Trance Monolith is a five-piece progressive metal band hailing from the Midwest.  They strive to create impactful stories with their brand of soaring melodies, gripping soundscapes, and technical guitar and drum work. Writing for the band began in 2017 with the idea of making music that was both unique, but powerful. On November 9th 2019, Trance Monolith released their first self titled debut album. 

In lieu of their three recent singles: Ignite, Towers and Mezziah. Trance Monolith is hard at work on a Full Length Sophomore release.  The story takes heavy inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft's Cryptic and Elegant Sci-Fi Horror works. As well as, inspired by 80s Sci-Fi Masterpieces: Blade Runner, Terminator and Tron. Every song is carefully put together sonically and lyrically to create a world the audience will not want to leave nor forget.
