Monads was officially born in January 2011, but the band had been in the works for 2-3 years before that. The plan was to bring funeral death/doom metal in a fierce and crushing way, far from the romantic death/doom scene. With talented, experienced and devoted musicians.... the 'pentad' was complete and immediately started writing and rehearsing. August 2011 saw the recordings of a 54 minute demo, which was released on 50 tapes in September by the band. Though 'Intellectus Iudicat Veritatem' was officially presented as a demo, it is nothing short of a stunning debut album. Moreover, the band proved several times that they are at least as impressive when bringing their music live. In just over a year after the demo, they had shared the stage with bands such as Lifelover, IXXI, Cult of Erinyes, Ondskapt, The One, Somrak, Black Oath, Castle and Verdunkeln.
After some years, performances and recruiting a new guitar player, the band set out to finish the album they had started writing almost immediately after the recording of the demo. Still taking two years to finish, the band put every bit of focus in perfecting this album to what it should be. Now, that album is ready to be unleashed.
It's clear that Monads have become one of the best acts in doom, following up the high expectations after their debut. Expect nothing less than absolutely crushing funeral death/doom metal, with a wide range of influences including death metal, black metal and post-rock.
