The Monolith Deathcult Signs To Season Of Mist

Season of Mist has issued the following announcement about signing a deal with The Monolith Deathcult:

"Season of Mist is proud to welcome Dutch madmen The Monolith Deathcult to the roster! The band's forthcoming album is entitled 'Tetragrammaton' and should be out later this year. Each member of The Monolith Deathcult expressed the wish to comment on the signing below."

Robin Kok (Bass/Vocals): "Our newest CD will be a pastiche of left-wing cant, fawning references, grandiose quotations and outright nonsense structured around the silliest lyrics we could invent about history and war. I shall have an article published about it in next month's Poststructuralist vs. Leavisite Quarterly in the Theoretical Mathematics & Automatic Rifle Review Supplement."

Michiel Dekker (Guitars/Vocals): "I am afraid that after the release of our upcoming monument of boredom 'Tetragrammaton,' Season of Mist will be called Season of Shit."

Ivo Hilgenkamp (Guitars/Vocals): On probation - Not allowed to say anything.

Sjoerd Visch (Drums): "Just placed an order for the new 745i, leather upholstery, the works. Happiest day of my life (met een F overigens)." More...

The Monolith Deathcult Sign To Twilight-Vertrieb

Dutch death metallers THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT have scrapped their previously announced deal with Mascot Records and have signed with Twilight-Vertrieb. The band will enter Ground Zero studio with producer Pascal Altena to begin recording its new album, "Triumvirate", tentatively due in January/February 2008. Mixing and mastering duties will be handled by Guido Aalbers.

According to a press release, "heavy speculation has commenced on several Internet forums about which image the Dutch death metal chameleons will adopt this time."

Commented vocalist/bassist Robin: "After the politically incorrect Islam-slamming NILE clones on our catastrophic debut 'The Apotheosis' and our fasco-communist warmongering on the equally disastrous second album 'The White Crematorium', we'll be shape shifting into a different image. We'll have to do some research and find out where the money is these days. I bet groups of people are already collectively clenching their assholes as we speak."

Here is the "Triumvirate" track listing:

01. Androgynous One
I. The Tempelbuilder
II. Rex Ivdaeorvm – Eater of Worlds
III. Wrath of the Double Serpent
02. Kinderreich

The Monolith Deathcult: We Are No Racists

Dutch brutal death metal band The Monolith Deathcult have issued a statement defending themselves against accusations that they are "known racists." Specificially, the band are speaking out in response to the following article posted at the Metalheads Against Racism web site by its webmaster, Mike Meier:

"The Dutch band The Monolith Deathcult is using the [Metalheads Against Racism] banner on their website. Funnily enough, there's no link to us, they've just got the banner on there. The Monolith Deathcult are known racists, I have talked to them on one of the Swiss metal message boards and made it abundantly clear what I think of them. I also know at least five people who have talked to them 'in real life' and heard them spout their racist shit. Putting the banner on their site is nothing but a hypocritical act of damage control because they're afraid nobody will book them for shows anymore now that most of the European [death metal] scene knows what a bunch of racists they are. I'm sure you'll notice they're conspicuously absent from our members list, and of course they've never contacted me about putting the banner on their site."

The Monolith Deathcult have responded to Meier's comments by issuing the following statement:

"When you write lyrics about the slaughter and killing of Christians, no one feels offended, but when you write lyrics against the radical Islam they call you a racist. That is the tolerant view of Metalheads Against Racism.

"Anyway, for the dumb, ignorant and radical left; Here we go again....

"We of The Monolith Deathcult are fully aware that certain historically accurate matters are quite sensitive in some countries.

"The Monolith Deathcult is NOT a political band. We distinguish between race and religion. We know that most people are too retarded to take a good look at our lyrics, but we refuse to lyrically adapt and limit ourselves to suit the IQ of the contemporary metal fan.

"The Monolith Deathcult treats historical happenings as they occured throughout the ages. Sometimes it happens that a topic is treated which certain people rather would not be reminded about because of the heinous deeds of their forefathers."

The Monolith Deathcult will release their sophomore album, "The White Crematorium", on January 24, 2005 through Karmageddon Media. The band, who recently announced the addition of touring member Carsten Altena to the group's ranks, released their debut album, "The Apotheosis", in 2002 through Cold Blood Industries. The band have previously toured Europe with the likes of The Crown and Skinless.
