My review of Black Monolith’s latest album is up over at Summoning Spirits. Give it a read.
“Over the past few years, the USBM scene has really come in to its own. Whilst there has been a long list of USBM bands over the years that have produced exceptional music, a growing sense of style and scene has been forming in more recent times, with the US leading the way in punk-infused black metal. Away from the headline-grabbing works of bands like Liturgy and Deafheaven, there has been a growing number of bands producing excellent music on their own terms. without courting tabloid levels of controversy over their levels of kvlt. Oakland, CA’s Black Monolith are one such band, as demonstrated on their new release, Passenger, where the music does the talking for them.”
