    "A few months after the release of the highly acclaimed "Epsilon Aurigae", the French Cosmic Doom Masters, Monolithe, are about to release the second part of this ambitious project. Entitled "Zeta Reticuli", this colossal new opus contains 3 long, powerful and epic compositions :

    1. Ecumenopolis
    2. TMA-1
    3. The Barren Depths

    "Zeta Reticuli", probably the magnum opus of this incredibly unique and talented band, expands the definition of Doom Metal in a grandiose refinement and reinvention of MONOLITHE’s history.

    As usual the conceptual artwork has been realized by Norwegian Artist Robert Høyem (Overhaus).

    This much awaited new masterpiece will be released on July 8th by Debemur Morti Productions on Digipack CD and Digital.

Track Name: Ecumenopolis
Arcological structures upsurging
Conurbation of oppidan fauna
All land has been ingested
Tentacular megacities originate
Coalesced in a monolithic town
Planet scale expended architecture
Grounds binding in asphalt
Down - up - everywhere
The building never ends
Underwater suburbs crowded
Orbital stations run out of space
Above a creature of huddled masses
That would never ever sleep
Tubes transfuse connected areas
This world is one
Amalgam of a single quantum
Cyclopean ekistic metroplex
A sphere shining like a sun
Thickly populated megalopolis
Industrial nature of steel and cement
Within the skyscraping urban monads
The core is the whole
Track Name: The Barren Depths
Companionless ship navigates through ether
Forlorn artifact floating upon the deep
Soaked in waves of desolation
Lone, it has long been forgotten

Directionless shape drifting away
Vagabond beyond the depths of space

Along the bounds of universe
Sliding further in the oblivious tides
Moving black dot within the void
Forever, pitch-black all over

Roaming in a tenebrous emptiness
Solitary journey in nothingness
Isolated in darkness
Traces of sentience on a blank infinity
Eternally sinking in the hollow sea

Along the bounds of universe
Sliding further in the oblivious tides
Moving black dot within the void
Forever, pitch-black all over

Directionless shape drifting away
Vagabond beyond the depths of space
