Monomorte - The Three Mothers
Witch House Monomorte is perhaps one of the few - if not, the only - witch house project that I really enjoy who completely sticks to every single trope the genre has to offer. The reason being is that he's able to expertly produce his tracks so they sound like more than a twelve year old running simulated software on a broken ass piece of machinery. Monomorte is able to take the genre head on and produce dragging beats and spooky tunes without sacrificing quality or entertainment.

Last month on Halloween, Monomorte released a new, free EP consisting of three tracks titled "The Three Mothers". Just like his releases prior to this one, I have found it to be quite alluring like a fresh stack of pancakes with butter and syrup poured sensually all over them. 

'Inferno' reminds me of material that was on 'Ad Extemvm' from 2014, only this time around it has improved quality. So, in other words, I was extremely pleased with this track and smiled to myself as I went through it. 'My Mirrors Are Black...' is where the real creepy crawlies come out to play. The beat is rigged and rough, echoing forth demons from another plane of existence. Settling in with a nice EBM beat surrounded by the altogether ominous atmosphere of growling, whispers, and other inhuman sounds pierced all softness. The track was an altogether blast. Lastly, 'The Men' was a dark ambient/witch house crossover experiment. It wasn't heavy, but was certainly atmospheric. This is gorgeous meditative music, something that can cure headaches, and I'll be sure to add this song onto a calmer playlist. 

Again, Monomorte does stick to various tropes the witch house genre offers, such as including occultist themes and the like, but he's able to do it with such expertise and craftsmanship that it altogether becomes one of the most enjoyable witchy projects out there. All three tracks are completely different from one another, making any idea of a layover impossible. Instead, Monomorte has provided with an excellent collection of three songs which all hold his trademark sounds. "The Three Mothers" is a definitive addition to Monomorte's discography, and for the price of nothing, you've no reason not to check this out.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
