Severed monolith clocks in at a comfortable 44 minutes with 10 tracks (three of which are intro/instrumentals) that flow seamlessly from start to finish. Dark lyrics of man’s inner conflicts and self-destructive nature prevail throughout the album with Henry Kuula’s deep guttural vocals in command.
Bombastic blast beats combined with intricate arrangements from Kauko Kuusisalo on the drum kit, keeps things ferocious even on some of the slower doomier passages. The onslaught twin guitar attack from Jukka Aho and Paul Gurko is a fast frenzied grind with blistering solos. Tami Luukkonen rounds out the band with an insanely fast and intense bass bottom end.
Severed Monolith is a brutal death metal masterpiece that hits you like a hammer pummeling the senses. Aside from the instrumental interlude “Words That Solve Problems” the album is a head banging delight.Gorephilia – Severed Monolith
