Dutch extreme metallers THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT have inked a deal with the French label Season Of Mist. The band's fourth album, "Tetragrammaton", will be released later in the year. The CD is once again being produced by Guido Aalbers, who has previously worked with COLDPLAY and DESTINY'S CHILD, among others.

According to a press release, THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT chose the "Tetragrammaton" album title "because of the triple 'A' in it, to emphasize their major role in the world as we know it and because AAA stands for 'prime.'

"As on the exquisite and rabidly fanaticised 'Trivmvirate', offline band member, quondam carnivore and part-time macrobidiotic Carsten Altena, who had left the sinking THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT mud barge in 2010 and has returned grovelling, mawkish and regretful with tail between his legs, will gracefully adorn 'Tetragrammaton' with synthetic flutes, harps, triangles, Tibetan mouth congas and other trifling instruments (which can been seen as a vile assault of the inheritance Chuck Schuldliner left to this world)to mask the musical incompetence of the rest of the band."

THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT's last album, "Trivmvirate", was released in February 2008 via Twilight-Vertrieb. The CD was recorded at Ground Zero studio with producer Pascal Altena. Mixing and mastering duties were handled by Guido Aalbers.
