I honestly doubt that this one will be released a year after III seeing how long it took them to release the other three

Well, they're gonna start recording it soon so there's certainly a chance that it'll be released this year and they've said they'll try to push it out before the year's end.

Got a heavy boner for this one as III was absolutely fantabulous.

Haven't heard a note from this yet, but can I assume it's nothing like Interlude Second and is in fact another straight up f-doom album?

it's a totally logical follow-up to III, so draw your conclusions from that

Fair enough. I probably won't check this out in a hurry then. I wasn't blown away by III, though it was fairly decent I suppose.

I'm no doom connoisseur, but this seems rather atypical for the genre. I only say that because I usually find most doom uneventful. Then again I don't have adequate knowledge of the genre to back that up. While calling it groovy might be pushing it, it certainly has head-bob worthy riffs and drum beats, laced with tasty melody for a cherry on top.

I was dying to hear before it was released, but somehow I am procrastinating listening to this. Should finish this by today.

Going to check out Monolithe III I guess, because this album is pretty damn awesome. Of course I already knew the debut but I think I like this one more.

Good, atleast I don't have to argue with you when it comes to doom albums. It's atmoblack where we don't agree on things.

After two back-to-back listens, I can firmly state that this is anything unlike III. This is more doomy in its own right and has a totally different vibe to it than the last one which was very highly spacey and almost blackish. Though I hear that brilliant motif from the last record 17.50 mins into this. In the end I won't rate it as highly as the last one. But it still is one of the great doom albums of this year. And distinctively Monolithe-y in its own right. So, darn good I say.

One thing to love in this album are the amazing choruses. Reminds of that scene from the 2001: A Space Odyssey movie where the chaotic chorus starts to pick up when anything goes near that black monolith.
