Antimonument are an anonymous/depersonalized convergent multidisciplinary art/music collective hailing from Brazil, first emerging in 2021 with their cryptic debut album "Concealment".
Their music is A degenerative deconstruction and recombination of styles aimed at fusing certain currents of extreme music, counterbalanced by thought provoking visuals, to a create a singular new stream of consciousness and redesign a new sensorial map to mankind’s destructive nature, underlining the horrors of reality that dwell in the psyche and within the plain of human nature.
Black and death metal, grindcore, hardcore punk, industrial noise, power electronics and no-wave/post punk are thus amalgamated in a consciousness expanding audio-visual ritual aimed at establishing a new symbolism to the negativity that permeates the world and to facing the listener with its own emptiness and nothingness within the void of their surroundings.
AWill Killingsworthntimonument's debut album “Concealment" features complementary artwork by Brazilian artist Rudimentary Light, and was first revealed in the Brazilian underground via local dealers Cianeto Records as a limited edition CD-R.
The album instantly gained attention abroad and was soon picked up for a tape release by Red Door Records in the US. This is when Sentient Ruin also noticed the unique juxtaposition of transformative visuals and daring experimental black/death metal proposed by the band, and offered Antimonument a worldwide first ever vinyl edition of the album along with a cassette reissue, both with revisited/expanded artwork, two bonus tracks, and brand new mastering by at Dead Air Studios.
