Biography

Tetragrammaton, the Monolith Deathcult’s fourth studio album, was undoubtedly one of the most exciting new albums of 2013. Their unique combination of ultrabrutal death grind and industrial and symphonic elements is suffused with electronic freakiness and industrial samples, resulting in a versatile and epic monster that knocks you senseless. Just think Nile, Ministry, Strapping Young Lad and early Fear Factory. To top it all off, the intelligent and sarcastic lyrics don’t pull any punches and deal with such topics as genocide and dictatorship. Whoever said that metal lacks a sense of humour? Their new EP ‘Bloodcvlts’ is yet another slab of spine-crushing metal that references the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Nile, Death and Napalm Death. Once you get used to the intensity, you’ll be hooked in no time! (#GMM17)
