Battle Helm Rating

This is one ambitious project. «Nebula Septem» is MONOLITHE’s 7th album. The band has seven members. The album has seven tracks. All seven tracks are seven minutes long. Not a second longer or shorter. Pretentious or not? As much as I might find it somewhat cool all I really care about is the music. If that sucks then all the pretenses are just varnish without substance to me. Thankfully this is as good musically as it is cool a project. It is supposed to be funeral doom but this is so much more than that. This is doomy yet atmospheric. You don’t really think too much about it being slow when you listen to it. You are just caught in the universe that the music creates. It doesn’t have to be big and majestic to be beautiful. Even in death there is beauty. And this is beautiful in all its own glory.
