Monads "Intellectus Iudicat Veritatem"
Monads surprised everyone with their debut
'Intellectus Iudicat Veritatem'. Initially released by the band
on MC (50 copies), all tapes were sold out after six days.
Monads combine elements of slow and dragging funeral
doom with melodic death/doom parts. The combination is a
completely crushing, heavy and unique atmosphere that
redefines the meaning of 'doom'. Once in a while we are
surprised with influences from other styles, like in 'Broken
Gates to Nowhere', where we find ourselves drifting away
on a post-rock influenced second half, reminding of
Daturah, God is an Astronaut and Mono; or 'Absent as
in These Veins', which ends in a fiery and fast blastbeat
black metal passage. The release was presented on 10
September 2011, where Monads opened the evening for
IXXI and Lifelover, being praised (by audience and bands)
as the best band of the evening. Now, finally, the debut has
been re-released on deluxe digipak CD by Ordo MCM.
