The tour will see the band’s continued support for their acclaimed 2017 RidingEasy Records release, “Rust“. The album has garnered universal praise and numerous accolades, including #1 Album Of The Year 2017 at Doom Charts (both Leanne and I contribute to the monthly chart). We are including the Bandcamp embed of “Rust” for streaming here, just in case you’ve somehow missed it.
MONOLORD‘s syrupy, groove-dense sludge and rumbling doom emissions are thunderous and enthralling. Guitarist / vocalist Thomas Jäger, drummer Esben Willems and bassist Mika Häkki create a massive, dynamic sound with ultra-low frequencies. If you have the opportunity to witness them doing such in the live setting, then do so or you may have to punish yourself later.
