MONUMENTUM DAMNATI – IN THE TOMB OF A FORGOTTEN KING (Review by Varg The Mighty )

























International Death Doom band Monumentum Damnati have recently released their debut album, offering some powerful and dark elegance.
Starting with a keyboard intro that reminds of Godkiller, once the rest of the instruments come in you soon get mesmerised by the eternal, slow beauty from the doom side of it, only for a powerful voice like Septic Flesh to come in and add more layers of darkness. Overall, these songs also seem to have some important gothic inffluences, giving it a shape similar to Paradise Lost, yet with more of the symphonic side to it.
With incredible songs like “Anabioz” and “Infernal Sun”, the gloom transmitted gets a melancholic side to it that also reminds of My Dying Bride or modern acts like Pulchra Morte. This band is very promising, and it must be incredible to see them live with an orchestra someday, although on their own they will possibly also be able to deliver an incredible set.
I definitely recommend this album if you like Death Doom, Gothic Metal or Symphonic Metal. Hopefully we may soon hear more of them.
