Monolord Streaming New Album “No Comfort”

Monolord are streaming their new album “No Comfort” in full via Kerrang!. That effort will be released on September 20. Tomas Jäger said the following about the album:

“It’s more emotional than the others. There are lyrics about disease—we’ve had relatives with cancer and things like this—and when you think you’re done with one crisis, the next one comes along. So sometimes you feel there’s no comfort left. Anyone going through a rough time can relate, I think.”

“We’re thrilled to work with the brilliantly talented Björn Rallare on this video. He’s aced the difficult challenge of capturing the post-apocalyptic and apathetic atmosphere of the song. Hope you like it as much as we do.”
