Monotheist is back with an EP that simply rages! It is technical progressive death metal, both beautiful and brutal. The guitar work makes the album thrive; there is seriously amazing lead guitar work on Genesis. The song arrangements are thoughful, and there are enough varying influences to keep the songs fresh. In fact, they might throw so much in there that it’s almost impossible for the record to get stale. The clean vocals are a bit of an acquired taste, though, and I could see how they wouldn’t sit well with some; however, they struck me as beautiful. Spend some time getting acquainted with this. You won’t be sorry.
