Track Premiere: Monolord – Empress Rising

Roadburn is very excited to unveil the first single ‘Empress Rising’ from Monolord.

Monolord, the latest band to spring from the loins of Sweden’s bourgeoning psychedelic doom scene, just signed with EasyRider Records. This is exciting for a number of reasons; mainly, of course, that their music will be readily available in physical and digital form for our eager ears come April 1st. These guys play some seriously heavy stoner-infused doom tinged with hypnotic, hair-tossing riffs that do justice equally to Sleep and their modern, underground successors and boast enough thunderous low-end to rumble loosen up yesterday’s dinner.

The forthcoming LP, Empress Rising, has been announced as a five-track, 50-minute long opus in the vein of Pallbearer’s Sorrow And Extinction and Electric Wizard’s Witchcult Today, and if this new single, “Empress Rising,” is any indicator, the album will have us all running for record stores with the fury of the Norse gods.
