Official press release:
Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Swedish trio Monolord. Formed in Gothenburg in 2013, Monolord quickly burst onto the scene releasing three critically-acclaimed full-lengths in a four-year span 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. Monolord’s yet-to-be-titled fourth studio album is expected to be released in late 2019. Stay tuned for more information.
Monolord comment on the signing:
“Stoked about this! Working with people who are driven by the passion for music above anything else has always been key for us. The fine music lovers at Relapse are just the kind of passionate people we want to spread the decibel gospel with and we feel confident that this is gonna be a very sweet ride together.”
