Review: Monolith – Daddy Plague

Monolith is a German death metal project by multi-instrumentalist Mario Welke accompanied with various other influences. The project is about to release its debut album Daddy Plague.

Daddy Plague

Daddy Plague features some impressive death metal riffs and brutal vocals, which manage to catch the listener’s attention from the beginning! Although the record is not the typical ‘raw’ death metal one, the vocals and the drums (from time to time) give us that raw atmosphere. The guitars, on the other hand, are quite brutal and show us the diverse and melodic side of the album. In this sense, the record is brutal but also melodic and catchy; I am sure that the listeners will want to hear the record again and again to hear a certain guitar riff, brutal vocals or the crushing drums. A highlight in the atmospheric elements; this aspect made the record much more fascinating and even a bit diverse in my opinion.
