Behold! The Monolith - Architects Of The Void


Crushing, dark, epic. Architects of the Void is a vicious journey through the wastelands and the wilderness of a cursed and forgotten land. With elements of all good things that are heavy, the new release by Behold! The Monolith is a musical battle hammer shattering the skulls of the weak and feeble.

Continuing in true warrior fashion, the LA based quartet were forced to regroup after the tragic death of previous frontman Kevin Mcdade back in 2013. Joined by Jordan Nailey (Vocals) and Jason (Cass) Casanova (Sasquatch) (Bass) Behold! The Monolith will be dropping this 7 song album like a ton of bricks on your unsuspecting face September 29th of 2015.

The album was produced by Billy Anderson who has also produced such greats as High On Fire, The Melvins and Neurosis. The artwork was done by Dusty Peterson (Bloodbath, Six Feet Under, Oceano). The entire album has a great vibe. Very dark and ominous. The vocals can go from a nice “angry growl” all the way to “blood thirsty Demon” like a flip of the switch. Lots of interesting cords and compositions. At a few different points during my listening experience, there were elements that were reminiscent of some classic bands like Enslaved, High On Fire, Neurosis and even a little pinch of Iron Maiden.

All together “Architects of the void” signals the triumphant return of these Iron clad warriors. Pre-order your copy today!
