Monotheist: (Progressive Metal from Florida, Prosthetic Recs)
Formed in 2004, this Orlando, Florida band has been carefully crafting their unique brand of progressive death metal for over a decade. Beginning with 2007’s Unforsaken (rereleased and remastered in 2012), Michael “Prophet” Moore gathered a set of musicians in vocalists Jake Rice and Elyssa Coultas to help his eclectic vision come to life. Filled to the brim with youthful vigor and a sense of adventure, Unforsaken introduced the world to a band who sought to mix the brutality of Suffocation, the melodic sensibilities of Extol, and the earnest riffing of Death (another Orlando-bred band), with the beautiful, somber meanderings of bands like Opeth, while being influenced by classical and jazz music.
