28. Monolithe – III

Monolithe are a French doom metal band whose previous two albums, I and II, were a lot like this new one: a single, 50+-minute song. How does a doom band, especially one with a fondness for slooooooooow funeral doom, maintain a single song for nearly an hour? It’s hard, but Monolithe has found the answer: you have to somehow feel like a jam band. There are these organic, almost spontaneous shifts in the song and when one happens it feels like a spark of inspiration. The band rides those moments like a jazz improvisation before returning to the refrain. It’s a remarkably easy listen for an hour-long song. Nothing feels forced or strained. It doesn’t reach the highs of longlonglong songs from bands like Persefone, but for doom fans this is an hour well-spent, and well worth returning to. YouTube doesn’t have this song/album up for listen, so the best I can do is link you to an album preview.
