Phobos Monolith is a Cosmic Melodic Death Metal band that was started in 2018 by guitarist and primary song writer Pedro Vela in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo, Tamulipas. Together with Victor Tellez and Willy Tovar on drums and lead guitar respectively, they pieced together a live band that draws influences from 90’s era melodic death doom metal. With the recruitment of Eliseo Lara on bass and vocal duty the lineup became a complete unit.
Phobos Monolith combines all of the vast musical elements that are reminiscent of bands such as Amorphis, Tiamat, Katatonia, Anathema, Edge of Sanity, Paradise Lost and many more, while the lyrical themes explore the natural phenomena of space-time and the multiverse through a collection of existentialist introspection.
