Portuguese death/groove metal act MONOLYTH have released its debut album «Origin» on October 10th. The momentum was celebrated with a blazing show at Bar do Estudante with their countrymen REVOLUTION WITHIN, KRITTER, TERROR EMPIRE and SOTZ.
«Origin» was recorded in Audioplay/Palco Central Studios, in Portugal, with producers Andrés Malta and André Rodrigues, this latest being responsible for the mixing and mastering at Fullpower Studios. The record also comprises special featurings by André Macedo [COLOSSO, ex-NEBULOUS] and Andrés Malta [MUNCHIES, ex-BEAUTIFUL VENOM] on the tracks «Fake Symptom» and «Denied And Broken», respectively.
This album comes packed with plenty of reassuring brutality. The songs are heavy, riff-laden, and intense vocals that scream deep are entrancing complete with death metal growls This style of playing goes magnificently with a well-amplified sense of melody. The music is consequently dark, memorable, and seems to possess a theme within each song.
Not only is "Origin" a brutal album, but it also more unique, memorable, layered and complex. Bringing all of these talents together has made each song different and unforgettable across many paths, with plenty of variation. Monolyth has proved that they hold a hidden flare for enhancement deep within their loins, and anything may be possible. What we already know is that they are well on their way to a promising upward slope.
