We are deeply saddened to report the loss of our band member, friend and brother Kevin McDade in a car accident early Friday evening. Needless to say we are absolutely devastated by this. Our hearts and thoughts go out to his parents, family and girlfriend.
Thanks for the time we had and the music we made together. We will, and already do, miss you terribly.

"Behold! The Monolith have really outdone themselves with this one. I always knew this band was good but I didn't expect this. 'Defender, Redeemist' is my first favorite album of 2012. It is a flawless album that should push the band to the next level of popularity. Killer stuff...........10/10." -Doommantia.com
"This is one bad-ass, maniacal, beast of a record that should put this band on the fast track to subgenre dominance and larger stages to hold their chaos." -MeatMeadMetal
"...eight tracks of bullish, doomy Metal." - Guitar World
"If a bong-ripping demon rose from the fiery underworld to impregnate Motörhead, their resulting hellish lovechild would undoubtedly be Behold! The Monoloth." -CVLT NATION
"...the band is at its most heinous, laying down an ageless, soul-sucking black metal doom that ebbs, flows, and screams in myriad glorious ways....Defender, Redeemist is one hell of a monster on so many different levels." - BrokenBeard.com
"Defender, Redeemist is one of those rare albums where saying “holy fuck” truly conveys the feeling behind the album..." -PopDose.com
"Defender, Redeemist builds on the cement foundation of Sleep and Electric Wizard while using lumber coated with Mastodon and Baroness. The reinforced finished product, however, is pure B!TM" -TheNewReview.net
