Monolithe II

Rated 4/5 (80%) (3 Votes)

Released a couple of years after the first part, Monolithe II continues the story of humanity's rise and fall right as it colonizes the stars and catches a glimpse of its true purpose. The music here sort of reflects this, opting for a sound that's heavier and murkier than the first album while still retaining a massive guitar tone and some excellent melodic sections. This does mean the mood is more condensed and a bit less grand, so it's overall neither as engrossing as the first part nor does it reach the same highs. However, this is a bit more cohesive and has fewer parts that drag on for too long, so it's a fair trade-off that results in an album that's almost as good in a slightly different way. If you liked the first album, you can safely get this too.
