Omega Monolith

OMEGA MONOLITH (GR) “Black Campaign” MC (Catch The Soap Productions) 6€

This is an extremely impressive debut by a band who is imposing itself as one of the leaders of the local greek underground scene.

Omega Monolith is an instrumental duo whose sound I would say that it primarily reminds me of what I used to call “hydrahead metal”, aka the heavy, psychedelic, drones of bands like Pelican, Tusk, Mare, 5ive, Tarantula Hawk, Isis, Red Sparrowes, Knut, Switchblade,etc. The band has also clearly learned a lesson or two from the classics: Earth, Neurosis, Swans… Their own, personal twist is a blackened vibe, quasi-BM, reminiscent of Aluk Tudolo.

With an absolutely amazing production (very massive, very powerful), the band mesmerizes with hypnotic loops and memorable dynamics, displaying world class quality and momentum. The epic artwork by Viral Graphics completes the special aura of this fantastic recording.

Watch out for Omega Monolith’s contribution to forthcoming double Monomaniac volume 2&3!
