Black Monolith is a Black Metal, D-Beat Crusher That Has Nothing To Do with Deafheaven, Mostly

No beauty here, only pain

Rick Ross, Tragedy, Woods, Les Savy Fav, NOFX, and now… George Clarke? The Deafheaven frontman welcomes his latest venture, All Black Recording Company, with a new release featuring a former touring member of Deafheaven. The label will release the debut LP Passenger by Black Monolith, featuring the high-octane, black-metal-meets-d-beat crusher "Gold Watch" which makes its premiere here. Don't expect textural, shoegaze-y beauty, this is all ugly and punishing. Stream "Gold Watch" for the first time below, and look for it in April.
