MONOLORD SET FOR MONOLITHICDESERTFESTAPPEARANCE!
In the brief five years of their existence Gothenburg 3-piece Monolord ascended to the upper echelons of stoner-doom royalty remarkably quickly, and if you’re familiar with them already you’ll need no explanation as to why. After three consistently excellent LPs, these busy lads have proven themselves to be Monolithic Lords of fuzzed-out doom par excellence, and fans of the likes of Electric Wizard and Ufomammut immediately accepted them as equals in every respect.
Mika Häkki underpins their behemoth compositions with thick, roiling bass lines while drummer Esben Willems meters out the slow burning intensity and guitarist Thomas V Jäger provides the gargantuan riffs with his other-worldly vocals. Their tight interplay is a perfect example of how three-pieces can lock in so well together, as they transport you to distant realms of darkness in a trance-like state.
Having previously graced Desertfest London's stage in 2016, we are honoured to announce that Monolord have slotted-in another Camden appearance, during the UK tour they have planned with the mighty Conan, and we fully expect to see every one of you nodding your heads into hypnotised submission at the front this year!
