Posted by AP on 26/07/16

Head over to Metal Injection for an exclusive premiere of a brand new Monolord track dubbed ”Die in Haze”. It is the b-side from the Swedish stoner-doom trio’s upcoming 10” single, which also features the song ”Lord of Suffering”.

Monolord is about to embark on a tour of the U.S. early next month, but given the band’s close proximity to Denmark and the frequency of their previous visits here, we’d wager that Danish fans, too, will be able to hear the two songs live in the near future.
