The Black Monolith was formed by Damien Ng (formerly Bhelliom, Truth Be Known) in 2014. Shortly after leaving Bhelliom in 2011, Damien Ng wrote the materials for the album. However, due to personal issues and other commitments, the project was put on hold. In March 2014 Damien Ng decided to rewrite and fine tune the materials. It was around the same time that he got in touch with Jason Cruz (Withered Tree/PLATE), a seasoned Rock/Pop/Blues/Jazz drummer. Rehearsals between the two soon began and 9 songs were finalized within 2 months. Damien Tan was hired to fill in the bass duties and after a long tiring search. And together with the help of friends, Damien Ng got in touch with Zed Tan (NUS CAC Amplified), to be the singer and lyricist, and the proverbial final piece of the puzzle. The Black Monolith is now complete. By the end of four rehearsals , Zed completed the lyrics and melody. The band entered the studio to record their debut album, which will be released in Mar/Apr 2015.
