Monuments Review: Zero Tolerance Magazine

Given the quality of Rivelin, it’s surprising to find that Monuments is another self-release. That said, you wouldn’t know it- like Rivelin, this is a mature, beautifully-packaged and -recorded piece of work. Monuments is a dizzying blend of folk, rock and (not very black) metal in an occasionally Eluveitie-like way. Possibly the worst thing about Monuments is it’s almost unceasing richness and depth of sound; after a while, the listener is so swamped with layers of guitar, bass, flutes, keyboards and rasping vocals that the bare, minimalistic interludes are an incredibly soothing relief. 4/6.
