Monolord Streaming "We Will Burn"

Swedish trio Monolord return with "Vænir" on April 28th (RidingEasy Records), with the song “We Will Burn” streaming now below, courtesy of Cvlt Nation.

“’We Will Burn’ is pure misanthropy,” said Monolord drummer Esben Willems. “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.”

The "Vænir" track listing is as follows:

1. Cursing The One
2. We Will Burn
3. Nuclear Death
4. Died a Million Times
5. The Cosmic Silence
6. Vænir More...

Monolord was initially formed as a side project in 2013 out of the ashes of Swedish bands Marulk and Rotten Sound, featuring guitar player and vocalist Thomas Jäger, drummer Esben Willems, and bassist Mika Häkki.

Following the "Empress Rising" release, Monolord will drop new album "Vænir" via RidingEasy Records on April 28th, 2015. The label comments:

"Named after the biggest lake in Sweden, the overall effect of this eagerly awaited album can only be described as vast. Colossal in fact, with the only true metric of certainty being at forty-eight minutes long, across six epic tracks (including the recently released single ‘Cursing The One’) Vænir has the power to level everything it its path."

Monolord Releasing New Album

The new full length from Monolord is called "Vænir" (named after the biggest lake in Sweden) and is due out April 28th, 2015. Riding Easy Records comments:

"The record comes in with 6 songs over 48 mins of bone crushing mother fuckin DOOM! The song 'Cursing The One' was teased on Xmas Day, now that the record is off to press we figured y’all deserved to have 1 song from the follow up to Empress Rising.

"Vænir won’t be on the shelves until the end of April, but do not fret… you will be able to purchase a 12? single with Cursing The One on the A side and the Black Sabbath cover 'Fairies Wear Boots' that you can hear on the Cvlt Nation Paranoid comp that came out this summer." More...
