Gothenburg, Sweden trio Monolord is a rare breed: a band both encompassing and transcending genre; a vortex of heavy rock density that consumes all others. Their thunderous, tuneful heft has built a rabid international fanbase in short order since their 2014 debut. But 'Rust', the band's third full length, truly exemplifies why some refer to them as the Nirvana of doom. Monolord's enveloping, syrupy sludge is a vibe, it's a state of mind. Not riffs for riffs sake, but a collective buzzing, rattling and rumbling thats more total environment than collection of songs. Together, guitarist/vocalist Thomas Jger, drummer Esben Willems and bassist Mika Häkki create a massive, dynamic sound with ultra-low frequencies serving as its fourth member.
