Gothenburg Doomsters Monolord have had quite the year in 2017 with their recently released third album ‘Rust’ receiving universal praise in reviews, and landing atop on multiple Album of The Year lists – including the #1 Album of 2017 on the Doom Charts. They have built up a rabid international fanbase in short order since their 2014 debut Empress Rising. Truly exemplifying why some refer to them as the Nirvana of doom. Monolord are a rare breed, encompassing and transcending the genre with an unstoppable force both on record and on stage. Now, we are to witness the trio take to the stage as special guests supporting famed Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society in March and April. See for yourself why critics are raving about this band. Full tour dates below.
