Enshrined Gitarrist und Sänger Josh Middleton sagt zum kommenden Album: "Monolith is the best representation of us as a band in terms of our diverse influences, and stylistically it's what we've always been aiming for. A mixture of thrash, big doomy riffs and dark atmospherics and ambience. The idea for the concept was very loosely inspired by the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. It's quite far-fetched but it's about this guy who loses his wife and tries to bring her back from underworld. This giant monolith starts to grow out of her tomb. The most prevalent theme beneath it all is sort of accepting that you might not be as nice a person as you once thought. It sounds really cheesy but everyone has a darker side to their personality in terms of being selfish, manipulative or dishonest.” “Monolith” wird am 5. Oktober 2012 via Nuclear Blast veröffentlicht.
