Formed in Gothenburg in 2013, Monolord quickly burst onto the scene releasing three critically-acclaimed full-lengths in a four year span (Empress Rising, Vænir and Rust) on RidingEasy Records all while touring relentlessly around the globe. The band made their Relapse Records debut, unveiling the transcendent No Comfort in late 2019. 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. With their newest Relapse release Your Time To Shine out now, it's a pleasure to welcome the guys to their first Gimme DJ session.
