MONOLORD, “the towering doom trio that’s torn its way through the international heavy-music circuit over the last several years” (Bandcamp), return with their fifth album, Your Time To Shine, on Oct. 29 via Relapse Records.

A preview of the 5-song, 39-minute collection, which was recorded by drummer Esben Willems in his newly founded recording space, Studio Beserk, arrives today via the soaring, fist-raising album opener, “The Weary” which you can check out on KNAC.COM HERE. “"The Weary" is us telling a story to future generations that we are sorry but we fucked it all up,” explains guitar player Thomas Jäger.

Never ones to shy away from sharp social commentary, whether it’s about the global climate crisis, the destructive nature of religion, or the isolation endured during the pandemic, Willems says of the new collection: “To me, it’s an honest representation of how I feel about the current state of humanity.”

Musically, the album sees the Swedish trio cultivating the elements that take their monstrous, heavy riffing to new heights with a darker edge. A five-track journey that spans across crushing doom rock to more spacey, groove laden opuses, Your Time To Shine is MONOLORD at their most unfiltered and focused.

  • "The Weary"
  • "To Each Their Own"
