Staff review by

Behold! It's big, it's heavy and it's descending from the skies to flatten you in an unrelenting rain. Behold! It's the Monolith! The Defender, Redeemist comes to claim your ears with its volatile concoction of stoner riffs riding atop a behemoth of doom licked sludge.

This album changes face at the drop of a hat from the all weapons unholstered approach of tracks like "Halv King" and "We Are The Worm" to the immense and lurking presence of the three part "Cast On The Black/Lamentor/Guided By The Southern Cross." The flattening finale "Bull Colossi" straddles the line between sludge and stoner, more than living up to its title.
