Hailing from Long Island NY, Monolith Zero is one of the most refreshing progressive metal acts in the scene today. Taking cues from artists like the Devin Townsend Project, Strapping Young Lad, Behemoth, and Avenged Sevenfold, Monolith is rich, full, and rooted in existentiality - a veritable wall of sound sure to create an emotional experience for any listener. Touching on both the beautiful and the brutal, Monolith pushes the boundaries of what heavy music can become. Monolith Zero formed in 2015 and since its inception, the band has been relentlessly pursuing honest self expression - and now are seeking to redefine the way modern music is experienced with their debut full-length album, The Great Calm. As of 2020, the lineup consists of founder Nick Eustaquio (guitar, vocals), Brandon Sussman (bass), Ian Dubson (drums), Mike Rance (guitar), and Daniel Degeorges (guitar, keyboards).
