Tales from Bandcamp: Vænir by Monolord

a3503731580_10Picture if you will a scene where an army of Dr. Dooms wielding Swords of Doom +2 agility are battling a horde of Thulsa Dooms brandishing Bastard Axes of Doom +1 charisma atop Mt. Doom for the right to doom the doomed Earth and it’s doomed inhabitants.  That is pretty much the way it is when spinning the Vænir, the new record from Swedish doomsters Monolord.

Sounding like a mix of Yob, Pallbearer, and good ol’ Candlemass this record is relentless in its approach to doom.  The sludgy tones mixed with mammoth riffs will probably make this one of the most crushing doom records I will hear this year.  I particularly like the reverb-y vocals which add in heavy psychedelic elements.

If you like your doom metal filthy and thicker than frozen peanut butter do yourself a favor and grab this beast.  You won’t be disappointed, Scouts Honor.  Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!
