Monolord, music circuit over the last several years, return with their enthusiastically-awaited fifth album, “Your Time To Shine”, on October 29th via Relapse Records.
Today, Monolord shares the second single “I’ll Be Damned” which was recorded in drummer Esben Willems’ newly founded recording space, Studio Berserk. Listen to “I’ll Be Damned” here.
Never ones to shy away from sharp social commentary, whether it’s about the global climate crisis, the destructive nature of religion, or the isolation endured during the pandemic, Willems says of the new collection:
“To me, it’s an honest representation of how I feel about the current state of humanity.”
Musically, the album sees the Swedish trio cultivating the elements that take their monstrous, heavy riffing to new heights with a darker edge. A five-track journey that spans across crushing doom rock to more spacey, groove laden opuses, Your Time to Shine is Monolord at their most unfiltered and focused.
