“Remember that time you drove your battered old VW out into the woods, took an unfeasible amount of peyote and listened to nothing but Sleep, Ufomammut and YOB for four days straight? No? Well, this record is going to trigger one hell of a flashback.”

“What did I just fucking listen to? The answer is simple. Your favourite new Doom Metal Band. The name is Monolord. Empress Rising is going to be one of 2014’s landmark Doom Metal Debut albums. Ignore this if you dare.”
The Sludgelord

“As I’m typing this I’m on my third straight listen. And by the end of this week I will be on my tenth listen probably […] I love music, I love heavy doom and what I love most of all is getting blown away by a band with a release I had never heard before and Monolord just did that to me. It is an impressive feat considering the vast output of amazing heavy music that gets released these days.”
Echoes and Dust

“I remember hearing Sleep’s ‘Jerusalem’ (it wasn’t re-released as Dopesmoker yet) and Electric Wizard’s ‘Dopethrone’ years ago and being completely blown away by the sheer heaviness of both those albums. A whole scene of heavy stoner doom arose, but none came close to the heavy groove of these two gods. I think that with Monolord, stoner doom no longer has two gods but a holy trinity.”
The Sleeping Shaman

“Monolord’s sound has a crazy cosmic vibe to it that propels your imagination into a realm of otherworldly riffs.” CVLT Nation “Empress Rising is a sonic masterpiece of crushing doom.”
