Swedish doom sludge unit Monolord have released a new track off their forthcoming album Vænir. The song, titled “We Will Burn”, went live today via CVLT Nation, you can check it out above. Monolord drummer Esben Willems comments on the track:
“‘We Will Burn’ is pure misanthropy. It deals with the disgust for what we humans do to ourselves and to our own planet. No matter how clear the results are to us, we seem to be selectively ignorant to the fact that we are a self-destructive breed and that we are digging each other’s graves. It’s not a matter of if, but when. We WILL burn and we’re heading there at blinding speed. On top of that, mentioning that fact is severely threatening to a lot of people – actually to the vast majority – so any attempt to slow down that man-made apocalypse is beaten down on, hard.”
Vænir is set for release on April 28th through RidingEasy Records. Pre-orders are currently available, with several limited edition vinyl, a variety of colored vinyl and CD packages, and digital versions up for grabs here and here.
Vænir track listing:
1. “Cursing The One”
2.”We Will Burn”
4. “Died a Million Times”
5. “The Cosmic Silence”
