Monolord

Formed in 2013 and quickly debuting a year later with Empress Rising, Gothenburg's doom/stoner trio Monolord know how to bring the heaviness to the fore. Prime Sleep might be the best reference point, with monstrous slow meaty riffs, and the distant, clean yet slightly distorted vocals are a nice touch, a hardcore roar would have dulled the overall effect. Yet, with five 7-plus minute songs each mostly featuring a single riff repeated endlessly, things get a bit one-dimensional. Still, the foundation is there for something special.

Recent album: No Comfort, released on September 20, 2019.
