Empress Rising – Monolord
Condition: Brand New
Sweden's psychedelic-doom band Monolord released their first album "Empress Rising" on Easy Rider Records in April 2014. The five-song album has a duration of almost 50 minutes. With heavy guitar riffs and rhythm they call the Nordic gods at the highest volume. But Monolord is definitely a band that not only hits the heart of the doom metal fanatic. Friends of guitar rock'n'roll and stoner rock are also convinced of their sound
"Empress Rising" is loaded with everything an iconic Doom album needs, so it can be called in the same breath as Pallbearer's "Sorrow and Extinction", Electric Wizards "Witchcult Today" and Sleep Holy Mountain. It is characterized by melodic singing and harmonies and despite its psychedelic sound it manages to animate to sing along.
