In the Tomb of a Forgotten King

Rated 4.33/5 (86.67%) (6 Votes)

Monumentum Damnati are an international Doom act formed in 2018 by six anonymous members that all go by pseudonyms. Fine by me, as it's the music that really matters, and that found on In the Tomb of the Forgotten King contains some amazingly atmospheric Doom that evokes despair, joy, beauty, and endless darkness all at once. The songs are all heavily melodic and often powerful, often contrasting lovely atmospheric sections with grim, moody movements, all supported by the Nick Holmes-esque growls of vocalist Thanatos. Every song contains standout melodies, whether they be from the moody keyboards of Athame or the killer guitar work, all of which brilliantly adds to the dreamlike atmosphere throughout the album. I can easily see this group becoming a darling of various Doom circles, and fans of bands like Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Swallow the Sun, and Insomnium will want to give this group their attention.
