THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT Begins Recording New Album

Dutch extreme metallers THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT entered the studio last month to begin recording their fourth full-length album, "Tetragrammaton", for an early 2013 release via Season Of Mist. Songtitles set to appear on the the follow-up to 2008's "Trivmvirate" include "Human Wave Attack", "Drugs, Thugs & Machetes", "Todesnacht von Stammheim", "Quasr Al-Nihaya" and "Aslimu!!!-All Slain Those Who Brought Down Our Highly Respected Symbols To The Lower Status Of The Barren Earth". According to the band, the CD's overall lyrical theme will be roughly the same as on "Trivmvirate" and "The White Crematorium" (2005). "But then again," said guitarist/vocalist Michiel Dekker, "who cares about lyrical themes in death metal?"

As on "Trivmvirate", producing duties and Pro Tools wizardry will be done by Pascal Altena. Mixing duties will be handled by Guido Aalbers.

Also, hailing back from an unsurprisingly failed attempt to make "proper grown-up music," synthmeister Carsten Altena has sheepishly returned to the DEATHCULT flock as a full band member and will contribute much wailing and gnashing of teeth both on "Tetragrammaton" and during the band's live performances.

"Since 2008 — when we redefined art, music and human civilisation — we've been milking 'Trivmvirate' until it's cheese," said bassist/vocalist Robin Kok, "so we decided to make a new album and see if we can milk that even further."
