Intellectus Iudicat Veritatem

If you like your music heavy then this is like a ten tonne weight dropping on your head, it absolutely crushes. Monads send the listener on somewhat of a musical journey, exploring the heavy, palm-muted riffs that send your head nodding in an uncontrollable frenzy, to the sonic landscapes that give you a brief respite before slamming your head into a brick wall of sound again.
It’s not often that bands can actually make their music sound heavy, but Monads make each note weigh heavier in the air, dragging the listener to the floor before beating them into submission with their uncompromising riffs.
Certainly a band that needs to be heard!
