Actual fucking headache. By far the most disorganized and frustrating drone metal album I've ever listened to.

Monoliths and Dimensions truly is just that- monolithic. This is one of those albums that is just so earth-shattering,every note feels in the right place, and I genuinely felt like I was high in the woods late at night whilst listening to it (to put that into perspective, I was actually sat in my room waiting for a parcel). The only major complaint I have is that some sections drag a little, but even that's just personal preference and nothing objective.

this is what i was looking for when i listened to black one for the first time. heavy, dark, and destructive beats with some of the most frightening vocals from Attila. Definitely an album i will be going back to, and one that is a real masterpiece in the drone genre. This is a soundtrack for the apocalypse, which is exactly what i feel like i'm going through when listening to this album (in the best of ways).

Everything I loved about Sunn O))) up to this point mixed into this 4 track project amazingly! When I have the time to revisit this, I immediately do so.
