Five years ago Monolithic parked their van outside Øra Studio in Trondheim, Norway, after zig-zagging around Europe for weeks. A crappy Toyota Hiace had doubled as a sweaty cocoon for a band that was changing. Half beaten and half unstoppable after weeks in dark european clubs Monolithic walked straight in to the studio and literally punched out their second album "Frantic Calm" as if it was a desperate fight to give the music one last deadly blow. And that´s exactly what happened. Now, five years later, Monolithic has finally taken the tapes out of the vault, given an old mixer some serious voltage and fired up their new album with an explosive force. This is a new Monolithic. Uncompromising, angry, and just plain brutal. This is nothing more than more of everything. This is Monolithic.Monolithic is the fists and guts of Kenneth Kapstad (Motorpsycho and others.) and Stian Westerhus.
