Monolord - Your Time to Shine LPRelapse Records
Limited green colored vinyl LP pressing. Swedish power trio Monolord return with their highly anticipated new album, Your Time to Shine. Recorded by drummer Esben Willems at Studio Berserk, Your Time to Shine sees the trio looking inward, 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. Out of the gate, Monolord kick-off a wild ride with the soaring, fist-raising opener "The Weary" and it's insanely catchy melodies. Elsewhere, the stop/start switch between sweetness and abrasiveness of "To Each Their Own" showcases a new element to the band's repertoire. Monolord embraces the power of the riff with pulsating chugs on "I'll Be Damned" and the mind-expanding title-track, whose final section brings back some of the band's spaced-out rock n' roll beginnings.
