Monarch "Omens"

Here is the first advance for brand new Monarch album, "Omens". Monarch has got to be one of the most heavy and punishing doom bands hailing from Europe. Leaded by the gorgeous Emilie Bresson, no one could ever imagine that behind that pretty face hides one of the most tortured and hideous (read that as in a good way) voice of the doom scene. Featuring now Dark Castle drummer Rob Shaffer, "Omens" is based on three tracks only, which culminates in about 30 minutes of dark ritualistic atmosphere. But unlike their previous efforts, "Omens" pushes over that boundary of those long feedbacks riffs layered with screaming vocals where a lung, or both, are about to collapse. Not that the tortured screams and shrieks are gone, no, they are still there but in another dimension of true horror. It will be out on the 28th of this month so be sure to grab a copy here. Now, turn off the light, light up a candle, put "Omens" on and worship the Goat.
