Jay Doom This album is so goddamn good! I was raving about it last year and am still listening to it now. A fantastic mixture of monolithic riffs and shouted rage vs a profound sadness in both the music and vocals. A pure classic right out of the gate. I can’t wait for more.

Jose Garcia From endless rage of doom with tracks like Lotus and Maelstrom, to their atmospheric feel of despair from Death Process & Solace, RIPIS provides different aspects and emotions straight in your face without remorse with their debut album, Monolith. Favorite track: Solace.

FDJ Monolithic grooves of heaviness laid down thick, low and nasty beneath a mixture of growled and mournfully clean vocal tones Favorite track: Wanderer.

Steve Rodger When I was a kid they used to say everything is bigger in Texas and when it comes to swaggering sludge doom riffs it seems it still is, love this !! Favorite track: Maelstrom.

Wanderer 09:09
Bridge of fire Buried in smoke Forsaken pyre Bloodthirsted warlord Condemned and broken Written in the tome White bones scattered Earthbound and alone Alone, afraid The Earth is caving in
2.
Lotus 07:32
Alone, the word rings Palms to earth tremble below Broken, nothing left Surroundings unchanged Yet unwelcome fear dwells Resonates Afraid, the word rings Violence unending, deep within Unknown, shadowed beings Unwavering landscape Vile prison Crushing despair
3.
Monolith 10:30
Swelling Earth, droning beneath Atmosphere collapsing, windswept heath Nature burning, drowned in ash Ghost of fire, bury life Feral dread Plagued with death Dread unending Omega Labor onward, dull my head Broken Man, hollow shell Loss of sight, grey beyond It feeds on light Death process Rising horizon Barrier, monolith
4.
Broken man, tattered limbs Nothing lives in this place anymore Sunken eyes, battered skin Is there hope to escape this dead earth Hollow shell, shattered soul Falling further and drowning within Splintered wood, burning dust Everything has gone and I am left Buried sun, dark barrow Washed up on a sea of death’s toll Sinking void, reaching out Falling further and drowning within Falling into the abyss I fought with hands and teeth clenched What was once bliss is only pain and torment
5.
Maelstrom 09:35
This dark hour, futile sow Embers light the sky aflame Blackness bleeds below This dark tower, death bringer To smite the fire in its sleep Weary withered core Is there end to pain? Plains of ruin, heavy clouds Loom among the spires peak Crushing callous weight Wield the will Nature's fury To face the fire in its keep Perish empty pour Is there end to pain?
6.
Torpor 11:58
Dead earth, cauldron of hate Bleak path, bane of doom Mountain, the pillar of flame Ruthless, gut monolith Expel dread, defy the thought Peaks of death meet the sky Corpse dust, heavy breath Blood-soaked trails guide the path Peaks of death meet the sky Inner rage guides the slog Dead earth, cauldron of hate Bleak path, bane of doom Mountain, the pillar of flame Ruthless, gut monolith
7.
Solace 08:58
Last breath, laid to rest Born and buried in the earth’s embrace Mountain, bones to ash Mountain, one with the earth Mountain, Bringer of Death Mountain, Bringer of Peace
