“whatever they've been doing in their downtime has clearly made them come back stronger than ever. Organic instrumentation that often bring up Jaga Jazzist or Tortoise...they do not put a foot wrong on Monomyth.”

Dan Slessor - Outburn #52

“Monomyth is easily the band's finest album. Monomyth seethes with a subtle agony that is blissful to hear. 4 stars”

“The Trio has managed to take its misfortunes and turn them into something beautiful. Opening track “Magnetic North” is dark and hypnotic, slowly brewing into distorted chaos that lives up to the album’s title, a reference to the mythical narrative of “the hero’s journey.””

“Here I thought I lost my faith in truly loud rock. Here I thought I was doomed forever to the realm of indie pop. Fin Fang Foom proves that even with amps cranked to eleven, loud rock can be a beautiful thing.”

“Neither do they follow any kind of recognizable formula – certainly not the one that post-rock has become known for i.e. a slow build into a thundering climax. There are as many moments of bruising heaviness here as there are softer moments. 8.6”

“In the world we live in there is a great abundance of music; from the kind that will put you to a silent sleep and comfortable slumber to the type that will rip your face off. Monomyth, the newest album from dreamy post-rockers Fin Fang Foom, is liable to do both if you give it a chance.”

“Monomyth thrives on such survivalist moments. "Exploding Coast" adds an Isis-like metallic tenacity "Deathless," chiming guitar notes and a circular rhythm section gradually creating a morass of distorted tone and saturated space. Just at the point of tedium, they leap from the mess, twice as heavy.”

“The new record probably won't put them on Oprah's couch, but it's an album that deserves some attention. "Monomyth" straddles the space between ambient and adrenaline-charged rock.”

“Imagine future-war battlefields of a dead moon, the Gothic American South of the 1890s, Paris Hilton’s bedroom… all places of immense pain and weariness. This is one band that a description fails to due justice. Faith No More’s “Ricochet” filtered through Joy Division’s “Atmosphere”.”

"Brutal intensity with delicate emotionality, primal fury with existential angst, vigorously adventurous rhythms with guitar lines so strung-out they seem like they haven't slept for days and that's the razors edge the band navigates." - The Daily Tar Heel
