Traversing the absolute – Monad is a testament to suffering. Heavy grinding riffs and deep pulsating rythms; a restless stirring. Amidst all these layers we hear the human voice as a primal wordless scream – the shock of being. We feel the dissonance of forces vying for existence and the harmony of lightless oblivion. Whispers of unfathomable truths emerge from the static.
Farer presents a tactile experience of the grim and brutal cycle of creation and destruction. There is desperation and anger, but above all a greater comprehension of the eternal patterns reverberating through flesh. The relentless driving layers of crushed sound offer no respite. In resonance is the movement of great mass. The vocals are brutally honest and raw. Complex and utterly bleak. A confrontation with the void.
Out of nothing, nothing becomes.

The guitar tone and fullness of the mix is unbearably heavy and punishing. The pulsing nature creates the swarming atmosphere of guilt and despair. One of the best albums I’ve heard in awhile Will Brown
This is gorgeous death/doom which fits the World War I theme perfectly!
The aggressive death metal parts symbolize the crushing brutality of the Great War, while the doom metal passages stand for the quiet desperation of the trenches, there are also some movies sample sprinkled in which makes the album a real experience. Markus Schmidt
