Swedish Heavy Rockers Monolord have announced the arrival of their fifth album, Your Time To Shine, on Oct. 29th via Relapse Records. A preview of the 5-song, 39-minute collection, which was recorded by drummer Esben Willems in his newly founded recording space, Studio Beserk, has arrived in the form of the album opener track and video for, “The Weary”.
Guitarist Thomas Jäger explains:
“’The Weary’ is us telling a story to future generations that we are sorry but we fucked it all up.”
The new album comes with Monolord’s accustomed mode of social commentary, addressing “the global climate crisis, the destructive nature of religion, and the isolation endured during the pandemic.”
Musically, the album proposes “a darker edge” to Monolord’s heavy riffing. A European and North American tour in 2022 will bring us a chance to experience Your Time To Shine live.
