Monolord is a Swedish doom metal band from Göteborg, founded in 2013. Since their beginnings, their three-man lineup has been unchanged; guitarist-vocalist Thomas V Jäger, drummer Esben Willems, and bassist Mika Häkki. Monolord would gain a significant following in quick order following the critically praised ‘Empress Rising’ (2014) and ‘Vænir’ (2015), displaying a distinctive mark on the doom genre with their blend of heavy, droning riffs and ghostlike vocals.
Monolord would establish itself as a major name in the doom genre in the 2010s, further solidifying that title with following albums in ‘Rust’ (2017) and ‘No Comfort’ (2019), touring all over the world and performing amid many marquee bands and festivals.
Monolord is currently on tour in support of their 2021 album, ‘Your Time To Shine.’ The Chicago Reader, upon the album’s release, said: “…Your Time to Shine makes another case for Monolord as one of the best power trios going, and its musical and thematic heaviness provide much-needed catharsis and respite in a chaotic world.”
