MONOLORD: Vaenir: LP

May 31, 2017

Absolutely every fan of Sleep or Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats needs to add this record to their collection. It provides all the heaviness your doomful heart desires, interlaced with warbly psychedelia to keep it interesting. Monolord is a highly underrecognized stoner metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, formed in 2013. Vaenir, their sophomore album, exists as one cohesive unit, although the standout track is “Died a Million Times”—I once listened to it on a plane while taking off (optimistic, right?). The track features a breakdown in which an electronic guitar appears to be talking back and forth to another, or perhaps echoing itself, punctuated by a face-melting drop. This whole album is a gift to the sludge world, so go ahead and treat yourself. –Michelle Kirk (RidingEasy, [email protected], ridingeasyrecs.com)
