Doomed Nation

Sounds For The Lost Generation

Monolord return with the brand new single »I’m Staying Home«, available on 12″ vinyl via Relapse Records

Swedish doom metal trio Monolord return with the two track single »I’m Staying Home«. Recorded during the »No Comfort« album sessions, »I’m Staying Home« sees the band harnessing the power of the riff once again with their trademark take on crushing sludge rock and doom!

Mixed and mastered by Monolord drummer Esben Willems, the single features the eponymous new track alongside an exclusive live recording of the »No Comfort« lead single »The Bastard Son«, captured at Freak Valley Festival in 2019.

»I’m Staying Home« will be also available in physical format as 12″ vinyl, set to release on February 5, 2021.

02. The Bastard Son (Live)

Formed in Gothenburg in 2013, Monolord quickly burst onto the scene releasing three critically-acclaimed full-lengths in a four year span (»Empress Rising«, »Vænir« and »Rust«) on RidingEasy Records all while touring relentlessly around the globe. Monolord is a rare breed: A band both encompassing and transcending genre; a vortex of heavy rock density that consumes all others. The band’s enveloping, syrupy sludge is a state of mind, with guitarist/vocalist Thomas Jäger, drummer Esben Willems and bassist Mika Häkki create a massive, dynamic sound with ultra-low frequencies serving as its fourth member. In 2019, Monolord signed to Relapse Records and released their label debut full-length »No Comfort«.
