Amebix’s “Monolith” Being Re-Released In North America

“Monolith” by Amebix is one of those records that many have heard “of” but have never actually “heard.” Now thirty years old, it’s a record that still remains largely unmasked. Dissonance Productions looks to change that with the North American re-introduction to one of crust punk’s most prolific albums on June 30th.

Scene Point Blank calls it “essential” and The Obelisk refers to it as “legendary and massively influential.” Originally released in 1987, the second album from Amebix is an urgent and ugly album that drew both immediate praise and scorn.

It ultimately would be the last recording by the band for more than 20 years; founder Rob Baron Miller with brother Chris Stig Miller, and Spider splitting up shortly after the album’s release.
