Monolord are a band from Sweden that plays a mixture of stoner and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Rust" which will be released on September 29th by RidingEasy.
A very hard and heavy stoner rock sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful while the riffing also mixes in the heaviness of doom metal and the vocals are done in a clean singing style as well as some clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording.
A decent amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing while the music makes a style that has its roots in the 70's have a more modern feeling and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic fashion.
As the album progresses a brief use of psychedelic sounding organs can be heard briefly while one of the tracks is an instrumental along with all of the songs sticking to a very slow musical direction and the closing track acoustic guitars are also utilized briefly for a few minutes.
Monolord plays a musical style that mixes stoner and doom metal together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover evil, horror and supernatural themes.
In my opinion Monolord are a very great sounding mixture of stoner and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dear Lucifer" and "Forgotten Lands". 8 out of 10.
