atmosphere, very immersive and spatial. It evolves with each albums, MONOLITHE does not want to stagnate, neither to stick to the over-exploited codes of the gender. The band, which exist since 2001, released 6 albums, 2 EPs and a Best-Of. They have, at first, been known for their sets of albums composed of only one long track, starting with "The Great Clockmaker" saga ("Monolithe I - II - III - IV") and then followed by the duology "Epsilon Aurigae" and "Zeta Reticuli".

7 musicians gathered to record the 7-minutes songs to feature on MONOLITHE’s upcoming 7th opus - NEBULA SEPTEM.

On the album, the tonality of each song is one of the 7th notes of the western scale.
The first letter of the songs’ titles is one of the 7th first letters of the alphabet ; It is also the tonality of each song - from A to G.

Song lyrics develop science-fiction stories mainly focused on extra-terrestrial life. The music - while reminiscent of the band’s usual touch, is a new step ahead in the band’s career, with new influences and a rejuvenating approach.
