Biography

1) Monolithic is a synthpop band on the A Different Drum label. Although Monolithic is categorized in the synthpop genre, the infusion of many other sub-genres of electronic music make Monolithic’s music distinctive in the synthpop scene. Genres such as breakbeat, trance, ebm, techno, industrial, and downtempo can be found in the music of Monolithic. The music of Monolithic can be described as “intense”, “meaningful”, “emotional”, and “powerful”. Midihead is the sole mastermind behind the band, and can be found in the credits of music for remixes, TV, and motion picture trailers.

In January 2006, Midihead announced that he was canceling his then-upcoming Monolithic album Evil Behind Smiling Eyes to focus on other projects. The limited pre-release collection of MP3-format tracks remains available on the official site.

Mike Babbitt a.k.a. “Midihead” has released two CDs and some additional songs under the name Monolithic. A few Monolithic songs have been featured in Konami’s Dance Dance Revolution games. Several tracks can be downloaded from the official site, www.midihead.com.


2) Monolithic is the name of an improvisational extreme metal duo from Trondheim, Norway. The bandmembers are Stian Westerhus (known from bands like Jaga Jazzist, Puma and Bladed) on baritone guitar and Kenneth Kapstad (Motorpsycho, Gåte and Animal Alpha) on drums. Their first album, Black Science, was released in March 2009.

3) Monolithic is the name of a drone/doom metal band from the United States, formed in 2012.

    Wow, didn't know this existed. Kenneth Kapstad must be one of the best drummers I saw on stage.

    People should vote up their "Black Science" picture instead of the current.. this band is a monster!

    I edited the description from "black" to "extreme", as Monolithic in no way plays black metal... Great stuff though! Seen them live twice, and booth blew me away. Hearing them on record doesn`t come close to that, even though Black Science is a great record.

    If you're reading this and unfamiliar with Monolithic, I highly recommend that you go to Midihead.com and download the song "Wraith." It's excellent.
