The Last Monolith sounds like it was recorded in a sludgey swamp in the middle of nowhere! It's like the band carted their gear to an isolated clearing, plugged in (don't ask me where) and started grinding on slowly and loudly! The vocals don't kick in 'til Hawks & Vultures, yelled as though straining to be heard by the nearest civilisation, wherever they may be. And that's just the way it oughta be - loud! So crank it!
Favorite track: Kingdom's End.
