2019 Best of Metal: #5 Monolord-No Comfort

Release date:  9/20/2019

Origin:  Gothenburg, Sweden

Personnel:  Thomas V. Jager-vox/guitar, Mika Hakki-bass and Esben Willems-drums

This three piece fuzzed out stoner metal band out of Sweden made serious leaps in terms of quality on their latest album.  This is one of those albums that got stuck in my head from the first play and it hasn’t let go yet.  Another of these albums that might not be forging a new path, but it do what it do so damn well that it just rose to the top of the stoner metal heap in 2019.  Seriously, I love this album.
